How to eliminate egr
 
Is there a way I can get a chip that will eliminate egr? Will this make my truck run better. If so where can I get one? It's a 94 Chevy 1500 2wd

Talk to Brian at TBI chips.com he can tune you a chip with the EGR function deleted. It may cost you a few mpg on the highway but it can be done, might as well get an hotchip from while you are there for more performance.

Unless there is a failure of the EGR valve itself, eliminating the function will with the exception of less fuel mileage go unnoticed.

EGR if it's working properly only is active in cruise, it is entirely out of the system at idle and at any requirement for power above cruise.

So unless you're getting surging and detonation problems that would indicate and can be traced back to a fault in the EGR, it's existance is completely unnoticed to the operator and it has no effect upon full throttle power. Stirkes me this is spending money on a non problem.

EGR also helps prevent detonation when running truck on todays Cat wizz gasoline.

Does anyone know where the vaccum line from the egr valve is supposed to go??? I think I might have it going to the wrong place.
