Homemade "Sneaky Pipe" idea...

I have been thinking instead of buying an EGR Up-Pipe w/ Blocker Plate, "Sneaky Pipe" from EDE ($185), why not modify my current up-pipe? My idea is to carefully cut off the EGR adapter. I could then heat the indented scoop with a torch. Using a press I would then push something just shy of up-pipe diameter through the pipe while keeping it heated. That should invert the pipe back to standard diameter. I could then weld the pipe slit shut and reattach the EGR adapter. Any thoughts?

Why not just buy some tubing for the up pipe and then TIG the scoop to it? Then just paint it black

Did pretty much the same thing....I cut the scoop out then just plated it with new metal so it's just an unrestricted pipe. The part that goes to the cooler is just a cap now...welded shut of course. I went this route cause I'm in crapifornia and theres no way to tell without taking it apart.

Only I could over think something so simple. Thank you guys for the input. I won't be wasting my time heating and pressing only to possibly ruin the up-pipe.
