I know that alot of Camaro guys block off or just remove the EGR systems.

So I know that normal cars will function without the EGR.

Would the Insight computer notice the EGR being blocked?
If so what would be the bad effects on the engine? I know the good effect would be a clean studder free engine.

Your thinking about the PCV valve. Positive Crankcase ventaltion valve

The EGR valve simply take the dirty hot exhaust gas and places in into the cool clean intake air... Good for emission. Good for MPG. Poor design on almost any engine that causes the intake to become clogged with carbon/sut



I plan on blocking the EGR once I get my OBDII software. Just to see what happens :?

I blocked off the EGR valve using a piece off of a coke can. Blocked it off real nice. I took a 5 mile trip down the road turned around and about 2 more miles the check engine light came on. Not sure if it was realted or if it was because the car warmed up but the surging was still present.

CEL was for insuffecent (sp) flow on the EGR
