Is there advantage or disadvantage putting the wastegate on the turbine housing? It probably is due to space constraint. Also, it seems like it is great for boost control, but I wonder would it affect the exhaust flow through the turbine housing at high boost?

Not an Expert, but from everything I've read, it's the best way to do it because it allows for great control of the boost, but it's usually not done because of the work required to weld to the housing. If you dig through drag racing forums where guys are building huge 10.5 cars and stuff they seem to do it pretty commonly, so I can't imagine there's too many issues at high boost levels.

Spending extra time to make more power, control boost better, and equalize back pressure is something we're always willing to do. We've been doing it this way on street and race cars for ten years so it isn't a new thing for us. Or 1500 horsepower turbo f1 cars. :-)

You get great boost control, but it is a bit of work to cut and weld it! Does not affect flow at all.

So do modifications have to be made to current HPF manifold users? ..

Looks like a well planned/designed kit I'm definitely looking forward to seeing the results, especially the different intake manifold/turbo combinations.

This is a completely different kit that was designed from the ground up. If you want to run the FSR exhaust manifold you would need to also get their downpipe (or make modifications to your current one), change your intake setup, change your intercooler piping, oil return, etc.

I'm curious to see some dyno runs with this manifold and WG location. We ultimately moved our WG to the turbine housing and made our header a twin scroll with the wg divided to the gate. Boost control is pretty optimal. I have ~150 dyno pulls with 4 different turbine housings on our kit with several exhaust combinations so I have plenty of data

We've been doing turbine housing wastegate mounts for ten years with great success on a variety of platforms.

Kit's are good to go for in house install and tune's!
