Default Re: Disable EGR Valve?

I have blocked mine off. I personally do not think hot exhaust gas into th intake is a great idea. But, I have done motor work and have no cats. My truck bone stock got 20mpg. With everything that I have done to my truck it still gets a solid 17-18 hwy. I don't think the egr valve is going to make "that" much of a difference. Air/fuel is generally controlled by the o2 sensors.... isn't it....?

I cant vouch for any mpg/hp increase, but the 2" hole pumping hot exhaust gas into my intake had to go!
