Bare Essentials

I have a 1988 jeep wrangler with a 4.2 L motor straight 6.
What would happen if i plug the tube that runs from the Exhaust maifold to the intake manifold. I believe its called a EGR tube.
Also there is a tube that runs from the exhaust manifold to the other side of the motor. ( pulse air upstream).
Any one tried that?

Plugging them will do little for performance. The EGR can actually make it run a bit better, because it moderates combustion temperature.

As for the exhaust pulse streams, the engine will run about the same with or without.

I took all of it off of mine when I did the Weber.

The Pulse air stuff im removing.
That seemed to remove some of the vacum leaks.

What all do you have hooked up with the Weber carbs.
Can i remove all the hoses going to the vacum canisters also?
