I just made one of these for myself today and I was wondering if anyone else had an interest in one? If so, I could have some nicer looking ones made (im more concerned about function over looks) and sell the for a reasonable price on here.

Just remove the vaccum line and plug the holes.
then you'd have useless hardware in your engine bay... by using his blockoff plate you free up some room in there. i saw it yesterday, it looks clean as hell! :thumbup:

As long as you plug the lines, there will be no code.
Plugging the lines is free ;)
Also getting back to stock for emmision test is fast.

Nah, nbo real performance gains other than slightly cooler engine temps from having not exhaust recirculated.

Hmmm EGR is suppose to reduce engine and exhaust temp when working. Not the other way around. Without EGR you'll get a cleaner manifold.

Well no matter what you are going to see gains....not noticable gains though because you a pretty much pluging something that leaks out of you intake

You need a standalone ;) I have none of the spidered vacuum hoses that clogs up the engine bay :)
