i just got my shorty headers in yesterday and i am in the process of installing them...but when i looked at my manifolds then look at the headers....the headers on the drivers side has a extra pipe (prob for egr) and my manifold does not....and i am wondering if it would be ok or wise to weld a cap on it....or should i put my car on hold and wait another 2 weeks to get new ones??? i cant take pics right now but i can tomarrow and post them up

i think i know what you are talking about, and it is not the egr, is it on the pipe for the # 4 cylinder

I wouldn't delete it since it tampers with emissions laws well at least here where I'm at but if you could, you'd have to get a delete kit if you're not going to weld on it. it should be a plate/plug (not familiar with '98 exhaust setup) that covers it up nicely.

no you just need a bolt to go over them and cover it. mine were the same way

and you have your cylinder #'s mixed up #1 is pass side and #4 is driver side

you wont find an EGR delete plate at lowes;)
i thought he was talking about the same thing that i was talking about...srry...it was a miss understanding...but you can find 3 bolts to go over the tubes....and my stock exhaust manifolds do not have those tubes.....so i can just block them off
