The 2.7's EGR valve replacements are/can be such a pain in the ass to do with where they are located compared to the 5.7's! I had to replace my EGR valve 3 times within a few months time on my 2.7 Chrysler 300, the last time the clip on the plug broke, so I had to buy a replacement plug and re-pin everything.

Lol, I'm sure we shared plenty of the same curse words over EGR's....I had to replace mine during the winter here in Nebraska....I don't have a garage...so, cold hands, low tolerance for anything to go wrong, and tight/hard to access area makes for a lovely time :p
