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.

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?
