Hi been reading up here for a while gathereing the wealth of knowledge, and finally now my first post. I am installing new new injectors and a TT chip and wanted to remove the EGR on my car to clean up the engine bay a little. My question is if I remove the EGR valve, can I also remove the "neck" that bolts to the intake (under the EGR) and curves around to the rear of the intake? I would put a plate on the intake where the EGR came from and a threaded plug into the hole on the rear of the intake. Thanks!
