I cut them out of 1/4'' aluminum plate. Not worth the time and money to buy them.

I read somewhere that you need to delete the EGR function in your
PROM....I only skimmed it since I'm stuck with mine...

Here's a cheap way.Cut the flanges off the old pipe and reuse with a couple of coins. The EGR valve you can just block with an aluminum plate,easy enough to fabricate.

Zero without something to keep your combustion temps under 1200 degrees which is what EGR does. Get above that combustion temp and it forms NOX - ok - so you're not a tree hugger - but you can also get detonation. The ECM then pulls timing and you lose performance (and maybe a mile or two per gallon - kinda of important these days). At worst, you wear out what may be an allready worn out motor. Anyway, unless you want to swap out the cam for a little more overlap - or maybe figure out how the Brits used water injection to keep their Spitfires flying - I'd fix it; it isn't that difficult to figure out. And while you're out it, spend your money on a Scanner or a cable for your laptop, which along with some free software, will give you all you need to monitor how everything is doing.

What happens when the dime/nickel comes loose over time?

That is half @$$'ed in my book, but hey your car, not mine. So whatever floats ones boat I suppose.

I'd get the plates cleaner look/less chance of revisiting it later.
