Just slap it on there so it's not blocking the wastegate arm and then wrap the wire around underneath. I did sort of an "X" pattern and it seems to be holding fine. I didn't remove anything to install it, so it probably isn't the best.

Here is one of those welds I was talking about:

Ben... the only other exhaust I see on Nameless's sight is this one:

Which doesn't look much quieter, although probably some.

You threw the overboost CEL? I'd be willing to bet that had more to do with weather and other factors, but it is possible that an exhaust could have a slight impact. If you're on the stock internal wastegate with the 20GXTR I'm surprised you're able to control boost at all. Mine overboosted uncontrollably once it got cold out, so I had to go to an EWG.

That weld doesn't look too pretty. On the Nameless page you linked there are 4 options, muffler delete, 4" mufflers, 5" mufflers, and the large Magnaflow muffler. The Magnaflow is the one they originally released. It is known to be very quiet. Quite a few people got it and were very disappointed in the lack of sound. Here are some photos of the muffler:
