Pulling the Turbo

I am going to pull my turbo out and install a turbine housing, but i was just wondering what the benifit of a wastegate was. I am going to have to disconnect it and if i have troubles with it can i just remove it and leave it off or do i really need it on there to keep from overboosting? Will it hurt my turbo to have it off? Also I am getting ride of my edge and getting gauges and a PHP chip.

Danger zone for longevity is over 28psi, in my experience.

1.0 housing with stock injectors and a hot tune will make 34psi(+/-) so be careful on how often you take it that high.
