Thanks, all you did was the block plate, not the cooler delete. How long has it been and have you had any more problems with it since. Thanks

I got mine from Elite Diesel. Not sure where to tell you to get yours. You can get cheaper ones I'm sure. Someone will chime in here and give some suggestions.

Either punch your own out of 18ga sheet-metal 1-11/16" round, or get a 1/2" freeze plug, or order it from DPP here>Discount Power Parts

I have an up pipe and EGR cooler coming in the mail I think I am just going to remove up pipe scoop and weld off each end of the cooler so it all still looks like its there but will never end up failing on me.
