No way, to much money to just change the EGR. Buy yourself the Haynes manual and o it your self. Dont be lazy! It will be easier and you will learn. Sh!t, I did by my self the exploder swap in my 95 couagr without the knowledge, and 5 mechanics were I lived told me that it was not doable, so when I was done, I took the car to them and show them, they were like SOB's dont know nothing, that's why I do not let any mechanics touch my car anymore.!
