Default d16 wastegate question

d16y7 13g turbo, internally wastegated to 14 psi via spring.

How hard is it to go to an external wastegate? can i disconnect the internal one?

any recommendations on wastegate size and brand (cheaper is better, low budget.

setup is the turbo bolted to an hf (or hx) manifold with a 4 bolt flange. how would i set up an external wastegate?

Search its been done before, but since I got nothing to do.
Weld the flaper close on the turbo.
Drill out the o2 senor hole to around 38mm.
Weld an external wastegate flange to it.
Ebay wastegate work and are cheap. ($40-60)
