EGR Question

Hello,

I am getting ready to perform a full egr cooler delete from First Coast. I ordered my modified manifold with the EGR valve orifice left open "unwelded". I plan to reinstall my EGR valve and plug it in to retain the stock appearance.

My questions:

I originally planned to weld the EGR valve shut to avoid any possible opening under WOT as I've read some do. Since I am completeley removing the up-pipe that feeds the valve and installing a blocked off up-pipe, is welding it necessary?

Is there a way that the smog guys can "test" if the valve is functioning during the smog test and know that it is welded, if indeed welding it is the way I go?

Thanks

Are you running a SCT with a custom tune?

Nope, according to FCDP I don't need to. I have an '04 and they said @ most I would get a CEL, but nothing else...like loss of power etc.

Tucson Stroker,

Before you start your nonsense on a forum about stuff I have posted, you should find out the facts and premise behind my post. Stupid A$$.

Awesome. If I am not mistaken, there will be no exhaust flow to the valve after the new modified up-pipe has been installed...sound correct Adam?

Thank you for your time

You are correct, on my intake (the one you have/will have today) I had the EGR valve installed and not welded with no problems..
