Default After EGR Removal...

besides caping the stove pipe opening did anyone try to close the hole in the UIM behind the TB??? would it make a difference if it was closed off somehow?

You don't want a vacuum leak. That'* what it boils down to.

Do keep in mind that the EGR serves a very important service. It keeps combustion temps DOWN. KR can be the result of removing it, as well as burnt valves.

The very few cars that delete the EGR put other things in place to combat the issues.

If you want to delete the EGR system, you'll either need a "spoof" sensor to trick the computer or custom PCM programming. Otherwise you'll constantly have the check engine light illuminated.

Leave the EGR attached to it and operational. That'* my humble opinion, but the choice is yours.

You'll need a blank-off plate for the LIM if you don't want a vacuum leak.

Just get a 1 X 2" piece of aluminum, drill a hole in it, and bolt it to cover the hole in the LIM. I put some RTV around it to make sure it sealed as well.

ZZP also sells a block off plate but IIRC its like $5 and you can make your own for a lot less than that.

Hope that helps.
