Ok , I eliminated the EGR and put a block off plate on my intake. There are the 2 coolant lines running into the EGR plate.

Can I just remove and plug them now that the exhaust gasses do not pass through anymore? Or do i need them to cool it?

It seems to me it would only heat it, but I have read different opinions, that the coolant was only there to help with cold starting, and others have said it is there to cool the EGR plate from the exhaust. I figured if the exhaust is blocked off it is producing much less heat up there anyways.

I need some input, these forums are such a great help. Thanks.

I just connected both of those lines with a small piece of copper pipe. Put some hose clamps on it.

Those coolant lines are to cool the EGR spacer.... not heat it up or prevent any cold starting issues. However, since the EGR is disabled, the spacer will not have any temperature related problems.... you can bypass them. If the EGR valve is functional though, the lines are required.
