looking for partial EGR delete kit

The idea here is I have a work truck with a active EGR system. Its a 2004 just like my personal truck. The up pipe to the turbo/ EGR has a small crack in it. I need to repair it, but I had an idea. Can I purchase a by pass up pipe and block off plate to make the EGR inactive. I think by not subjecting the EGR to constant high Exhause Gas Temps, it may survive for a longer time. I also would think the coolant would run cooler. I dont want to tear the top of the engine off to delete the entire EGR. Does anyone make a kit for what I am looking for and would it be worth it or just replace with stock parts and keep everything working as is? Thanks for any advise!

You would be better off just doing the egr delete. After you take the turbo and the up pipes off, you are half way there. Prob more than half way cause the turbo and y pipes are the hardest part of the whole job.

I Thought that I would be able to reach the up pipe from the rear of the engine. I know when I did my Up pipe on my personal truck I had the whole top of the engine off so I dont have a refrence as to any other way. Its been a long time since I tore the top of the engine off. I guess what you are saying makes sense. Darn, looks like a lost weekend to wrenching on the work truck.

Believe me, personal truck I wouldnt even think twice about it. But being a commercial truck in dirty jersey, I am scared of DOT checks. I know that bypassing the EGR will render it usless, but at least if anyone ever checked, the truck would look stock. They would have to dig deep to uncover the sneaky pipe. I have heard that there is a company that sells a mock up pipe that looks completey stock but is welded shut internally. Then no one would eve know, but I cany seem to find it on line.
