EGR help

I heard that instead of installing an EGR bypass setup, one can simply disconnect the plug going into the selinoid. I did and the engine light goes on after 50miles. Is there any benefit to this or is there any damage cause by disconnecting the selinoid wires?

Just plug it back in and don't waste your time with that unless you're having symptoms that are characteristic of egr valve issues. To answer your first question, that is not how it works. I wish! lol

Try out the search feature, you will come up with all kinds of great info on the egr. In the tech files there is even a write up on how to delete it.

unplugging it is a waste of time , nothing good comes out of it but a check engine light , unless you are experiencing a problem , leave it alone

I purchased a sct xcal2 and was wondering how to turn off the egr. I have read in some posts that this is possible.
