I use that one quite a bit over the one without the magnet (ya, I have dropsey too. common ailment of diy'ers).
I'll probably try the magnet on a hose trick first before dishing out $100. I'll see if I can find the magnet with the light locally .

Worse comes to worse, I remove the manifold and replace it with one that can house the EGR valve. Win win?
