I have my truck pulled apart per 6-gun-Todd’s DIY. I can't even see where this plate goes on LMM. I think I know where it is but, I can't see it and if I can't see it how the fuck am I suppose to get to it. Any help would be greatly appreciated, if it is up against the firewall then, I'm really not sure how to get to it.

If you lay on the motor with the elbow off find the egt cooler and the two bolts are slated / top of eash line you really cant see much but its there you can get a ratchet behind and take the two bolts out.

brian those back 2 nuts can be a son of a b*tch sometimes, shoot them with wd 40 or pd blaster and let them sit for a second, then get a big flat screw driver and pry the up pipe toward the firewall, just be careful of the gasket in there, then slip the blocker plate in there over the studs and tighten the nuts, its a pita to see whats goin but you can get it done

I lost tools tore some shit up and decided to get drunk!!! I was suppose to be traveling home this weekend.

Jimmy you are probably too young but, bob wills or Asleep at the wheel is good stuff. Merle Haggard, George Strait, Dwight Yoakum, Lyle Lovett, Dixie chicks, Tracey Byrd all plays a lot of western swing. Younger guy listen to, too much hip hop.

I am going to try it soon. I finally figured out where it is today while changing the fuel filter. When I pulled the intake elbow off it became very clear, not very easy but very clear, where it is.

Anybody, know if there is a way to unplug the egr to keep the egr from opening. I just want to do this until I can attack the egr plate properly.

whats stopping you can you not get the two small bolts out? I would say its a good time to purchase EFI live so you can disable it :D although it will blow open with enough boost

I am on the road, and just don't have the right tools to do this properly. I bought a 3/8 flex head ratchet but, couldn't get it back there. I may just have to bite to bullet and get efllive and better plan the blocker plate. There were hoses and the dipstick for the tranny all in my way!

Thanks
