Searched couldn't find much. I got my long tube headers today. Waiting on my ls1-fans harness and tune. The headers don't have egr provisions. I know they can delete the egr in the tune. Does anyone use/recommend a specific kit to block the egr valves on the motor? I was thinking I could just use a small piece of metal and rtv to seal it off. Will it hurt anything not having the egr. I don't have emissions or inspections where I live.

Thanks for the help

doesn't hurt anything, as for blocking it off with a piece of metal-idk.. someone else should be able to answer that.. they sell kits, but why pay for something you can make from spare parts

That was my thinking. We have all kinds of metal at work to make block off plates and the mechanics have rtv so cost would be $0 just labor.

Yeah I didn't see it either. I didn't see my over head console bracket on gmpartsdirect either but the dealership called some place that buys nos parts and they had the bracket so maybe I'll get lucky with the block off

I used a rubber freeze plug. Stick it in the intake manifold and tighten the nut up. Mine has been fine for 2 years. 1-1/4 plug

I went to Chevy today and they said it was discontinued. I ended up ordering an aluminum housing block off online after lunch. Im dropping the Pcm off Friday for the tune. Can I get the plug at Home Depot or something until the fancy one gets here?
