If I disconnect the electrical connector going to the EGR valve and don't put a resistor in it, what happens? I haven't gotten a check engine light but are timing/fuel maps affected at all by this?
OMM my bad forgot to add that part. I was talking about non-cali. If its a cali ECU, it will throw a code no matter what year. EGR valve I heard is only active between a certain rpm. Like from 2850rpm-3215rpm...... something along those lines in any gear.
What I did for my Cali car was to just install an EGR block off plate in between the EGR and the manifold. That way the ECU still thinks the EGR is there (because it is) but the passage way is still blocked off. Plus, if I ever got a visual smog inspection by someone who REALLY knows what they are doing, they'll still see the EGR right where it is supposed to be. They'd have to actually remove the damn thing to know it was actually blocked off.
