I have a question about the EGR blocker plate. I tried searching but got confused. My question is I have a EGR over ride circuit and EGR plate to install. Do I unplug EGR motor also or leave it alone? Also do I need to put anything on the blocker plate to get a good seal or just tighten it down good?

Thanks for clearing this up.

Yep unplug the egr along with the fingersticks and blocker plate. Some people had a problem with the plate sealing but I didn't have any problems. Make sure you put the plate on the correct side of the gasket. Might want to read over the diy section of this forum. Good luck!

DO NOT unplug the EGR. The fingerstick needs the EGR plugged in to work correctly. Most do not need help sealing the plate, although others have used high-temp copper gasket maker to get a good seal. I would go without and see how you do before messing around with sealers.

Okay so I put in plate nice and tight and add the finger stick to prevent codes. I will leave egr plugged in. Thanks for the help.

Here is a response Fingers (the developer of the FingersStick) posted to that question in an older thread:

Finger Stick needs a functional EGR valve to operate. That is, keep the EGR plugged in.

It's not critical, but try to get the plate on the cooler side (in front of) the gasket. Some have resorted to using a thin coat of high temp form-a-gasket to get a good seal, try it without first.

I used plate, it is throwing code, but not tripping light. Does this have any adverse affect? I believe mine is an fe9 code truck.

This morning I installed the EGR blocker kit from Kennedy Diesel on my 05' Duramax with only 19,000 miles on it. Took it out on a 200 miles round trip later today and I couldn't believe how HUGE difference it made on fuel mileage! My average mpg jumped from 15(before blocker kit) to 18.6 to 21.7 constantly with winter blend fuel so does that EGR blocker kit really made that big difference in mileage because I read other posts and seems to me that nobody has mentioned about mileage except for better throttle response? Am I lucky?
