Egr Block off plate or Delete?

Is there something better about doing the full delete over just installing the plate? How much would a shop charge for the plate install? Thanks

It depends on your pocket book and mechanic skills. Weak skills will cost you. The plate install is the easiest way and can be done in the driveway with hand tools.

In the end the full delete is a better option since the EGR cooler is removed preventing the chance of rupturing. You may require the use of a tuner to turn off a soft code or CEL.

Hmmm, so the plate is easy. Ya because im not really interested in dropping a ton of cash on it. Just a bit more preventative measures.

If you can pull the EGR up-pipe and have it welded closed you will save some bucks. As I said expect a CEL or soft code with low EGR flow.

Justin I bought a "EGR spool" off eBay that goes in place of the OEN EGR valve to stop the exhaust flow into the intake manifold. It costs about $75 and you can install it yourself in about ten minutes. I've had mine close to two years now with no problems.

Just type in "Ford EGR spool" in the eBay search near the top of the eBay web page. If you still can't find it let me know and I will send you a link to it. It is a little hard for me to give that now as I'm using an iPhone to do this reply.
