EGR block off for ea82t

actually the purpous of the egr is to reduce combustion temps by introducing a little unburnable gases at cruise speeds. Egr does not function at idle or full throttle.
Just wondering if this would be a good idea? If it recirculates hot exhaust gases back into the intake manifold, would blocking it off help reduce intake temps? Would the engine still run fine? TIA.
I do not recomend it but you may not see any immediate ill effects from adding a block off. just rember combustion temps will be higher.

There's a lot of consideration that should be put into a change such as this - I personally leave it be. It doesn't rob power, it helps emmissions, and keeps the engine cool under certain circumstances - so what's not to like? You should definately give the EGR valve a good cleaning now and then tho.
