You could remove the anodize with Easy Off oven cleaner then polish the aluminum.

Would there be any performance difference between a 20" long wastegate dump tube and a 30" long wastegate dump, both plumbed back in at the same angle, etc. All else being the same except overall length?

Probably the same benefit as going from 83.5mm to 84mm pistons.

i.e. no.

I'll tend to agree, thanks andrew. The 20" version should be about $120 cheaper
too.
