Doing the EGR delete this weekend. Went through CompCowboys instructions (great job by the way) on what to do. Still have one question. Which is better, unplug the butterfly or pull the plate and leave it plugged in???

Also what is the purpose of the butterfly?

You don't leave anything plugged in no matter what you do.
I say leave the butterfly in unless you have bucking problems but those seem to have gone away with all but the oldest flashes. You should be fine.

have the EGR unplugged now and have some little surge problems when going from reverse to drive and back (like when backing into a tight spot)...Unplugging the butterfly should fix that then???

is the plug in the box on the valve or outside of it? haven't gotten in there to look...didnt know if i needed to remove the cover to unplug it or not...

That's not the butterfly, if your driving around town now without any other issues just leave it in.

Polaraco got his done late last night and is going to post up a few more pics this morning, but here are his initial thoughts on those two parts.

But give me a month or so...lol

thats is what I am going to do...hopefully it isnt a plug like the EGT ones were...those were a PIA...I definatly will post after it is done...

BTW, what is everyone doing with the loose plugs? right now the EGR plug is slipped between the two lines by the driverside battery...wish there were caps for them to clean it up a little...lol

You can't do much to them. . . A dot of grease could be conductive and drive the ECM nuts. Guess the best thing is to tape it over real good to geep dirt out and hope it doesn't corrode.

I'm in talks with the manufacturer of the connector to get just weather seals for the plugs so you can plug in a mating plug pretty much, no wires just a cap. :thumbsup:

I cut the corner off of a ziploc bag and put that over the plug and used a ziptie to seal it around the wiring, that way nothing will get in there, and then just ziptied it to some other wires out of the way.

Fill them up with dielectric grease and then tape them.:thumbsup:

Does dielectric grease conduct current? If so stray inputs could make the ECM go bonkers.

dielectric grease does NOT conduct electricity. That is why you can use it in connectors.
