I havent so far seen any codes as i have the Edge set to delete Codes at Start up.

I used a piece of 1/8" Aluminum to make all the blockoffs. 2" wide, just traced the housing and cut a 2" circle.

I just did it this evening, No MPG reports yet. It does feel a little more responsive but cannot tell for sure yet.

I made the blockoffs myself out of a piece of 2" x 2' x 1/8" Aluminum i got at home depot for a few $'s

what tools did you use to cut the plates out of the sheet of aluminium?

Good pictorial! This will help a lot of us to do the EGRendectomy.
I thought that you can unhook one of those plugs after you block all of the ports off?

Removing the EGR prevents the exhaust from going back through the engine. Look at the picks of all the soot inside the Intake Housing. Without the EGR, you shouldnt get that build up.

I used a bandsaw and a belt/disc Sander to make the Blockoffs.

The plug you need to unhook and leave unhooked is on the EGR Housing. Some leave that on with all the piping for the stock look. They just install thinner plates inbetween.

This is defiantly sticky worth, step by step guide, with pictures, and you even included the bolt sizes. I swear at first I thought this must be the instructions to some upcoming EGR delete kit the quality is that good.

I’ve got some left over sheet metal form another project; I just might have to give this a try.
