Default Guys with T2X and EWG - Need Help

Curious how you guys keep the IWG closed while running an EWG. I could weld it easily, but I hate mods that can't be reversed when I have other options. What can I use to hold her tight?

Another t2x housing?

I have a standard t25 housing with a vband welded onto it and the internal wg hole welded up. Just do that and have a separate downpipe

On my FM3 downpipe they use a bolt that pushes against the flapper to keep it closed. Works fine.

That sounds very doable. I'm building the DP and the flange is closed off on the WG side. I could just put a blocker in there. Thanks for the idea.
