Well I first blocked the one on the manifold . Then it was still blowing through the crack from the other side, so we blocked the other end of pipe, all good and no problems, so do I have to block anything else off ?? So basically the pipe is now void .. And I used stainless . Easy job but had to sit on engine and on my stomach lol bolts were bloody tight.

Yeah, the exhaust side bolts are bloody hard to remove with years of rust and heat, and basically end up being welded to the exhaust manifold.

Check for any vacuum hoses that go into the EGR valve and block them accordingly, 'cos the EGR serves no purpose once both ends of the EGR pipes are blocked.
