EGR block off w/ intake elbow... and not removing coolers?

Having an issue that I think is a sticking or stuck EGR valve. ( Sticking EGR valve? )

Getting more and more paranoid about those coolers and the possibility of them letting coolant get to the intake. I need a solution ASAP to get this thing back on the road and rid of the EGR altogether...

Is there anything wrong with using a simple block off plate, and an intake elbow together? I don't have time right now to completely gut the EGR system, but need to do something. Definitely want the EGR cooler disconnected or blocked at the intake side so it is physically impossible for a leaking cooler to feed coolant back in.

If your gonna bother with installing a block off plate you might aswell just delete the coolers all together since your gonna have it all gutted anyways.

You cant do that because the factory elbow supports the vertical cooler

Makes sense... thanks for the replies....

Need a blockoff kit by Friday... any advice on the best kit for that? Some have 2 block off plates, others have coolant plugs.... is one better over the other? Blocking off the coolant sounds like a good idea...

Thanks for any input!! Have to call somewhere in the next couple of hours to order this...

You see this is what was going on in my mind to... make a intake elbow that exactly matches the EGR dimensions (but no restrictions) as to cooler attachment position but still be a blind connection. no plate involved. I think this would appeal to those who want to leave the coolers in place for annual emission testing purposes etc. The real EGR is set aside for latter if needed. Just like my Cat/DPF unit.
