If you saved your 96 Intake manifold you *might* be able to tap into the exhaust pipe to get the EGR pipes refitted to your non-EGR engine.
In other words - tap into the exhaust - attach EGR pipes - which attach to your 1996 Intake manifold - which bolts right up and plugs right in (just like it used to).
But it's going to take some custom pipe work (not that big of a deal with the right tools and equipment - simple actually - but troublesome for most at home mechanics).
Good luck this is just one daunting issue to deal with.
I think you're saying retained the automatic? If you had the manual trans then you can get around it, but not with the auto.

i doubt it's just a plug, it's probably a boss - an area intended to be drilled and tapped for those engines requiring EGR. in other words the foundry doesn't make "EGR heads" and "Non EGR heads" - they just make one head which gets machined appropriately after the foundry creates them. so yes - the heads are identical and one can be "turned into" another.
my guess is it's drilling and tapping though, not just removing a plug. i've never seen any with just a plug, it's always been untouched metal. but if youre lucky and have a plug - post a picture that would be awesome.

the EGR pipe fits on the rear of the engine, not the bottom of the engine where you're taking pictures. like i said - there should not be a plug there, it's not going to be that easy unless you're really lucky.

If you have the old intake like you said - you should be able to look at that pipe right? Or do you not have that pipe any more?
If you still have the old engine you could theoretically swap heads on that one side to install a head with an EGR port.
You could possibly drill/tap it out with a right angle drill or right angle drill attachment. I've used those before to do drilling/tapping on the front of the engine, so it can e done on the rear too. Be nice to have an EGR equipped head to look at though and get right.
Otherwise looks like there should be plenty of room to work with back there.
