    Im sure this has been covered, but has anyone successfully blocked the EGR on a 1988 Ranger 2.3L and gained HP/performance/MPG
    Thanks in advance

    Since your Ranger's EGR only operates at part throttle, it has zero effect on WOT HP or performance. Fuel economy may be VERY slightly improved with the EGR operational because it allows more spark advance. In short, there is nothing to gain by tampering with an EGR system that is in good working order.

    I have heard of people successfully blocking the EGR valve. It will not gain you "HP/performance/MPG", and the fact that you think it might displays a wonderful lack of understanding of how EGR works.

    For one thing, it only kicks in when you are cruising and don't need full engine power.

    1st I didnt say anything about thinking it will, I have read several discussions about it and was curious. 2nd I understand how it works, I have just never tried to "mod" one and 3rd this is my first post here and I get slammed?

    Second and last post. I dont know why some people have to be so rude
    Done with this forum, thanks
