EGR Delete Shopping Questions

Okay, so from hanging around the forum for a while i know a LOT of you have done EGR deletes. Now it's my turn. While shopping around I have seen a lot of different approaches to the fix, and a couple of questions have popped up that I could use some input on.

To start off, I'm looking at getting the more popular design that replaces the EGR cooler with a small block off plate and the tube to keep the coolant circulating. However in this solution...

1. There are kits out there with a replacement up-pipe and those with just the block-off plate for the factory up-pipe. The rationalization for the replacement pipe that I have read is that the flex-joint in the factory up pipe tends to crack, and is restrictive. However, I'm guessing there is a flex joint there for a reason. That pipe must get shaken quite a bit, and if you replace that flex section with a standard, stiff pipe, won't the replacement pipe be stressed just as much and eventually crack?

2. If any of you go the other route and just use the round exhaust block-off puck, have you had any problems with it? Was it hard to ensure a leak-free seal?

Also, has anyone checked out IPR's new product? Got any opinions on their stuff?
