What is the easiest way to get to the pipe to block it off? Now that I have an SCT I wanna cap off that hot exhaust.

That's a good one if you have an 05-07 and have to remove the scoop. Since you have an 04, you only need to install a block off plate inside the up-pipe. Remove your passenger front tire, remove your exhaust down pipe and your up-pipe.

Just unplug the EGR while the engine is off. No gas being recirculated equals no gas coming in.

same here, mine has been unplugged for close to 6 months. I took it to the dealer about 2 months ago and they didn't even catch it.

You can still boil your coolant even with your EGR disconnected.. The reason is because while the exhaust won't flow through your EGR cooler, the heat will still be convected and since it has nowhere to go, it deadheads inside the cooler and builds up heat. It does help because your not re-injecting hot exhaust gas back into the intake but won't prevent the EGR cooler failures and associated problems.

No check engine lights, no codes thrown, and no limp modes here. Works great and I'm glad I unplugged it 8 months ago.
