    It's me again I finally got my level 3 700r from bowtieoverdrives installed works great and thanks for the advice. My question is that while I was underneath removing the old tranny I noticed the EPR valve for the first time and found out two things about it right away while scratching my head in wonder 1. that it was in a closed postion and 2. that there was nothing connected to it . Is that bad it would seem to me that I'm losing power because the exhaust is not flowing freely? If this is or isn't true let me know and can I remove it completely or just rig it so it's stuck in the open postion until I redo my exhaust

    Thank You those sticky's are awesome so I guess it's spring loaded to the open postion and doesn't really matter that it's not hooked up I was afraid it was the opposite and that it was blocking my exhaust on that side
