I am looking at eliminating the EGR valve on my 92 LX. I have the lower intake off to get ported as I speak and am thinking about blocking the passage for the exhaust gas with the 1250 intake gaskets. I am taking the car to get tuned with an SCT chip and heard that you can turn off the EGR function in the PCM. I do not want any detonation at part throttle and want to make sure the PCM corrects this with the EGR function disabled. After the EGR function is disabled, do you still need to connect the egr valve position sensor or can I unplug it?? I don't want the check engine light coming on. I'm not against EGR valves, but I have coolant seeping from my throttle body spacer gaskets that smell and t-me off. I want to bypass the coolant hoses to the spacer and I don't want to do that without eliminating the EGR gasses. And between the EGR and coolant going thru the spacer, it is hot enough to burn my hand. I have no thermactor pump or converters and am not too concearned about gas mileage. I will be taking a longer road trip to St Louis for the WFC and don't want any highway cruising problems. And once the intake is back on, I don't want to pull it out to open the port back up if this don't work. Anyone with advice on EGR/PCM info, please respond. Thanks!!!
