EGR (exhaust gas recirculation). Basically reduces nitrogen oxide in the combustion chamber by recirculating exhaust air which is hotter than intake air so the air/fuel mix doesnt have to heat up the air as much so its more efficient.

It acutually reduces combustion chamber temps by quite a bit. The EGR system gets has a bad rep because people think it reduces performance but it does a lot of good for the engine plus the environment.

Yeah sorry your right. Hotter temperatures enable the formation of nitrogen oxides in the combustion chamber therefore EGR decreases temperature to stop this from forming.

Its not just 5.0 that have EGR, plenty of cars have them
