Did my sdp egr delete. And where it bolts down to the thermostat the bolt was stripped. And worked its way out and my intake bridge popped out. Would the best way be to retap the hole and put a new bolt in it? And how hard is it to pull the bridge apart and fix the o-ring and put it all back together?

it's some work but manageable

I used a few long handle pry bars to pop mine out to work on it.

I'm gonna give it a try tomorrow! What's the best way about redoing the hole? Just drill and tap it to a different size?

Did you use the stud and nut that we include? We include it so that you use all of the threads and no worries about stripping the threads out. Let me know if you need a thermostat housing, I believe we have some used ones here.

I did the same thing, do I need to put a new o ring on it? Looks like there's 2 o rings down there
