Plugging EGR on JBA Headers.

I have a set of JBA Headers coming they are for some other year ranger that has EGR on the passenger side. I need to plug this hole, anyone know the thread size? Or can I just weld it shut.

thanks!

goto a parts store, they should have "bung plugs".
lol yes, thats what they are called i think..

hardware stores should have something too, idk tho, they will most likely be steel.

you could always find a short bolt that will fit in it if that fails.

Mine was. I just bought a *heavy wall* brass end cap / plug for a regular garden hose at home depot. Worked fine.

unscrew your egr fitting on the factory manifolds(if you have egr) if not, i say jus get it welded up, chances are once they are on, you wont want to take them off ha
