Its because the turbo uses a divided T4 exhaust housing, so you need two wastegates to regulate boost pressure on both sides. Our turbos do not use a divided exhaust housing, hence only one wastegate. If you go back to the previous pictures, you can see where the exhaust manifold shows the divided section.
