don't know why it won't start but my EGR has been gone for years. must have knocked some thing loose while working on it.
Do everything with a positive attitude, it won't always work but you'll piss enough people off to make it worthwhile.

the voices aren't real but they sure have good ideas.

As long as the holes are blocked off independantly from each other it will be fine. But if air can get from one hole to other you have crated a huge vacuum leak.

If the holes are blocked you have another problem as to why it wont crank.
