On the 1989/1990 ur-quattro, you can exercise the valve from the fuel pump 
relay.  It's possible you have the same style of ECU - maybe someone can help.

On the ur-quattro, you stick a fuse into the top of the fuel pump relay and 
then switch on the ignition.  One of the electrical components (I think the 
first is the fuel pump itself) will be "exercised".  Pull the fuse for four 
seconds, replace it, and another one will start.  I think it's the cold start 
valve.  Whatever.  As you proceed, one of the components selected will be the 
wastegate control valve.  It's not so much a question of open vs. closed - it's 
a crossover valve.
