winter EGR delete gone bad!

So, my turbo puked on me Sunday, I got it home and started pulling it apart. Found an 03 turbo in the forsale section, while waiting for the turbo to ship, I thought it was a good time to do my egr delete an cooling filter(since it had been sitting in my garage for two months) So I did the up pipe first, PITA! ended up just cutting the bolts with a dremel. After all that BS I finally got to the the actual egr cooler and after struggling with that for a half an hour I finally got that out, now keep in mind Im in Chicago and its bout 10* here and Im doing it in my driveway. Went to install the egr delete and iwas checking with my finger to see if there was anything on the underside of the intake that would prevent the o ring from seating, AND THERE WAS NO HOLE WHERE THE EGR GOES, I grabbed a mirror and it looked like it was welded shut then machined flat. Then I looked at the cooler and someone had put a dorman freeze plug in the back of it to block the exhaust gases. It was a ghetto egr delete that you cant tell was done by looking at it, Is this something Ford was doing as a fix, without breaking the law, or is this common? If I had known about it I might have left it and saved my efforts and frostbitten fingers! Just wondering

Ford wouldn't do something like that, had to be the prior owner.

that scares me, hopefully it was preventive maintenance and not a quick fix to sell a truck with a blown HG. Ive only had it a month now.

It blocks exhaust flow. But does not reroute coolant flow
