So I’ve googled my butt off and can’t find this answer. My car has cat delete, and the rear o2’s are just in the x-pipe plugging the holes. Does that mean the egr is turned off in the tune? I bought the car this way and was told it has an sct tune from the 2nd owner who didn’t put the tune on the car. I’m changing header gaskets and am thinking of deleting the egr. Any insight would be appreciated!

The EGR has nothing to do with your exhaust AFTER your headers. The headers (usually divers-side) has a small tube that splits off for the EGR. Dont delete your EGR, you aren't ANYWHERE near modified enough for it to be beneficial

Thanks for the reply nightfire. I couldn’t find an exhaust leak and after pulling headers off noticed one of the welds blew out at the flange. I didn’t want to fight with hooking egr back up if not necessary. Even with a supercharger it’s not beneficial? I’m running a vortech v3 non intercooled.
