thanks. I can NOT find the right damn pipe end cap to just screw onto the thing! I bought a 3/4 it was way to big, then I went to a 1/2" and it just BARELY wouldn't fit (too small) so wtf am I looking at a 13mm cap? do they even make em? LOL.

I'm VERY seriously this close to just grabbing one of the larger caps I got, filling the hell out of the thing with a jb weld mixture, and setting it together on the thing for the night. THAT'S gotta keep it shut, right?

I had the same header on my SPI for a while back in 2008. I also had a hard time finding a pipe cap for the egr. I believe the one i got was 5/8" but you have to remember that they make 2 different pipe caps, one thatís 5/8" inside diameter and one that is 5/8" outside diameter. I canít remember which one I used. I got it at home depot you can just buy both and return the one that doesnít work.

I had to have it modified and ended up being way more expensive than it should have been.

I have it sitting on a shelf. PM me if you want.it.
