Okay...

How in the hell do you get to the bolts holding on the EGR pipe under the intake? I can barely see the top one, much less try and get a tool in there to break them loose. Am I going to need a lift to get under there?

Also, do you just cap off the upper vacuum lines going to the EGR valve?

I did my blockoff plates back in December and the lower Port is a real bitch. I would first build a set of extensions until I felt it lock onto the bolt. Then attach the ratchet and do your best. It takes a while but it can be done. Just try to be patient.

you can just block either one and you are good. if you need to remove the EGR system then you need to block both ports. good luck.

I pulled the upper half of the manifold on my old car, alot easier. I lucked out on the car I have now, it was already done when I bought it.

I used an extension and a swivel, and it really wasn’t all that bad. As for the vacuum line I left the top part for the EGR system on, and caped that open vacuum lines. Hope this helps

I just took my intake manifold off when I did my fuel system and AEM, while the manifold was at the machine shop I had my welder weld shut the hole for the EGR. I had the plates but I thought it would be easy to do it that way also.
