EGR help

Okay I've researched for ever I've found tons of threads about it but none of them actually tell you what to remove and how to go about doing it..

I was going to wait to do this until I did my header install but I'm getting impatient so I'm gonna do it now..

I understand how to take the tube off the manifold and screw on the cap and do the plate on the plenum..

My questions are what vacuum lines, sensors, wiring, and other EGR stuff can I delete along with the valve and how do I do that? I know some vacuum lines with really screw things up if they aren't hooked up so I don't wanna grab the wrong stuff.. Once I get this info I'm gonna do a really in depth write up, to save future headaches for people

Yep, I'm not putting any of that **** back in my car when the new engine goes in. I swear to god I'm going to get moving on that car this weekend... Seeing way too many nice stangs on the road is driving me nuts.


Just make sure when you do that you have the EGR shut off in the tune.

Recommend deleting the PCV also but that's just me. The less vac lines and pointless **** in the engine bay the better.

How do you delete pcv? I won't be able to get a tune for at least a month so would the pcv delete require an immediate tune? I've seen people put the breather filters on the valve covers I'm assuming that is part of it? Anything that I can delete that is unnecessary I want to do lol

The PCV is ventilation for the crank case. So when you delete the lines running from crank case to the intake you still need some way to ventilate it. Some people put breathers right on the valve covers. Others will run an external breather/catcher. But that will require new lines.

Any driving issues if you delete that hose? I'm assuming it's the one that runs from the drivers valve cover to the intake tube and have the black box in the middle

I looked all around and can't find a thread with pics that actually shows what gets deleted and where I'm not even sure what all hoses I can and cannot delete

I'm gonna leave the pcv alone right now and worry about finishing this EGR delete.. I've got the tube off of the manifold and no as far as all of the crap up top..

But what do I need to do with the green vacuum line off the top of itClick image for larger version

ID:	185762 this sensor is either the dpfe or EGR so what do I need to do with it, and I remove that entire bracket and just unhook and hide those sensors?

Got this sensor of the u shaped bracket I think this is the dpfe correct me if I'm wrong. The green vac line was on top of the EGR valve and goes to this and the red line that comes off of this sensor goes to a coupler in front of the tb

Also with this sensor from what I've read on the thread soccer posted most people are cutting the vac lines and putting a screw in the hole since they are the EGR related and DPFE so instead of the screw can I put those vacuum line caps on there?Click image for larger version

I deleted the EGR valve, the green vac line that was on top of it, the EGR solenoid and 2vac lines that come off of it red and the other end of the green one, the DPFE sensor and the two hoses that go to the EGR tube.

Right in front of the Tb is a few Y couplers for the vac lines.. I pulled them all off.. Click image for larger version

There was two Y couplers before and 3 diff lines.. What I did was remove the Y couplers, the only one I left was the one that went directly to the TB, the two red lines that go into that coupler is the one on the right from the FPS and the left one goes back to the passenger valve cover but it's hidden.. Rerouting the lines this way really cleans it all up.

Engine is a little dirty but here is the finished product Click image for larger version

I'll clean it up really good tomorrow and post some better detailed pics of everything..

Can some one chime in on putting the breather on the drivers side valve cover? And deleting the PCV stuff.

Good job. Sorry I wasn't much help besides that link lol. I've been thinking of doing it myself also. Never been good at this type of stuff.

It was really easy I wouldn't have asked for help if it didn't involve the vac lines cause I know some of those can be detrimental to the driving.. But it's super simple I'm gonna post a good how to in the next day or so
