I checked the manual and it does look like you at least have to remove the air flow sensor from the intake manifold since the pipe that goes from the EGR valve to the throttle body is one piece. The pictures aren't very descriptive so it's possible that you even have to separate the top and bottom pieces of the intake manifold.
It might be easier to cut and cap the pipe somewhere behind the cylinder head.
