    2000 and below had EGR, the only gain you will see from it is a cleaner engine bay

    and a tune is recommended afterwards to zero the EGR timing table.

    if yor doing a EGR delete may as well add a WS6 intake. Pick them up cheap usually off a newer car that someone bought a Fast set up for.

    as long as you've removed the egr and a.i.r. systems they'll work. They all will have the O2 bungs in them....the difference between the years is the egr system. As long as you're egr and air systems are removed the race style will work.

    is the air system different from the egr? or are they the same?

    2 different systems. The air system connects to both exhaust manifolds and has check valves. Lines run from those to a pump that's behind the drivers side headlight.
    The EGR connects to the passenger manifold only and runs through the egr valve and into the top of the intake.

    actually you might get a little more flow out of your intake when you delete the egr.because you dont have that big tube sticking down right behind the throttle body butterfly.im sure that egr tube is resricting flow.remove it and your intake will flow better.dont know if you will notice it,but it will flow better.

    You need 02 extensions if you are installing long tubes. I don't see any mention anywhere of you installing long tubes, so I would say no at this point. If you are simply removing your EGR system, you don't need 02 extensions for that.

    You will need 02 extensions, when you do the long tubes.

    I would recommend o2's with the long leads instead of extensions. Bosch 13111 is what I'm running with no issues.
