My Ride: VQ38DETT
more duty cycle puts more pressure on top of the gate keeping it closed, not open.

you get a boost spike becuase your initial duty cycle is too high, keeping the gate closed

You get boost creep from poorly designed manifolds and is hardly due to duty cycle on the gate.

The boost spikes are because the duty cycle is too low and the wastegate is too slow to respond, so the boost spikes before the gate opens all the way.

You get boost creep from the gate not being open far enough and it doesn't bleed off enough exhaust gasses.

At least, that's how I understand it.
