  • EGR question

    Hello all,
    I am a long-time reader, but first time poster with an EGR question. I have a '79 CJ7 with the 258, Weber carb and Borla header and cat-back. The vehicle is emmissions exempt and I was wondering what problems will arise by deleting the EGR valve? If it is very necessary, does anybody know how to integrate it into a header? Thanks in advance.

    Mostly fuel savings for a DD.
    And to help with emissions.

        If you don't need it for emissions get rid of it, and if I remember correctly the Weber shouldn't need it for the '79. I don't use mine for the '77 - buy a plate at your local speed shop & block it off. I used a gasket from Napa since they had higher ones that were higher quality than what came w/ the plate kit.
        However it is a part I keep around - just mainly to go with the truck when I sell it.

            thanks

            Thanks to all for the advice. It really helped ease my mind. To Ratman, I live in northeastern Ohio where a vehicle is exempt after 25 years.

                on my brothers 304 we cut the housing that had the diaphragm in it off, and welded the two small holes in the top of the cast piece shut. This I would have to say is the cheapest way humanly possible.
