Have the Up-pipe, anything else before install?

I have a modified up-pipe to prevent exhaust from traveling to the EGR cooler. I'm thinking that's all you really need correct?
Can I just leave everything else the way it is? I believe the cooler is leak free.
Will I need anything else for installation such as gaskets?

I want to make absolutely sure everything's covered so my daily will be driveable the following morning.

Why didnt you just Delete the whole thing ? So your only doing half of it ? Also get yourself a coolant filtration.

Yes, I have one. The reason why I want to leave the cooler is just to make things easier and cheaper. I really don't see a reason to remove it?
If I did, I'd have to fabricate block off plates and reroute the coolant. By leaving it, all I need to do is disconnect the rear clamp and swap the up-pipes. Unless there's something I'm missing?

Good thinking

^^Thanks. Is this the same route you took? Can you explain the plug that you have stated in your sig? Is it for plugging the exhaust side of the cooler, or the EGR valve? Did you unplug the valve afterwards?

I had the EGR valve sut off with tuning. I run a "sneaky pipe" as well and have been happy with the results. Over 80K on it and glad I did it.

I have the electrical cord unpluged. This keeps the the boost air from entering the egr system. I would plug the up-pipe 100% but that would trip a code. I cant do that cuz I have to smog it. The exhaust flows right over the path to the egr cooler but the 1/4" hole is just to feed the system some slight pressure. The coolant temps are much cooler also. Besides the faster turbo and lower egt's the coolant temp difference is more than I would have guessed.

OIC. Since I don't have to worry about emissions, I'll probably spot weld the valve shut and get a new tune from IDP afterwards.
