I was wondering if I would have any problems with getting rid of my egr setup on my 83. I don't have to worry about emmissions being in canada, so that's no concern. Any cold weather problems? Anybody done this? how did you plug the mannifolds? Is there any other emmissions bs I can ditch? Any help would be appreciated. Thanx in advance

In case no one else replies - I don't have an answer for you, only this - when I asked about the EGR, as when I got my 79 the main tube running to/from it was missing, the answers were many and contradicting. Yes, it effects fuel consumption. No, it doesn't. Yes, it affects performance. No, it doesn't... I'm not complaining - ask for how to make ice and you'll get a million answers. Just proves we're all different.

Hopefully your asking may illicit a few more answers.

I took off the EGR after installing 6 in 1 header on my 78. It runs fine. you don't really have to plug the intake manifold since the EGR is diaphram valve that stays close except during deccelaration. I don't know about cold start because I'm in AL. It never get below 30's

Thanx dave, my next project is going to be finding some scraps of aluminum to get that patched. Did you pull the valve right off?? Did you just plug the vaccume line? What did you do to get the manifold blocked off (using a header)? Always a ton of questions from me...
