Wastegates and turbo upgrades ?

Anyone out there doing turbo upgrades doing anything with rebuilding/fixing..etc.. the wastegate issue these stock tubos have ?

I know ASR and a couple others are using the stock housing/wastegate as a core, and milling/replacing the cartridge...

I DO NOT want another war about who's using what cartridge, or who's copying who.... whatever...

Really just curious, from those that have seen any of the upgraded turbos, or from those who are making them.... what's the deal with the wastegates ?

I have cores to use, they have some slight play in the wastegates themselves, similar to the one video someone recently posted.... should i really spend thousands on upgrading those ?
