I would say if you don't want to find the correct intake manifold that fits, and you don't have to have this emission inspected, just block off the egr.

??? california requires emisions bad!! how can i block the egr?
Expert:  Mike S. replied 7 months ago.
Forget it, you will fail emissions if any part of the emission is missing.I would suggest finding the correct intake manifold that fits. have you looked for one?
