The EGR allows exhaust gas into the cylinder during the intake stroke and, amazingly and counterintuitively, LOWERS cylinder temperature. THis lowers emissions and, when operating correctly as it almost always does with fuel injection, makes more power at part throttle, basically all the time, for tha amount of gas consumed by keeping the A/F ratio close to ideal.
