Egr block plate

Can anyone post a link or tell me where I can get a egr block plate kit with the bolt that screws into the exhaust manifold? My egr Tube broke and itís been imposible to find one where Iím at. I have a Ve30de in my car. TIA

I don't think one was ever made for 3rd gens. Though I could be wrong. Could you not fabricate one with some sheet metal and find a bolt to block the other end?

likely custom made, you can probably just get a small sheet of metal from home depot and use an angle grinder to cut out the shape then drill 2 holes for the bolts

I found that the end plate for the cams requires little cutting to fit perfectly. Just use the little egr gasket to mark your lines. Worked perfectly on my turbo. The metal is plenty thick. You should use at least something 3mm thick in aluminum if you have that handy.

It's not that Complicated,use construction paper or cardboard as a template....if you wanna go with the block off plate...I actually plug my EGR signal line so it never opens, but then I'm not dealing with boost that maybe able to creep the ball off it's seat! When someone inspects under my hood during emission testing it virtually looks OEM!

it's a weird metric pipe thread. what you can do is cut the tube. take that "bolt" the tube ran into and have someone weld a blank plate over the top of it and then screw it back in and you should be ok.

Unscrew the tube, insert a coin (nickel), reattach tube or at least the threaded part.

Or if you have a Nissan exhaust manifold laying around, check to see if it has a reducing bushing for an O2 sensor. They used the bushing on many different cars and it's the same size as the EGR bung. Unscrew it and plug it with a nickel, old O2 sensor or an easier to find bolt.
