where the egr meets the manifold make a new gasket for it but do not make the hole in the centre
i've done this to my t4 and had no problems with it

basically yes, make a template of you old gasket on some steel sheet ( about the thickness of the gasket) but without the main hole in it then bolt it back on again this will block off the egr . mine is a mechanical egr so i had no management light come on but some are electrical so still put the management light on
