EGR Block Off Plates...Let me get this straight!

Ok, getting a P1335 code, truck is smoking alot more than usual and has been pretty sluggish. Figure the EGR is toast. Time to do a block off or delete.

So, I've been talking to some guys who have been hating on the block off plates and I don't really see why? If 1 plate is blocking off the the exhaust from entering into the lower cooler then both coolers aren't being heated to extreme temps anymore, other than the temp of the coolant, right?

Now everyone is saying you don't want to do plates because if the cooler cracks you'll have coolant going into the intake... Well wouldn't that one be blocked by the upper vertical cooler plate? Really if some how the cooler cracks somehow because 200* coolant, wouldn't the coolers just fill up? I guess the biggest problem would be the coolant filling up with all the left over crap in the coolers.

I know the other rant is about the EBP. The plates wouldn't make a difference compared to a full delete. You're plugging it at the same spot

Am I missing something?
