There is a hole in the side of the intake that the egr goes into. Go buy one of those adjustable rubber plugs, they have a screw that tightens and expands. Stick it in the intake with some rtv around the plug, tighten it up. Then it some high temp hose, and run it from the egr tube. stick a big bolt in the end and clamp it

stick a BB (yes like a bb gun) inside the EGR vacuum line (at the EGR) and press line back on EGR, the BB is to large to get sucked into engine and to large to fall into EGR.. and upon inspection every thing looks normal.

I assume you mean the hose on the top of the egr valve. But doesnt it still allow the hot exhaust gas into the intake...? or does the vaccum block close the valve....?

NO. Please see my response in your other thread about the same thing. You can't just go disabling and ripping out stuff. Everything works together to operate your engine. It isn't just emissions. Its how your engine works as a whole. Put down the wire cutters!
