So I picked up a second intake manifold to work on and put my aluminum plenum plate on, so I can work on it at my leisure. I figured I would do the kegger mod while I have the chance. My question is about the routing of the egr. The manifold directs the gases into the middle through a "tube" molded into the center divider, obviously to distribute them evenly between all cylinders. Since the kegger mod requires the removal of the center divider, it would remove this "tube" the gases travel through as well, which would cause the gases to just enter through the side of the manifold. My question is will this cause any problems? Since the gases won't really be evenly distributed anymore? Just wanted to play it safe.
You can see the "tube" in this pic

While my kegger doesn't have the EGR tube, when I modded it I left the center divider intact. I think the removal vs. non-removal benefits are minimal. Mine still pulls like a scalded ape. Just my 2 cents...
I read somewhere, maybe speedfreaks.net, about someone 'modding' the kegger and actually getting less torque at the dyno. I would just deshroud the injector bosses and smooth out the runners and call it done.
Well it's done,hot tanked and a run through the bead blaster to get it clean,smoothed out all the runners and injector ports and gasket matched it to the fel-pro gaskets before a high heat paint job and Hughes plate kit.
