There were at least two EGR designs, depending upon age and market of the car, so bear that in mind. On mine (1989 T8S), the procedure was a simple case of removing the EGR box from under the intake manifold, removing the metal pipe that runs up to between cylinders 2 & 3 and closing off the port. I then ran a "loopback" vac tube over the two ports between cylinders 2 & 3 although I gather that might not be necessary. There is an EGR removal kit available from SAAB which consists of a plate and a bolt for just that purpose. Your system may differ. Paul 1989 900 Turbo S http://saab.go.dyndns.org/
