nice write up, can't stress the tune enough though. It may take awhile to really do any damage but doing so will increase combustion temperature that the egr is designed to reduce at higher rpm.

what I'm saying is there is the chance to detonate because timing hasn't been compensated for the shortened burn time. So, tune it ;)
