Also I plan on doing my block off/re-route this weekend, I'll post up some pictures and fill everyone in on how it goes. My main concern is tearing apart the lower gasket trying to make a space for the plates....what size bolts are the egr cooler clamps? I plan on buying some SAE ratcheting wrenches to make things go smoother...already have a metric set...

Shouldn't have an issue with the gasket. May need to pry a little to get a gap to slip it in then push it in place with a little tapping.

Pay attention to the way the block off plate is stamped. Typically one side will be sharp the other rounded simply because of how it's stamped. I would make sure the rounded edge is toward the gasket side so it can't tear it during install or removal.

Unfortunately, I can't remember the sizes of the bolts.

EGR cooler clamp bolts are a 10mm or 11mm..... I can't remember. I used an electric impact gun on many bolts under that hood. Screw all of that hand wrenching

Well I got my plates, they have no slots....so that sucks....just 2 holes on each one, what's up with that dfuser? Guess I have to make a phone call...it's not a big deal to cut the slots myself but I thought they took care of that. That's what the picture shows anyway...

Slots???? When you install the plates and tighten them to the existing components the system is blocked off. Basically they are flat metal with holes drilled in them for bolts to compress them.

I thought the holes were more of a passage, so you don't have to take both bolts out....you just back the bolts out, create a space, slide in the plate and tighten down...

Whether you leave the coolers or take them off, you have to take the bolts out to put the blocker plates in place

The website shows the plates having the hole extend to the edge of the plate on both sides so you do not have to remove the bolts, just make a space and slide in, I think I will hit mine with a grinder and slide them in there. Seems like it would save a big headache and make it go much faster...and thank you plumbingmedic! I'll let you know how it goes...
