Slight effect on fuel mileage. Easiest way is to unplug it. Your cel will come on but with a tuner you can turn a egr off.

But if it reburns emissions and helps cool the combustion, wouldnt deleting the egr valve be a bad thing kinda?

It doesn't cool the combustion chamber. Cold air from out side is far more cooler than hot exhaust gasses. It was designed to reduce emissions by cycling in inert gas to reduce fuel and air intake. It also dirties up the intake and raises the temperature of the intake.

So the v6 maxs at 350hp huh? Nevermind then, forget the cams and everything else I had planned. Guess I will start saving money for a v8 motor, tranny, and rear end swap. Yay My fun just got shot to hell. Had high hopes for a sleeper v6 but.if.i cant even play with a honda civic, lol, then why waste the time, effort, and money.
