Default EGR valve location on an 09 2.3l??

I am wanting to block it off like I did on my 95 F-150 for more power & better MPG.

On my 95 the EGR valve was located on the top side rear of the engine. I have looked high & low on the 09 & can't seem to spot it.
Any help would be great!!

located at the right rear corner of the intake manifold near the firewall

Little round deal with what looks like a spark plug wire coming off the center

I think if you do that u will get a CEL coming on

If it throws a CEL I guess that will be my excuse to buy a tuner

No, they can turn off the sensor that is tripping the CEL.

Like on my mustang they turned off the 2 rear O2 sensors so I can run without the cats.

You tell them the code it's throwing & they email you a new tune to correct it.

I googled Added benefits to blocking EGR valve there are several different car forums where people have done it. Kinda mixed reviews on if it works or not

I had a noticeable power gain when I did the 4.9. It felt more responsive afterwards. Did your dad notice any improvement with the driveability??
