Default EGR blocker plate vs delete kit

Can some one please learn me some knowledge. I understand the main difference between the two but aside from the MAJOR price difference what would be the difference and why would one want/need to buy the delete kit over spending $50 on a block plate? Maybe this is a dumb question so feel free to flame the tail feathers but I can't see spending the money for the kit to delete it if blocking it off basically does the same thing.

From what I can tell, the block off plates uses your existing piping, the delete kit replaces your up pipe, Advantage, I'm assuming it's more free flowing.

Most EGR delete kits include a new higher flowing pipe to go from the intake bridge neck to the intercooler pipe. It also removes the EGR cooler tank to clean up under the hood a little. For what you're doing, a blocker plate will be fine unless you just want to unclutter under the hood.

Uncluttered would be nice but wow that's a big price jump. Prob just go with a plate for now since I got a line on one. Then if I need room later I'll tackle that issue then. Thanks for the explanation.

Another option is to use a lb7 intake y-pipe. You can build a block off plate for the up-pipe. I would also keep all of your parts just incase you end up somewhere that IM's. I might be building a newer high flow 3" bridge. I would have the bridge below and the LB7 intercooler pipe to go with it.

$50 for a block plate is way overpriced, unless there is something much more special then the one I dropped in the LMM. I got one from ATP for either $10 or $18, I can't remember which.
I'm sure eventually I will do EGR delete and PCV reroute, but like you, the plate is a ton cheaper and gets the job done just fine so I went that route.
