    there is a port on the back of the head, and on the back of the intake. youll need to block those off if you remove the egr. and underneath the intake are some vacuum lines that will need to be rerouted.

    Unless you're no longer on the stock ECU (or you switch to a JDM ECU), keep the EGR...

    Definitely keep it, the USDM ECU is tuned for all that, and (I THINK) JetJock or Jdub did a test, and showed EGR actually cooled down the temps quite a bit, so it's up to you..

    When you remove egr you get....

    More detonation
    Lower gas mileage
    hotter egt's

    The EGR valves robs no power whatsoever. It Burns extra unburned fuel and reduces Nox emmissions. Its only open when cruising and its an inert gas so it has no effect on combustion other than absorbing heat from the air/ fuel mixture giving you more power.

    Poodles - this is someone from the UK. We don't run on piss-water fuel in the UK - minimum you can get is 95 RON. Our cars are NOT US-spec ECU's. Early cars here didn't have EGR at all. We also require no charcoal canister. Please, before you post up in a thread what can and can't be done, at least LOOK at WHERE the user is.

    To the OP - tear out the EGR to your hearts content. You will have no ill effects from doing so. I'm doing it on mine, and some of the big-power guys in the UK have also removed it. None of them have reported any problems. All the EGR ever did in my car, was clog the cold start injector with crap.

    In addition, EGR is not a requirement to pass the emissions in the UK (two speed idle test), and with EGR completely removed, and a de-cat downpipe, you're WELL UNDER the permitted emissions for even the 1992 regulations. Yes, you end up with marginally hotter EGT's. No you don't lose mileage. You won't have any more or less detonation than you have at the moment.
