Felix now you have got my curiosity, maybe I should just remove the egr because Ive read Tom will delete it in the tune anyways. Ill wait until it's tuned- any pros or cons other than cleaning up engine bay?

No burnt exhaust gases into the cylinders + after awhile you'll find the t/b getting stick & have to clean it out w/ carb cleaner/tb cleaner, at least on the cable operated ones. I'd also delete the rear 02 sensor also.

Okay well that sounds good to me, not sure about the rear o2 I have the obx header so I forget if I run one or two.

If i recall correctly, an aftermarket header wont have provisions for the erg and blocks it off anyways and the tune from Tom shutting it off from the ecu side, i dont think you actually need to buy the egr delete kit. Ask Tom his opinion on that before spending more money...i may wrong but wont hurt to ask

Thanks I will definitely do that, I LIKE saving money. Also does any company sell a cheap tb spacer for the duratec? The throttle is hitting the intake at wot. I didn't see people having this issue but it is a stock tb.

Stephen you mean the rear 02 sensor.......not the egr. Your there, delete the egr & by pass the coolant passage for the egr & install a plate.

Made another bung on the header for the wideband. Should be able to read well enough i hope. Also learned that i had to turn the iac upside down but the throttle will still hut the iac bolt heads and i think even if i shave them down. Any suggestions? About to make my own spacer
