hallo every one
im really so mad about how the EGR makes my engine dirty.
tody i decided to delete it for ever...but im still confused
after deleting the EGR (removing the whole tube and covering the both holes) do i need any kind of computer programming ? or any software flash ? (i don't use any kind of tune only a simple hole covering)
Thanks in advance

Absolutely need to tune it, yes, or you'll get a countdown to speed limitations - ultimately down to 5mph.

Nobody really does that anymore, unfortunately.

you need a delete tune to compensate for the lack of egr

We used to, but delete tunes are incredibly difficult to find anymore due to last year's major EPA crackdown.

one of my friends told me its better to programme CPU to ignor the EGR than deleting it
what do you think ?

If you're going as far as buying a tune to ignore it, you may as well fully remove it and get the full benefit.

i cant make out what flag is under your name, so cant be sure of your grasp of the english language

but, for the 1000th time.....the computer needs to be programmed to allow for you removing the egr valve

that programming is illegal, good luck finding it

The Cruze is heavily designed for EGR. I recommend not removing it. The engine just can’t produce enough heat without it. Not safely anyway.

i totally agree with you about the role of EGR in heatinf engine and making it hot ennough
but some owners didnt report any issue after removing it
what do you think ?

The number of deleted Cruzes is insanely small. So I have no idea. There may have been problems.

But when we looked into it we deemed it too unsafe to continue. Without the EGR we can’t keep the heat in the engine. The only option is to make the engine run significantly hotter than stock. That is trading one problem for another. Too many unknowns. And people just wanted it to bypass emissions, so we stopped developing.
