There is no "wastegate" after the turbo. The only thing after the turbo is the exhaust brake if you have one. Just trying to understand, you have a hole in the exhaust pipe coming off the turbo, right? I would take that section of the exhaust with me to a Diesel parts store and see if they can match it. Most of the big car parts stores are carrying more diesel and diesel performance parts. Look for a shop that does diesel exhaust.
