Looks like 91.413 (b) requires integrated system test following any installation or maintenance where data error could be introduced.
Well, its an E/AB I am fully qualified to perform any and all maintenance, including RTS. So yes, I can remove the xponder, send to get tested, reinstall, and perform an operational test (or whatever the manual requires).

In a certified AC, there is a specific carve out for certain nav gear:

I have known people who have built a plane and did their own pitot static and when the DAR signed off the plane, they accepted it. It was fully documented with the equipment used just like a repair station would do it. Remember the transponder is part 91 not 43. The blame goes on the pilot who flys not the mechanic. Fixing is not the issue, it’s certification not ops check good.
