Smile EGR Question

Hey guys,

What is the advantage of turning off the EGR through SCT tuning?

Keeps the internals of the engine cleaner, it stops the flow of hot gasses past the cooler which some say causes "flash boiling" of the coolent and that causes puking. If you have the SCT by all means turn off the EGR.

A veteran is someone who, at one point in his/her life wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America' for an amount of 'up to and including their life.' That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.
