You're basically correct. I removed the pipe that used to feed the EGR, drilled and tapped the plate that was blocking off the end of that pipe, and put it where the pipe I removed had been connected. The joints are both the same size.
It's hard, but it's not as hard as removing the EGR in the first place. It would also be a lot easier if you had someone helping you. I did it all by myself, which made some parts of the process really difficult.
If you have an EGR delete already, you already have most of the pieces you need to do this. You can do it all with the existing pieces, actually, but I'd recommend using a different fitting to attach the EBP sensor than the stock fitting and steel tube. I used different fittings and got the sensor in what I think is a good place, and I'm really happy with the results. If you were going to copy me exactly, you'd need 2 flare fittings, some copper wire, heat shrink tubing, some cable wrap, and electrical tape. And the ability to solder. The only unusual part of the deal is the flare fittings for the sensor, which you're unlikely to find locally. Everything else is run of the mill hardware store stuff.
