Your cooler is broken - as in leaking coolant into the intake? Is your truck crapping white smoke? If the cooler is leaking coolant, it's too late to block it off. It's toast.
Are you still under warranty? If so, I wouldn't risk trying to fix a busted cooler myself. If not, I still wouldn't risk trying to fix a busted cooler. Can you bit the bullet for a delete kit and install yourself? A delete kit is cheaper than a new cooler from Ford.
If so, when you block off the up-pipe on 05 and newer, there's a scoop in the pipe that should be cut out with a sawzall. Don't forget to do that before you put it back in.

Yes, if the cooler is not already leaking. Your custom tunes should take care of the check engine light you'll get for low EGR flow. If not, call IDP.

BLKF250,

You still have to reroute the coolant so it continues it's path. I would not buy another cooler and plug it. Get that POS out of there forever.

I just received First Coast's EGR delete. AWESOME PRODUCT! Excellent customer service, excellent welds. The modified intake manifold I received looks brand new. My current intake I have to send back is BAD inside from the 5 years of that CCV going into it. Can't wait to install it next weekend.
