Use the "T" that you cut off. Some stainless steel would make the best patch for the hole.

Is there a way to just remove the scoop from the OEM pipe and not have to patch it?

Yea...remove the pipe, cut out the scoop, weld a 1.5" plug inside the "T" and reinstall. This is reffered to as the "sneaky pipe" version since once you install it you can't visually tell the difference.

is it better to just cut out the "t" complete and patch it or can i get away with just cutting out the scoop and welding in a freeze plug?

From what I've read here and elsewhere, removing the connection to the EGR cooler leads to cracks in the flexible section of the up-pipe. I don't know if it's true or not, but to be on the safe side I would either....

(1) connect the stock up-pipe to the EGR cooler after blocking that port with a frost plug, or

(2) get a solid up-pipe (no flexible section) with the EGR tubing removed from some aftermarket vendor.

I've had the "sneaky pipe" installed for quite awhile now. No issues here. Do what is most convient for you either option will work great.
