your waste gate needs to sense how much boost pressure there is. One end of the hose goes to the head of the waste gate. The other end of the hose can go to the compressor side of the turbo (if yours has a port there) or it can go over the engine to the intake, or put a "T" in the line that goes to your AFC and plug in the hose to the waste gate on that T.

the above mentioned adjustable elbow is only needed if you want to slow how quickly the wastegate head is filled with boost pressure. You can partially close said elbow to slow the boost pressure getting to the wastegate.
