    I just surf on here because maybe other people have experienced the same problems as me. I really don't have the money to be spending taking my car to a mechanic everyday, when i can talk to nice guys on here like jimmyz or 2000ta that are willing to help.

    I'm new to the sport car arena, my experience is on GM Trucks, so maybe take this with a grain of salt.

    Removing the EGR will increase power slightly. It will most likely produce an error light. Pull the dash cluster (5 mins) and remove the bulb. Problem solved.

    The is a waay to get the light to go off without removing bulb with a tuner, as for the hp gain its said to be about 5-10 hp at the crank.

    In the clouds is your car lowered at all?

    Removing EGR may cause you to fail emissions if they use sniffers in your state.

    Car is not lowered.

    clg82,

    OK, the baffle you are talking about is in the hood itself, correct. If so this is not EGR, this is simply just a rain guard. You can drill the rivets out that hold it in place and remove it. You can also lift your filter out and look under where it lies, the 2 big areas under it can be cut out(do not cut out the center brace) giving you the free ram air mod. Also with taking out the rain guard I would suggest replacing the filter with a K&N or equivalent, NO PAPER FILTER!!! As while driving in the rain the paper filter will get saturated by water and set off a check engine light: experienced it. As for EGR itself, on the side of your lid, that tube that comes out is EGR, you can remove that and seal up that hole, if you don't seal the hole anything that gets sucked into that hole goes straight into the intake, bypassing the filter. I wouldn't recommend this unless you are gonna get a tune and have EGR deleted.

    But yes this forum is for anybody, the unexperienced to get advice and seek greater knowledge, and the experienced to share their advice and give their knowledge. And remember the only dumb question is the question not asked. Better safe than sorry, cause cars or motors aren't cheap... And by all means use these forums as much as you want and can.

    The EGR Mod is simple and does not throw any codes.
    Remove the 10mm bolt that holds the tube in the intake make sure not to drop the O ring. Cover the hole with a rag so no metal shavings get in the intake then using a dremel or hack saw cut the tube just below the shoulder (or about 1 1/4 inches). Then just bolt the tube back in place.

    I did All this about 8 yrs ago when the car was a year old (back then it was all new stuff) Car had approx 24,000 or so then and Now has 115k and have had ZERO problems with any or these since. I got most of these off of this site way back then when there was a free mods link.
    I've Owned this Car since New and have No Problems spreading my Knowledge and Experience to whoever asks for it.
