Default problems with equal length header install

During installing my headers, i noticed this hole with no apparent use and I have nothing to plug it with.

Can someone please tell me what this is!
Thank you!

Shouldn't a 1100 dollar header come with a 25 cent plug incase I don't want to monitor egt. I'm going on record as NOT recommending this header, go with killer bee or perrin instead. I should not have this stupid issue spending this kind of money.

I'm pretty sure most el headers come with an EGT bung. Mine did.

Its an invidia equal length "race" one piece header. It was also missing one stud to mount to the turbo which I had to pull from the stock up pipe.

If your missing parts, should call the company you got it from and let them know your header did not come with everything. I'm sure you can maybe go to a hardware store to find a bolt to plug the bung.
