EGR plate install issues

Did anyone have issues with getting their EGR cooler to slide back? I loosened the clamps on the horizontal and both vertical and the cooler wont even budge. Any tips????

What's your opinion on the mod? I'm hoping to install the plates once I get tuned. Ideally that will help with coolant puking.

It is a worth it mod, and great insurance. It will lower your EGT's some, and it provides safety just in case your EGR cooler were to bust. You have to have tuning to have the EGR valve closed to have them on the truck. Any tunes that do not shut off the EGR valve, or a stock truck, cannot be ran with the plates.
