Default PA: Inspection with an External Wastesgate

Alright guys, I've been planning on running an ewg on my daily but I'm now thinking of when it comes time for state inspection/emissions.

What are you guys who are running a ewg in PA do what it's time for inspection? I don't know if it's legal or not (I'm guessing not). So I would like to find out what you guys are doing.

Know someone.

Otherwise I guess you could make a block off plate, just know you'll have unlimited boost and drive accordingly. You could also plumb it back into the downpipe.

Yeah, I've thought about buying a crappy eBay downpipe and cat and plumbing into it that I put on for inspection. It wouldn't be terrible to swap on and off considering the wastegate attaches with a vband.

Just wondering what others do before I go making it.

By far the easiest thing to do would be buy a v-band block off plate and slap the internal wastegate actuator back on if its not welded.

You would be safe to drive out of boost to and from the shop. Or you could get it tuned for the internal if you ever want to switch back.
