Cost effective EGR Delete kit

Ok guys my warranty is going up in oct. and i am wanting to delete the egr. Now heres the kicker....i dont have alot of money to spend. So what my question is, what is the most cost effective way to delete the egr in a kit. I know that i could probably do this myself but i dont have the time nor the patience(sp). Now like i said it needs to be a "kit" b/c my tech friend is doing this under the radar at the dealership. Now i know alot of ppl are going to say FCDP and yes they do have a very nice kit but I only have about 300-400 to spend on this project. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appriciated. TIA.

-Kevin.

Wait a bit longer and save up another $150 and you can get the best kit, might as well do right the first time.

Lol ya'll guys never answer the question.

He already stated that he knows FCDP is the best but made it clear he can't afford it. Therefore, instead of telling him something he already knows, answer the man's question.

Other than getting something of e-bay the blocks the cooler on both sides and a frezze plug in the coolant tub, can't say I've seen too many "kits". I've seen on e-bay a dummy valve. I just bolts in where the real thing would be, same o-ring and gasket all you do is unplug the valve and install dummy. But with your 05' your gonna get and EGR code all the time.

Just to add, you can cut the flange to the up pipe too, and weld a block plate

If you read what I said Clearly. I stated Yes there kit is good. But I designed my own. Cause I have the knowledge on how to do it. There are different designs for different kits you can price around but low price is not always good quality as well. If your looking for another try RCD.

If you can weld, or know someone who does, pull the y-pipe on the passengers side and cut the 'y' out and weld it up. Also plug the end of the cooler.

If your cooler is still good, it should last forever without hot exhaust gasses passing through it.

You should be able to come up with your own. Cale at BTS done mine for around 350 for a complete delete if I remember correctly.
