I installed headers on my 280z, but I have a question. What do people about the exhaust gas recirculator? I think that is what it is called. Anyway it is the emissions part that was connected to the exhaust manifold.

well you can block off the whole deal with a plate or get fancy and weld a threaded bung
on the collector and make up a stainless steel tube with flare
fittings to make the system operational again. maybe somebody makes a kit for this,
wouldn't know,I blocked mine off.

I HAD THE SAME QUESTION AND FINALLY DECIDED TO JUST BLOCK IT OFF WHICH I DID. I CUT THE TUBE AND REPLACED THE STAINLESS TUBE WITH A LENGTH OF FLARED COPPER TUBING. I PINCHED OFF THE END OF THE COPPER TUBE AND SOLDERED IT TO MAKE IT SEAL. THATS IT. HOPE THIS HELPS. WORKED GREAT FOR ME.

I'm a little late into the conversation but I went to Ace hardware and got a replacement brass cap and a plug. It fit perfectly. I took the tube down there with me and it turns out that the cap and plug weren't metric. Didn't need to solder anything.

Steve, I had always wondered if there was a plug from an auto parts or hardware store that would fit that stupid thing. I have cut myself several times on the PO's poor job of soldering. Thanks, BTW how's the valve nightmare going?
