I have a hotshot header that is missing the EGR blockplate, and rather than fabbing one up, I wanted to see if anyone's got one laying around they can part with. Let me know!

How thick of a meterial do you use, Proteus? I couldn't find anything I thought I could use for it, so I chose a rather thin material. It's a little less than 5mm thick.

i've got access to any thickness between 14 gauge and 1 inch thick. I would generally make them out've 3/8"

Here are some freshly made ones... 304 stainless, deburred and quickly polished (80 grit)

I just measured and it was 1/8. Is that too thin? ;) How can I have you make me one?

I don't think it leaks. But, from the heat, I assume it'd bend a bit sooner than one made from a thicker material. I guess I'm fine for now. I'm not sure what your process is for making them (easier if you make multiple at the same time? Doesn't matter?), but if you happen to make one for someone in the future, I'll buy one from ya!
