i read some post bout egr cooler but in turns into "why would you wanna remove it" thread... anyways my egr is crack.... and imthinking of buying a block off plate... if i install a block off plate i dont need to put back the egr cooler right?
you are correct. In fact, it may be beneficial to remove it, as the extra exhaust gas sitting back there may elevate cylinder 6's temps by adding heat to the head in that area. Then again it may not. Better safe than sorry, though.
