i'll recheck the egr pipe.
When my motor final quit working, I got real lucky and found a wrecked 07 buick Lucerne with less then 6k miles in a local junk yard. They sold me the engine with everything on it except the belt system. I paid 600.00 for it. So when I installed the motor I used about 90% of the parts from the lucerne. I had reused my metal upper intake, my matched flow injectors, fuel rail and regulator, also my throttle body with sensors. I had to use my rear exhaust manifold, but that'* it the rest is from the 07. I/ll go grab a used throttle body today and try it out this weekend. I'll let you all know. And thank u for all the help.
