EGR Blockoff Kit Question

Im looking into the Outlaw Diesel block off kit not the complete delete. My question is what are the pros and cons between the block off kit and the complete delete. I have heard talk of this helping to save head gaskets but im wondering if just the block off is good enough? Thanks in advance!!

The block off is cheaper and will allow you to pass visual inspections. It is also better than stock but the egr cooler can still fail. A delete is the best way to go but the block off is better than nothing

How does the egr cooler fail if the block is preventing any gases to heat up the coolant?

I also have this same question - what are the pros and cons of just blocking vs removing the EGR cooler?

its still connected to the uppipe, just because the tissue paper plate is in there doesnt mean it wont get the heat. i have seen the heat burn a hole right through the center on that place. you wouldnt know and then you run into problems anyways

heres a picture of a failed plate from my buddies trucks:

this is my uppipe with the egr connector cut off and welded. i also cut off my balance ports found on the 03 intake manifolds, welded off the egr valve hole. my manifold is very similar to FCDP's kit...mainly because Adam helped me make mine
