EGR valve plug?

Has anyone ever seen an EGR eliminator like this for the 6.0L? It seems like a simple enough idea, but I need someone much smarter than me to know if it will cause the exhaust gas to build up back pressure or turbulance once it hit's this plug. Or for that matter any other issues anyone may see with this idea. Thanks

I am pretty sure we have had someone install that and left their EGR connected to the plug to keep from throwing a CEL. I can't remember who it was, though. To my knowledge, it's running fine...

I can't imagine it would be any diffrent from welding the real EGR shut. But do remember what Evil Eye is talking about. The real EGR would bolt up to the blocks that come with the kit, and would open and close as if it was still in place.

egr aluminum plug

I just bought one of those plugs. i got it to keep from welding the egr value. in case i get popped and have to replace all the smog stuff. i wouldn't install this aluminum plug without have already blocked off all exhaust from entering the egr cooler. my next big time project will be to remove the egr cooler completely, seal up the up pipe without ruining it, maybe even install studs and upgrade the banjos, straight pipe to the oil rail, ect filter, additional tranny filter and maybe even another external oil filter.
