    BUMP FOR STICKY (AGAIN)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm going through this process right now as I finally begin work to bring our blue '86 back to life. This is an invaluable piece of information and should be stickied for ALL to see!!!

    what would it involve to just delete the egr? would the valve need to be removed or just the tube from the back of the head? im in the middle of swapping an engine in mine and im trying to decide what to do with egr. i dont have to worry about emissions where im at.

    If you're gonna delete the EGR system, then you're better off removing it from the engine bay completely. You'd need to remove the EGR valve from the plenum and also the tube that runs to the EGR cooler on the back of the head. You'd also need to get some block-off plates to cover the holes on both the side if the plenum and the EGR cooler on the head. Oh, and don't forget to block off the vacuum ports on the throttle body!

    It's my opinion that the egr system is vital to a happy smog free earth. It eliminates nox. Unless you're a race car and can super tune it's my opinion the car will run better with it. That's just me and my programmed cali smog uti mind-control.
    Yes, it recirculates unburnable air, ie: dead space, however it lowers combustion temps and eliminates nox. As a kid I couldn't see the mountains next to me cuz of socal smog, now a days it's super clear.
    PLUS........... The system is designed to not recirculate at times you need the power, ie: half to full throttle.

    They do make block-offs for vacuum lines. Cheap enough & won't look tacky when plugging a vacuum port!
