    i am installing a new motor in my 95 gt, trickflow stg 1 stuff, and i was wondering, has anyone deleted the EGR coming off the throttle body elbow
    leading down to the pass. header? i have a killer deal on some fox longtubes, and was thinking that the tube is the only thing that is
    standing in my way. thanks for any knowledge/advice

    do it.

    even if you have some sort of emissions testing the egr doesnt make THAT much of a difference

    I would say while you're at it you might as well. I would look into getting a tune after doing the new motor anyway. While you're at it, have them shut off the EGR function in the ECU.

    or just plug the hole that goes into the header and cap off the vaccum lines = no check engine light

    ryclef331- i was planning on it being dyno tuned after i did get it install, but i didnt think about them shutting off the EGR function. thanks
    I have seen some plates that bolt up to the elbow that look like it would cap it off on that end, and the fox headers dont have the tube,
    but is there any fitment issues with fox body longtubes on 94-95??

    yea i was also wondering about that....like is there any difference between fox and sn95 headers besides the egr application. Even for shorties...reason being is that i have no egr and if i could get away with fox headers i would totally do it...no mor eugly plug in the middle of the header :dancing6:
