    Is it possible to delete the EGR completely from my truck (94 3.0 T4R) without any issues? I have been researching it with limited success- most threads I have found on it through various forums end up going off track and the question never gets answered. So has anyone here done the EGR delete? What all did you do, and did you run into any issues? I am still researching, but I figured it could not hurt to throw a thread of my own up here to fish for some answers.

    Deleted mine a while back. No performance issues but less clutter in the engine bay. Also got rid of the round filter canister with no engine codes. I hate clutter!

    Awesome! I read that some people had to plug a 10k Ohm resistor into the harness plug for the EGR to keep it from throwing a code. Did you have to do that, or are there just no codes?
