How much for a finger stick and blocker plate?
I might have a set in the shop if I didnít throw it away
$20 and shipping work if I can find it?

You don't have to do anything with the up pipe just using the plate. All you need to know is how to install them.

If you are just blocking the egr and not deleting, all you need is fingers sticks and the plate. This stops egr flow into the intake. A full delete needs a new cold pipe and solid mounting so the y bridge horn doesnít blow out as well as the new up pipe without the egr tube so it wonít crack.

Either way works well. You get a bit more flow with a new cold pipe and a less cluttered engine top end.

Thank you James. Right now Iím just going for peace of mind. At this many miles I canít imagine the egr and cat being in good condition. Plus, especially with these god awful loud rough worn out duratracs, my mpg could be better lol

dont you have a v2? someone on here could probably give you a helping hand and delete the egr if so. skip the fingerstick and just install the plate.

No sir I don’t. And don’t have a vin license for this truck yet or anything. Not even an auto cal. I sent tony my lb7 Eckard for tuning and never got around to getting any of the stuff for it.

Also may have glow plug and abs issues. Dealer supposedly replaced the glow plugs with 8 gm ones. When he cranked it in the lot threw a code for one plug. But light went off. Now today came back on for almost every plug. But cleared it and stayed off. Maybe a loose wire or bad fuse or controller? And the abs light comes on if I turn into or out of a place like pulling out of Taco Bell today with sharp turns it comes in but goes back off. Quirky truck. Still love it.

Need to clean the mounting surface on the hub for the abs wire. Also check for wheel bearing play.

Honestly, I don't find a full EGR delete to be worth the effort until you get into aftermarket turbo territory. Just stick a plate in and tune/fingerstick it to avoid the cracking issues on the up-pipe. And if it isn't throwing an EGR code yet, I don't even bother to block it. Though if you have some hot tunes it can push open, so a plate can help then. So until you have a code or some hot tunes, I'd leave it. My truck had functional EGR for almost 250k miles before it crapped out and I ran a plate for another 50k miles until I built the motor. The soot buildup isn't as bad in most trucks as the horror pictures you see online.

Just my ; I do the least effort possible to meet my goals, your mileage may vary.

That all said, I would re-route the PCV. EGR + stock PCV is a recipe for soot buildup. And of the two, a PCV reroute is much easier than an EGR delete.

^^^^^^ x2

I did a egr delete with just a egr tube delete and welding my up-pipe shut. Just didn't seem worth it to me for all the piping and y bridge just to delete the egr. I don't plan to get a s300 or s400 series turbo so I kept it as simple as possible.

My future an is similar to your with picking up a 3794 eventually!

Truck looks wicked clean!

I will be changing my y bridge and cold pipe with a sdp I have sitting here. I will be pulling the cold side pipe from my mpi twin kit if you want it. I will let it go pretty cheap. I'd imagine it should fit, someone else will correct me if I'm wrong
