91 f 150 5.0 egr tube removal

I have a 91 f 150 5.0 . I have a egr eliminator and eliminator plate over the intake manifold. im trying to remove the egr tube and plug the ther end of it. i assumed that the tube went into the exhaust manifold but I dont see it anywhere. where does the other end of the tube go? any feedback appreciated.

It goes to the center of the lower intake and the upper portion has to come off to get to it.

Yes, upper intake or "plenum" has to come off to get to it. The pipe on mine was rusted out and the valve was shot, I did the eliminator too... Just bent the pipe back on itself and crimped to seal.

took it in for inspection thinking pep-boys mechanics wouldn't look too closley as long as I passed the dyno. WRONG. passed the dyno sniffer fine but failed and got a speech about how my emissions system has been tampered with.

So now I get to either replace it all or make it look like the old valve is doing it's job.

As a temporary solution I've always been able to cut a beer can in the same shape as the EGR gasket (minus the large hole in the center) to block off the EGR flow. Never leaked or anything. And because the vacuum lines were still hooked up it didn't trigger a CEL or anything.
