UpPipe question

Are there any advantages to just welding up the uppide vs. deleting the EGR cooler?

The only advantage is in being able to fool a visible inspection. It still leaves the scoop in the up-pipe which hurts turbo spool up.

Can the scope be cut out when the pipe is welded up?

You can cut the scoop out pretty easy or if you have an 04 like me there isn't even one to cut out... If you live in Cali or are broke then welding it up is the way to go... If you are anywhere else and have $200 just delete it and gain some peace of mind

The cooler was replaced about 7k miles ago so I know it's in good shape but I would like to just prevent the exhaust flow for now. Mine is an 07.

It would be tough. Easier to buy an 03 up-pipe that doesn't have a scoop to begin with.

Cutting out the scoop is easy...just need to know how to use the equipment.

Welded up-pipe or delete kit both work well. #992 on how to skin that cat!!

Aren't they different dimensions than the later model year up-pipes ....

The difference the 03 and early 04 have a different egr cooler flange(round type of egr cooler). The late 04 model has the square type of cooler and has no scoop for exhaust flow. 05-07 have the scoop and are made for the square type egr cooler. I just bought a late 04 model egr pipe and am putting it in with my new modded uppipes

Square type of egr cooler has a SHORTER pipe/neck to connect to the uppipe
Round type of egr cooler have a LONGER pipe/neck to connect to the uppipe.
