EGR and edelbrock non egr carb...problem?

i have an 84 chevy k10, 350, short bed, 4x4. Im looking to put on a new carb and intake manifold but i dont really know what the best bet is. I have an EGR valve on my truck but i also have acquired an edelbrock performer 600 #1406 which is a non egr model. is there any way to make this work together or would one or the other have to go? if the EGR goes what would need to be blocked off to seal vacuum? my truck is smog exempt where i live so it wouldnt be a problem. im mainly just tryin to get the carb to work with my truck

You can buy a EGR block off plate from the parts store. Use a gasket and bolt it on then your done. If not, make one at home.

Are you talking about the vacuum line?

If so, just plug it up.
They also make nice caps that go over the outlet on the carb.

I don't need smog inspection on my 76 C10 either but if I get stopped roadside by a smog cop, I would get fined for removing any pollution stuff.

You got me confused.

You mentioned you will swap to a non EGR manifold.
If there is no EGR opening on the new manifold then you won't need any block off plate because there is no hole for the EGR to block off.

Make sense?

sorry for the confusion, i guess thats why i came here to the forum. i didnt know what all the egr is actually connected to other than the carb...i would be swapping the intake manifold also and it would be non egr also...since i will be doing that i can simply remove all egr components and vacuum lines? what all could i remove? i have a diagram of vacuum lines in my manual but there are WAY too many diagrams for possible routing of lines and i just dont know which one actually applies...would removing the egr compromise any other components or does it operate by itself? if that doesnt make sense do tell

You can simply pull of the line and plug it.
