excellent excellent write up.... i want to try this on my 96 corolla... should be almost the same procedure....that bad boy have 188,000 miles on it and still going great.
Honestly, I'm surprised it hasn't already been stickied since you wrote it at the beginning of this year!!!Thanks!
I would be honored if sticky happens. :naughty:
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!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.
They do make block-offs for vacuum lines. Cheap enough & won't look tacky when plugging a vacuum port!interesting. where would i get some block off plates? ive decided to just do away with it. im just about the complete opposite of DRIFTING and dont care about a little extra smog lol. i was thinking for the vacuum lines just put a little peice of hose on then a golf tee in the end?
