2003 EGR Delete or Bypass?

I am on a college kid budget and pretty mechanically inclined. I called up the local diesel shops to do an EGR delete and they all quoted me between $650 and 750.

I have a first production run 03 6.0 and I heard that I can do a EGR bypass block off plate and not the full delete for a lot cheaper?
-Where can I get just the block off plate?
-Will I achieve the same result?
-Is it easier/less time-intensive to do?

or is it worth it to just buy the full $200 kit from egrdeletekit website?

Needing to do this before I head to California bass fishing for spring break and was thinking I could knock it out this Sunday.

All the help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Nick

what some people recommend may depend on whether you have smog testing in your state. If no visual smog inspection then I would recomend a river city diesel full egr delete. Or you could reroute the coolant on your own, lose the cooler and pair that with a y pipe like Innovative's. I have a block off plate and if I could do it over again I would. I'd pull the cooler out and weld a plug in both ends, reinstall and just leave the valve in place but that's because I live in ca. Maybe a gogo or elite intake plus innovative's y pipe would be a nice egr delete.

delete it entirely... a blocker plate still leaves the scoop in the up pipe which still directs 15% or whatever of exhaust drive pressure to the scoop, with the solid up pipe you will gain low end turbo spool up...plus the cooler still has a possibility of rupturing, get that crap out of the engine compartment.. get the full delete

I don't know anyone but I will assume someone in ca is running around with a full egr delete. Now whether they pass visual smog inspection is another thing, the smog tech has to visualy inspect egr valve is installed but it's anybody's guess if the smog tech can tell what an egr cooler looks like or if it has been removed.

I'm looking right now and it seems like there are a few variations of the kit on EBAY for under $150? I am looking for the easiest install and the better instructions it comes with the better.

Ok cool I dint think i'm worried not like they are put thru a choose to identify what everyone s likings like lol, i'm going with the delete for sure f the BS. Usually the ones that are cheap on Ebay are some cheap parts unless it a brand name, trust me I used to buy a lot and lots of mustang and lightning parts of there add a lot if tome you have to make sure its a name brand...just my 2 cents
