Well, back in the day the EGR ran under the carbureted intakes and you could gain some HP by removing the EGR and blocking off the channel, thus promoting cooler denser air flow in the intake.


That thinking has carried through, but recent research has shown that there is actually very little if any benefits to be gained from removing it.
The EGR valve closes off under WOT so the flow of the heated gases is temporarily stopped anyways, right when you need it to be stopped the most.


The only other reason to remove it is because the EGR system components have been removed or damaged and it is no longer able to do its job anyways. Racers will remove it to save weight and reduce the under hood complexity.

Is there a particular way you should remove it or do you just take it off. The reason behind it is because I bought all my stuff. Intake. TB. CAI. MAF. Underdrive pullies. And distributor and realized I didn't get a EGR plate. And was wondering if I even needed one. Now there only $75 compared to what I just spent but on ther other have it is $75 and if I have to buy some kinda delete kit that's gonna cost $25-$50 I might as well get the egr plate

My next question is I have a 75mm BBK TB should I go with a BBK 75mm egr or can I go with and different brand 75 mm egr plate

That's what I did and it seals up the EGR

You will likely get a CEL light from the ECU.
You can buy (eBay) or fabricate and install an EGR Eliminator to turn off the light.

Any brand 75MM EGR plate will work if you decide to keep it.

The diagram is easy.
You just solder the resistors together as shown and run wires from them to the EGR connector terminals as shown.
