blocking EGR ports on intake

I was wanting to fill the ports on the intake (intake to head surface) with some of that epoxy putty to keep the exhaust out of the intake all together. The epoxy is Quicksteal and says you can use it on blocks, intakes, and exhaust. Has anyone used this stuff or similar on a high heat area? More info-aluminum intake for a 2.8l v-6 ford,ports are 3/4 by 7/8 inch, cant use a block off on top for lack of mounting area.

block off plates

You can get restrictor and block off plates for the intake gasket. I would fabricate a plate to replace the EGR. I can't see a 1/8th" plate getting in your way.

A lot of times the Felpro gaskets come with a knockout that you can leave in. It will block the passage between the heads and intake.
