Well I changed my exhaust manifold and I I forgot to hook up my egr tube. So I tried and tried to put it in without having to take the manifolds apart. It's a very awkward place to try to put the bolts in so I figured I'd do a write up on a easier way to change it.

First thing you have to have to support the engine. Weather you use a jack or engine lift.

Then use the proper sized wrench to take the top nut off of the egr tube. I think it's a 3/4. You might find it really hard and If so try a little heat.

Next thing you have to get a 9/16 socket I believe and take the four bolts that hold the engine mount to the block off.

Then take the long bolt that goes through the motor mount off. I actually found it easier to take the 2 bolts off on the other end of the motor Mount off.

Now you have so much more room to work on the tube. It allows you to not only have room to work but see what your doing. And while the motor mounts off you should inspect it to see if it's shot and needs to be replaced.

Well I hope this helped someone.

That stupid tube took 4 hours of my life away trying to get those top bolts back in.
