Well, got the car back from the shop last week. There was evidence of prior cracking which had been patch welded at this spot (between the manifold and wastegate. They removed and cleaned the wastegate, cut out the bad pipe section, re-welded a new piece into the turbo manifold (all stainless pipe), and fabricated a bracket to help support the wastegate to avoid future issues. Good as new for about $600. Very reasonable for a Porsche shop, IMO.

I realized I never did come back and post pics...here's a couple from the weekend.
