    I'm waiting for a new crate engine, it will come without intake. I don't know how to go on with it, keep the old one or get Edelbrock Performer, but EGR or NOT?If I want to keep egr do I need some other parts?
    Is a '79 350/350

    Thanx for any help

    If you have to have a smog inspection i would use an egr or you will fail. The egr reduces cylinder temps witch reduces NOX (nitrates of oxygen) and it is a failable emission

    I'd keep the EGR. It reduces exhaust emissions and also greatly reduces the tendency for pinging under part-throttle conditions.
