The stock turbo on those has a 60mm od 55 trim compressor wheel in a 0.42a/r housing with integrated CBV. Turbine side is a 0.48 a/r housing with no removable wastegate flange, it is integrated.

With those data you can compare it with other turbos. Size wise I'd say 18t and up is a worthwhile upgrade compared to this b204 unit. In stock form the wastegate is nothing special.

About the low boost, the actuator on those turbos is quite weak. Maybe look into that as well.
