I was wondering if there is a way to remove the internal wastegate from a t3 turbo and using an external one. I tried doing some searches but couldnt find anything.

Does it harm the turbo in any way? How did you do it?

Sweet, thanks man. So is there any other differences between a turbo that has an internal and one that doesnt?

I would just leave the wastegate bolted on and unhook the vacuum hose from it. Otherwise you'll need to weld the flapper door shut. Thats what I did when I changed mine from internal to external.
