Openmouth allows wastegate gases to mix too early and can cause back pressure against the turbine. A properly measured and installed divider plate gets rid of the threat of the minor lag that you'd see from a non divorced setup. Not a huge deal unless your moving a larger amount of air over stock setups and then you'd be better off with an external wastegate.
