The EGR valve normally closed anyway, it's closed at idle, and closed at full throttle. Would cause it to run hotter, with higher NOx's (what ever they are). I would suggest some afro-ingenuity.

wont pass smog

if you need smog inspections every 2 yrs or so. im unfortunately in
calif. just got my notice in the mail i need a smog inspection oh joy.
i think the stock z exhaust manifold pretty well designed and judging
from some of the aftermarket header complaints such as rusting hole, leaks, not legal, poor fit etc.. i think i will stick with bone stock

the previous poster was correct in saying the egr is hardly open anyways
your just putting out more smog is the worst it can do to it
