It depends on if you have emssions inspections. They do help smog reduction. I took the one of my 87tc and the car runs great with out it. It also ran fine with it.
If you want a good used one let me know. I will sell you mine for a reasonable price. Say $15.00 shipped. There is nothing wrong with it.
I took it off when I changed turbos because I didn't want to mess with the egr pipe.
Sold my Turbocoupe. It went to a good home.

New EGR from Ford is $102, but has them for around 80.

If you don't want to spend the $$$, I'd get one from the junkyard. Or, to buy used, I'm sure you can find someone to sell you one for around $10 ??? Post an ad in the wanted section here or at ...

If you want to ditch it altogether, you'll need an EGR blockoff plate and a threaded pipe plug at the exhaust manifold. Also, you'll have to cap off the vac line running the valve, or remove it altogether.

Personally, I would keep the EGR system if you need to pass emissions testing in your area.

Did you hear about the Lucas powered torpedo? It sank.

It's best to keep the EGR functional although some people do block them off.

I'll sell you the cast housing part for $12 + shipping. This is the cast part only, what bolts to the upper intake, you have to transfer the diaphram assy from your old one. E-mail me if interested.
