    The turbo has a wastegate, but it does not come stock with an external wastegate

    The internal one is integral to the turbo exhaust housing while an external one basically bridges the uppipe and downpipe so exhaust doesn't ever have to enter the turbo when the wastegate is open.

    what are the benefits or replacing the downpipe vs the up pipe? I have 3" exhaust and a full cold air intake system that has not been electronically adjusted for the change in airflow.....

    Well on an '02 you're not going to get the boost creep of an '06+ and would relieve you of a cat; however, replacing your uppipe will aslo relieve you of a cat and quicker spool up
