    Does deleting the EGR cause a loss of gas mileage?

    I've not seen any loss/gain in gas mileage.

    Just did this clean up yesterday on a Marauder that I put an 03 Cobra Eaton on. In hooking everything back up, I noticed a small fitting pointing straight down from the EVAP thingy mounted on the firewall next to where the plenum sits for the Eaton. Anyone know what is supposed to hook up to this little port coming from the bottom????

    I have 1 line hooked up, and heading back towards the gas tank, and the other larger one hooked to the top vaccuum port on the blower. But what do I hook the little one up to???

    Can you post up a pic so we can see exactly what you are talking about?

    Thanks to the OP for the write-up! I'm doing a Whipple install on my Mach and was very confused about the vacuum routing for an EGR delete. You just saved me a headache!!!

    EDIT: Wow I forgot that I don't post here often...my old sig cracks me up...time to fix it

    No problem. Where in Va. Beach are you? You'll have to bring that Whipple Mach out to Jenro's sometime.

    I live by Landstown High in the Rock Lake area. I used to go to Jenros a lot but haven't been by in years...mostly because my car has been broke off and on!

    I'm almost done with the project...the engine is still on the stand but I'm waiting on some minor parts to complete the engine side. I still need to finish up the fuel system on the car and some other odds and ends...I don't know when I'll be done but will def swing by Jenros when I am! Still on Saturdays weather permitting right?!

    Hell I did this and got lost on the vac lines. I have only 2 vac lines. One goes through the fender (charcole) and the other goes though near the heater core hoses, thats it. I'm assuming that is for the AC. I have no clue where the 3 line is for the gauge....wtf?

    That's correct. Not sure how much longer it will be going this year. As the weather turns cooler you don't get as many people out there. Good luck getting her back together. :beer:

    You should have two lines coming out of the firewall. One is for the A/C controls, one is for your boost gauge. The third line goes down to the charcoal canister. You can see them in this photo.

    When you order this from Lethal does it come with instructions and wire or hose diagrams? What to remove and what to keep?

    No it will only be the block off plate w/bolts, gasket and EGR tube cap. Everything you need to know about the EGR delete process is in this thread.

    So is the delete for a KB close to the same for a Whipple?

    Great thread. I did the delete this weekend. The hardest part was getting the EGR tube out in 1 piece, after that, smooth sailing.

    Yeah, it has to come out from the top by pushing and twisting it out from the bottom.

    I used a 7/8" open and wrench to give me leverage pushing it up. I stuck one side of the "Fork" end of the wrench into the bottom of the tube. This was the only way I could get the tube out in 1 piece.

    Does this also take care of the boost drop off with the whipple?
