modified intake manifold for EGR Delete

So I picked up an intake manifold and hacked off the portion that goes to the EGR cooler. I am going to get it welded up. Would I also need to have the coolant port on the underside of the manifold welded or would a pipe plug or something else work.

Well I am not sure exactly of what you are asking here but I think I know. Basically what needs to be done is you cant have any coolant flowing from the water pump through whatever port is left since you cut the EGR portion out. So whether you weld it from the bottom, back, or stick a plug in it; the coolant flow path needs to be blocked and then you can just run a hose from the oil cooler cover to the degas bottle. Hope this helps.

I just picked up another intake and plan on doing this too. I also plan so other mods to help it flow better.

here is a pic of my gogo compared to stock. The water is routed directly back to the degas bottle from the oil cover. You can see how much Gogo cuts off.

I am doing this to a manifold I bought from a wrecking yard, so that it is ready to go when I tear the truck apart. How does the water pump mate up to the port on the intake manifold? Is it a gasket, or an o-ring? If I have the port welded shut, would I need to have it machined smooth, or would a plug of some sort work?

Do you have any pics of the intake installed on the motor?

It's sealed with a large o-ring.

Any gains on this? And is it worth the extra money?
