Dump the EGR in a turbo'd car it doesn't help feeding hot exhaust gas back in to the inlet. You'll need to make a plate up to bolt over the hole in the inlet manifold and plug the hole in the exhaust manifold with a bolt. Then cap the vacuum line from the TB to the valve on the inlet manifold between 3&4. Job done. Worth about 2bhp at 3200rpm on mine and it 'feels' a lot better throughout the rev range. > > > > I asked about emissions probs, and they said "Will probably pass > > > easier". > > > BTW, as your is pre-92, it doesn't need a cat, and has to only reach > > > 3.5% CO and 1200ppm Hydrocarbons to pass.
