I'm not sure. I don't really keep up with the EJ crowd. I've worked on a couple, but never built one. 

 

I have read a bunch on the swap, though. I suggest you do, too. The wiring is the worst part; especially if it's OBDII. 

 

That being said, it's still not cheap regardless.

That's sweet. Looks like you have some good panels to use for the Brat. Spare everything is always nice.

I thought the egr was eliminated with the weber carb? I definitely could be wrong though!

My best bet is the PCV valve.

Depending on how the PVC hoses are setup on the Weber,(if, at all) it's most likely PCV related. I wouldn't worry about it till it's on the brat.

EGR just regulates exhaust gas to my understanding.

It doesn't have to be. If you want to- you can. People have opinions on whether or not it's beneficial.

Its up to you, really.

Also, does it even matter if it sprays oil? It gets in the air filter but does it matter?

The PCV valve is located almost directly behind the carb. Here is a picture of what it looks like (Credit Dinky26)

Its the plastic piece that the cracked hose is on.
