    The egr and air provision will not effect the sound of your exhaust! what did you install?brands?

    yes you can! shops like speed inc. do sell block off plates. With that said, if you installed cats, then dont block those off, the AIR is needed for your cats to stay healthy, and proper o2 readings!

    If you installed and ORY and went catless then use the block off plates and remove the egr and air pump system completely! It frees up front end weight and cleans up the engine bay!

    Those are on the passenger side...there is another one on the drivers side that looks the same. If you take the tubes off, you will see a hole.

    why didnt you just buy the race style headers?? they dont have those fittings so you wouldnt have this problem if you bought the race style. but speedinc sells the block off plates if you need them also you will need to pull the air pump fuse if you got that stuff all out.

    He is running Macs with cats. The last I heard if he had hooked the egr and air up and the ses light is flashing. Maybe a plug wire off.
