Why not just weld plugs in the EGR cooler?

Is there some better advantage/reason to get a delete kit and not just plug the EGR on the ends and reinstall...? Seems like it would do the same thing, so I'm thinking there must be some advantage to the delete kits for 300.00 .

I was wondering, seems like it will make it look stockish for the visual inspection also... and am i correct in thinking i can just leave the EGR valve in place, and plugged in after that with no issues but a CEL?

So you cut and welded the up pipe to stop the flow, and did not plug the EGR cooler?

I'm thinking that is the thing to do. So after that, you just leave everything else in place and plugged in correct?

Cut the scoop out of your up pipe too. People refer to this as a sneaky bypass.

I just got my truck back from getting the EGR delete, along with other things. My CEL did come on, as they said it might. Is there anyway to get this to turn off for now until I get an SCT?

It would be better to use stainless. Thicker is better. A shop here said they use a new egr cooler and fill it full of jb weld and top it off with freeze plugs welded in. I said no thanks to that. Had it welded up by a buddy for $50 bucks
