Help!! EGR Block Off

Ok, I'm Looking for a plate to block off my EGR Up Pipe.. I don't wanna delete the whole system. I just cost too much & takes too long & from what I understand If the Exhaust cant get in there the coolant won't boil. And if the EGR is shut off by the SCT then coolant cant get into the heads unless my cooler is alread bad & leaking which it isn't... I Need Some Prices & Places To Get This Piece.. Or If Anyone Could Tell Me How To Fab This Part That Is A Possibility As Well!! THANKS!!!

I would think you could just fab up a freeze plug and weld it in the up pipe????

Mr Hoosier, If you have the time and energy to remove the up pipe. Then remove the up pipe weld a freeze plug in the Y to the cooler and bolt it back up.
If you do not want to remove the up pipe. You can buy a block off plate ($35.00) and slip it in between the up pipe y to the cooler and the cooler itself.

Good luck.
I see you are up north. If you plan to remove the up pipe. Spray the bolts a day before. It will make life a bit easier.

Let me know how long it takes you.

Buy the way, I got a Tech file sent to me last month stating the 2.5's need to run 91 octane. You need to look into that 225 your running.


Crap, Sorry man. I am a Triton dealer and do about 300 Yamaha's a year. Big fan of the MPI TS'S. Iv'e had about 3. Although I have been running an Opti this year on our demo. I seem to get a bit more top end out of it.
But a true lover of the HPDI.

Also spend a week a year in Southbend (Godfrey Marine) Goshen (Keystone) and Elkhart.

Good country up there

Good luck with the block off If you run into any problems post them up.
