thoughts on deleting EGR

Unread post by PaulC-turbo5.0 »

I have my upper intake flipped so inlet is on driver side which now puts the ugly egr valve sticking out toward the front and its also making slight contact with my hood when closed. I am thinking of deleting it but when searching this topic on the google machine you can easily read threads for hours and get so many differing opinions.

should I delete it or no?

if so do I need to change anything in my tune? pretty sure the answer to this is no since I've ran it disconnected while logging my WB.

If I do delete it I will make a blockoff plate for the valve and buy a new phenolic spacer without the hole so the exhaust gasses wont come up into the intake anymore.

its up to you but you can also relocate it using some tubing and either a couple threaded fittings and a tap or cut out a piece of sheet metal you can bolt to it and weld the tubing to.

All entirely up to you. The engine will run the same with or without.

Nah no tune adjustments needed.
