Is it beneficial to remove the strip of metal between the 2 pipes of the cs dp?

lol that snot a restrictor. thats there to separate the exhaust flow from the turbine and the wastegate so that you dont have any turbulence going into the DP.

It's what they call a divorced wastegaste design.The only time you need to mess with that is when/if it interferes with the operation of the WG flapper on a IWG turbo like the k04, which some people had problems with. That = bewst creep.
I bent mine a tad, just to be certain and it never was a problem.

No. You'd know if it was causing a problem. I guess you don't have EMS?
Do you have a DH?
Is the DP already on the car?
It was an isolated problem. You'll be fine.
