Default EGR Block-off plates question

I keep seeing EGR block-off plate kits for sale but have a question: Aren't three plates required to complete the job?

  1. One plate for the exhaust port on the exhaust manifold.
  2. One plate for the exhaust port on the intake manifold.
  3. One plate for the EGR valve port in the intake manifold.

These kits only provide two plates. What am I misunderstanding about doing an EGR block-off???

If you have a LT-1 this should work.

One plate on the exhaust pipe and one plate where the EGR valve was is all you must have. The 3rd blank off is a dress up piece not really needed for function.

So you just leave the port on the intake manifold open?

Yes. That hole in the intake can be left open. It only connects the exhaust tube to the EGR valve. With the EGR blank-off installed nothing will leak. I cut out a small aluminum plate to cover mine but its not required.
