I wouldn't even do that. Most quality wastegates start at $300. Hell, even OBX's wastegate weighs in at $200. If you can't afford that, I would suggest looking into a used one.

Don't cheap out on turbo parts. You're asking for trouble.

It depends ... Some things are hit or miss. I wont go cheap with injectors again .
The emusa wastegate holds very consistent boost.
I had my tuner add boost cut just to be safe.
If buying cheap parts gets somone on the road boosted I say go for it as long as the parts work. I got a half way deacent turbo for my civic and the rest was cheap.
I had issues with eBay injectors so I had to buy python 550s.i also has issues with the cheap $45 wastegate right off the bat but I get a $60 emusa and its been working fine.
