Egr Tube!?

So talk about a project gone wrong. After installing my new exhaust headers back, having to modify, adjust, and get new parts welded on "bolt on" headers. I got the cel, egr flow. Oh guess what, the egr tube got bent shut! All of the tubes at my pullapart are cut or bent... Anyone know where I can get another tube?

i cant remember if thats aluminum (ive long since removed mine) but if its not, you could have a welder re-weld that end on worst case. could if its aluminum but its not worth the $$ to TIG it.

if i can find mine ill let you know and you can come pick it up. Im just up the street in Huntsville.

I believe the EGR tube is made out of brass or some compound thereof.

i tossed my old exhaust and everything related. junkyard or car-part.com time.

and rtk: if you arent throwing a code with no cats, your ECU, CEL light, or o2 sensors arent working correctly if you didnt run an o2 sensor delete/dummy/MIL+CEL elminator/etc.

^I get no cel with no cats, and I didn't do any of the stuff you mentioned

Oh and to the OP, I have a practically brand new OEM egr tube that I no longer am using on my car. They cost $50 from the dealer. I'll sell you mine for $35 if you want it.
