@bluedevil6 do you cap off where your exhaust used to meet up to the EGR valve? Or is that just left open for debris and exhaust to flow?

Even though I'm not bluedevil6, I have done this mod and yes, you HAVE to cap off the exhaust manifold. I found a brass cap at home depot and just crossed it the best I could. Been like that for 4 years now with no issues. I can't remember the size that it was but I took a piece of clay and pressed it onto the threads to get an imprint. Took the clay imprint to the store and matched it up.

I used some pliers and smashed the end coming from the manifold enough to weld it closed it took all of like 30 minutes most of which was because I couldn’t get the tube to unbolt from the EGR

That's good to know for others wanting to do the mod. I may have gotten confused reading it back in the day now that I think about it. It may have been about removing the EGR all together and just leaving it plugged in that would have cause the cel issue.
