Shut Off EGR

Just wanted some feedback on what people think of disabling the EGR on a 90's Ford 5.0 L... Secondly can it be done just by plugging it's vacume-tube?

I've driven a few older mercurys and lincoln from the 1970's. They were all purchased used. When I started to have any troubles resulting in a diminished performance in any of those cares I would disconnect the EGR.

Not sure if it still applys to cars of the 90's but I suggest you go ahead and try it. Just snip the vacuum hose leading to it and plug the ends where you cut.

Drive it and if you think you made a mistake, just reconnect.

If vwhobo was here, I'm sure he would agree.
