Hopefully someone can help me...

I want to remove the EGR set up from my EB 5.0 and need to some info from people who have done this.
What I need to know is if they required an EVP eliminator or did the ECU cope OK without it...

Thanks in advance!

Just ri[p it out, you dont need it, if you were to fit the explorer intake for example you would be removing the EGR. Just block up and throw out the vac hoses as you wont be needing them either. Well at least thats what i think anyway....maybe ask someone else also

I am fitting the exploder manifold which doesnt have the EGR system in it, no problem with removing it all, just need to know if the ECU will have issues without the EVP sensor..

I deleted mine for the same reason, explorer manifold. My ECU throws up a couple of fault codes but that is about it. You may notice a little more part throttle/cruise pinging though, that is if you're still using the stock E7 heads.

thanks for that, yes I'm still using the E7 heads for the moment.

Did you encounter the pinging when running on ULP or is your car LPG too?

Either way, doesnt sound like it's going to be too bad, and maybe one of these will take care of it..

I've ported and shaved 30 thou off my E7s but run it on premium and LPG with the cam. If I run it on 91, it will ping on full throttle but on gas and 95-98, it runs good.

fordfuelinjection.com used to have a small tech section where it had instructions on how to make these but someone saw profit in that so they took it off. Not necessary on Aussie 5.0Ls.

Keep the EGR stuff operational, the engine will still run without the EGR parts but you will get fault codes. Any time a fault code is thrown these ecu's are likely to drop out some timing, then you loose power.

The fix is easy, just drill and tap the EGR spacer so the EGR valve and EVP sensor attach (even though the manifold has no exhaust gas passage), then re-connect the electrical and vacuum connections. The result is the computer still thinks EGR is working as EVP sends varying signals back to the ecu as the vacuum solenoid moves the EGR valve, but there is no exhaust gas being introduced to the engine.

It takes about 30 minutes from start to finish
