interal wastegate?

on an internally wastegated turbo can you block off the wastegate and use an external?

reason i ask is i want a gt2871rs but i cannot find one that is externally wastegated and i rly rly do not want an if you could find me an externally wastegated gt2871rs or a block off plate thatd be nice. thanks


remember that building a car shouldn’t come from parts it should come from deep inside your soul. let the car speak for all the emotions, memories and experiences youve made and the car will take a life of its own. truth over fame.
