egr delete & banjo bolt ???

so my 05 is showing signs of egr & oil cooler issues, i ordered an egr delete kit and factory oil cooler online and a fuel spring upgrade kit and banjo bolts and washers from my local dealer, here is where the questions come in , the dealer sent me 4 2" x 3/4" steel bushings for who knows what instead of the 4 crush washers , and the egr delete kit showed up tonight missing the blue hose and the actual egr valve block off plate along with all the hardware not really concerned with nuts and bolts ive got plenty of those . thats my luck ! i have tomorrow off to do the project and want to do as much as i can, so does anyone know if i can use a copper crush washer like the ones on the 6.0 banjo bolts ( maybe reuse the 6.0 crush washers?) or do i have to use the ones that are supposed to come from ford ( correct me if im wrong part # w303659 ?)....... question #2 for the blue "heater hose" is there a reason i cant use heater hose right off the shelf at the part store?...... question #3 im sure there was a mistake and the company will send the block off plate for the egr valve / hole , in the mean time any reason why i cant install everything else and leave the egr valve in just unplug it ? or just make my own block off plate for now? still want to do what i can tomorrow so i can get this back on the road and i know someone here has these answers. thanks

When I drilled my banjos out I used my old crush washers no problem. As far as the coolant hose just go to the auto store and get a piece and some hose clamps, that's what my kit came with. Once the kit is installed the valve should not be able to drop all the way into place so you might have to make something for the meantime. Keep the EGR valve plugged in an zip-tie to the alternator or somethin, it will throw a low circuit code if unplugged.

cool thanks , i figured as much but wanted to hear it from someone who has done it , i have heater hose kicking around the shop somewhere , and i think i have an exhaust flange i can weld a plug in thats about the right size to block the egr port. i really dont care about the light if it stays on i will have some custom tunes for the sct soon anyhow and that will take care of the light if it comes on

You will get 2 codes I believe, one for low EGR flow since its deleted and one if the valve is unplugged. Custom tunes will take care of the low EGR flow code but I don't think there is any way of getting around leaving the valve plugged in. Maybe someone can chime in but I believe the circuit has to be completed or else the truck will act funny. Ive looked around for a dummy plug but had no luck.

if i saw this sooner i would have advised installing the upgraded stc fitting while you had it apart. its a know high fail part on the hpop that is easy to access while you have it torn down that far.
