Question Wastegate ?

Ok I am finally starting to understand this system I have a Hydra ECU and running to this hydra is the hose coming out of the intake manifold also running off this is a T going to my AEM TRUBoost gauge. So I have the Intake manifold hose going to a T then going to Hydra and AEM Gauge. Then My shop has this hose running to my HKS BOV. Next I have a HKS Waste gate on my Turbo like a T25 or 28 I think this is running a hose to AEM Solenoid and out of that to the Same hose that I was speaking about above the intake manifold boost so forth this seems to me that this would give some inaccurate reading to the Hydra and AEM TRuboost correct? Should I bring this out the the solenoid to the Turbo Intercooler pipe pre-bov? Also I think the shop had my solenoid hooked up wrong originally I had to go back because my hydra was reading all over the place. I am starting to understand this.

Also Y8s if you read this I ordered the WB02 from jeremy he has been lots of help and I am further doing some basic dateloging and slowly understanding things. Thx everyone for all the help.

Ok this is what i got
Boost line layout:

intake mani- boost gauge, hydra, bov

Fitting off of the turbo itself- wastegate
Im probably wrong but this setup seem like it would have accurate results unless having it t'd off like that so much can affect the accuracy of the boost reading. My msp stock just t'd everything off the mani so i don see why it wouldn't work this way. Id assume you would want to run off the mani pressure.

Can someone else chime in on this?

Wastegate (Internal) hose coming out to solenoid another coming out of solenoid into another T for the intake mani, bov, boost gauges.
