Yes the WGFV  will limit boost if defective. If it's inoperative, the 
default valve position is "wide open",  which typically will limit 
the max boost to about 1.4 bar (there's no reason I can think of to 
expect "high/low, high/low"). The Bentley states a specified 
electrical resistance measurement across the WGFV terminals; also 
there is the ECU "output test", which can provide an audible 
verification of WGFV operation.
