I give trying to use the freeze plugs. I have lost one and finally after hammering the 2nd plug flew back and hit me in the eye...well in my glasses. I'm through with that. I saw @Spook50 and some others had nifty block off plates. I have looked but outside of buying a whole kit from Lerms I can't find a plate. Is this something I am going to have to try and fabricate out of aluminum or something?

I had mine cut from 1/8" stainless (didn't have ANY resources to do my own metal work at that point) and drilled to match the EGR/intake manifold gasket. When I did my desmog there were no kits of any kind for sale (am I a trend setter? LOL) so I had to improvise.

If the EGR valve doesn't bother you where it is, just leave it there. It's not doing anything when it's not hooked up. Removing it is only for de cluttering
