Re: Egr removal?

you won't even have poor mpg from it...you'll throw a code so if you can't kill the code with a tune you'll not be able to pass emissions. just get an EGR block plate and take it off..and plug of the vaccum hose at the other end

Re: Egr removal?

They took mine off when I had it tuned, the only issues you might see is the check engine like come on for a few codes. The only way you can fix that is bring it near a place that tunes them and ask them to cut it off in the computer. Far as running issues I never say a problem.

Haha ok guys. I am suspecting a bad egr valve on an issue I'm having where the car skips when it's heated up, but I don't want to replace the valve in case it's not the issue. I happen to be replacing the clutch right now so I'm under the car to do it right. (cap off the port on the manifold)

Thanks rapid typers!

well the only thing I can tell ya on that is go ahead and cap it off....because if you disconnect it and see how the car acts. If you have a tuner you can run it by a place and have them turn it off in the tune and load it on the tuner and retune the car.
