I live in Cali, so I tack welded my EGR valve closed, reinstalled it, plugged in a new EGR valve and ziptied it in the engine valley. No EGR gas circulation
Cheap, easy, and simple to reverse.
So every 2 years for testing, I just pop out the old welded one and put in the plugged in newer one.
Yes I do have a check engine light
Yes my fan works just as it did before
Yes it helped with throttle response (less lag, quicker spool up)
