California egr delete

After some time searching on ebay and the org I have finally purchased and received the parts I need to get rid of my egr cooler. I bought a blocked off cooler and used up pipe that I plan on using for my California egr delete. I cut the scoop out of the up pipe today and was wondering if should block it off also? I bought a 1.5 freeze plug to block it off but wondering if it is even worth welding up.

If you want to look original there's a plate some shops sell that sit inside of that, you insert the plate and re connect the v-band

I've seen that plate but with my cooler block off I do not think it will work. The freeze plug I got needs to be ground down so the cooler and up pipe can sit flush. But my question is if the cooler blocked off should I even go threw the trouble of blocking the up pipe?

If the egr cooler is blocked and you connect the v band you wouldn't need to.
I would either weld it shut
Or get a solid up pipe. Idk how hott the freeze plug can stand before melting.

Just make sure the gaskets are used when connecting it to the v band. I think your fine either way. If the freeze plug is used make sure it's welded so it doesn't kill your turbo

Ya I think I will weld the plug just to keep the heat off the cooler end., and maybe help with exhaust flow a little.
When searching up pipe scoop removal a lot of peoe did it different ways. I just removed it with a cutting wheel on a dremel. If you cut it out by inserting the dremel on the egr cooler exhaust outlet you will have room to remove it. Other popular ways people have remove it is with a Sawzall or die grinder but I have neither so dremel had to work.
