Hey man which brand plates did you go with? I'm trying to find the ones that just block off the egr but I can only find ones that are for is you take out the egr. It would be great to find just the block off plates. Thanks!

Sorry, I should have worded my post better. I was thinking if I wanted to leave the cooler installed would I have to buy extra plates to block off the cooler holes? I need to do a coolant change anyway, I have 110,000 now, so I might just go ahead and delete the entire cooler. Thanks for the reply

If you're debating which way to go, just ask yourself this:

Do I ever plan on returning this truck back to stock?

Yes / maybe = install block off plates

No = do a full EGR delete

I bought a Sinister EGR delete kit and it has the plates for the full delete. I have the plates for the manifold with the bung for the temp probe, and the plate for the intake but I don't have plates to block off the holes that will be left on the EGR cooler. Are these plates that I can buy? I haven't seen these plates.

Gonna go to ford and get the orange coolant. Which is to spec per the diesel supplement manual.

And the instructions stated to pull the coolant line off the egr. That's how I lost some. Realized I never needed to after I was done.
