So, I made an aluminum plate for the intake horn, and two steel plates for the manifold.

I was all set to do the EGR cooler delete today but I am not sure if I should risk damaging the gaskets.

Am I being too cautious?

I took the valve off the horn to make my final holes in the aluminum and the gasket there looked fine. Some sealant came off but the gasket itself was not damaged.

Should I just suck it up and do it?

i woul try it.. if it leaks then buy some new gaskets....

or run down to napa or some auto store and get some sealant and put just alittle bit of that on when you do it..


just my .02
Yeah, that's true. I may order some anyway, if it leaks I'll replace them. They'll be a hell of a lot easier to get to after it's all gone!

Done! Took a while. Got done with some of it and realized I needed a stubby 15mm and a deep 10mm. Had to put it back together and run to Depot.

Got back and took it apart. Got it all done. I lost one of the rear nuts. I think it dropped onto the tranny or rear of the engine somewhere. Luckily, I had a few extra nuts that fit those studs!

I need to check if it's leaking, though.
