Opinions on EGR Block-off plates...?

Ok, before everyone says just take the damn things off or buy Bullet Proof EGR Coolers, I'd like to hear what opinions are on block off plates now? First off I can't take them off because of inspections, and can't afford the BP Coolers as of now. So with the Mini Maxx shutting off the EGR system, is it best to just leave it in place w/o anything or block it off with plates and then remove them for testing....?

Thanks

I'd like to here this also because I want to keep the soot out of the intake but plan to return to stock if I sell it. don't want to permanently delete plus if they ever bring testing back, would hate to have to re install everything. If they could come up with some block off plates and something that re routes the coolant it would be perfect. And easily returned to stock.

Plates will prevent the exhaust from entering the motor, but does not prevent future cooler failure. Full delete is the best idea. There is a way of doing the plates and then rerouting the coolant via a hose. I debated this when I did my egr delete, but decided to go full delete. I will see if I can find the write up. In my eyes if you are just going to do the plates and not reroute the coolant, you might as well just keep the egr disabled via tuning.

I wrote up a thread a while back about the re-rout with the coolant. I'm still thinking about it, just wanted to hear if anyone has had issues with the plates and back pressures???

My roomate at the time ran plates for about 3 weeks while he was waiting on a backordered elbow to do the rest of the delete and he wasnt having issues with pressures. I dont have any log data to back that claim up, but he didnt have any issues for the short period of time.
