I concur. Although, I have seen downpipes with that little divider bit welded in. I think it was the Cusco.

This could NOT be used on a stock downpipe, as it would block the wastegate entirely

Seems like most divorced wastegate downpipes (at least that I've seen) have a little plate like that. If they didn't, this might be good. Don't think it'd be much good for a bellmouth downpipe though.

Would be worthless. The wastegate in the turbo wouldn't even be opening so diverting the gas wouldn't make a difference. Also you don't even really need a bellmouth dp with an EWG for that same reason.

Let alone the fact that when you do ease off boost, the wastegate flapper doesn't open far enough to "get out of the way" of wastegate flow (flow exiting the wastegate port still hits the flapper on an angle, and gets diverted over into the flow coming thru the turbine wheel)...but people still pay the big bucks for "divorced bell mouth" snake oil.

I've been preaching the same thing... divorced makes sense if you think think the gate opens fully. in reality it barely opens, so all the flow is being shot straight over to the side anyway.
