What did you use to block the hole that's left after you remove the assembly? Size, type of material, etc.?

I merely made a gasket for the opening, using the base of the EGR as a template. Then, cut a metal piece (using the same template) that just uses the EGR bolt holes (and bolts) to hold it (the metal piece), and the gasket down tight.

You can also use the base of the EGR, and the aforementioned gasket, to effectively block off the hole. The gasket must be thick and leak-free, to help hold vacuum.

Worked for me...

DONT LAUGH EITHER ,
I took off the BPT and plugged up the vacuum hoses with extra torx bits from my screw driver set. I do it right one day.

a piece of 1/8" thick aluminum about 2" wide and 5" long then use the base of egr and trace it with a scriber then cut file center punch holes for bolts buy new egr gasket and use permatex. very light coaton the gasket.done. I polished my egr hole cover before putting it on. Me likey shiny things.

you need shorter bolts cause the plate is thinner than the egr base.

Would a 96 SE-R benefit from removing the EGR? Has anybody done this in their 96?

I'm not sure theres any performance benefit, per se from removing the EGR. I have two reasons removing it and the PAIR valve.

1. Less engine compartment clutter.

2. Without the EGR I do not have to worry about any performance loss or driveability issues like poor idle. I'm having my JWT ECU specifically programmed to eliminate both the EGR and PAIR valve. Basically, they will put a 94' program in my 93' to eliminate the PAIR. As far as EGR I'm not sure what JWT does but I would guess it some how eliminates the EGR "code" so I won't get a "check engine light"

Nope... No benefits. Removing the EGR would just make your car spew out more NOx emissions... A big no-no since you're in California. If you're having idle problems, and you suspect the EGR, then clean it out with some throttle body cleaner.
