    Default egr removal

    the valve is now gone..

    but what do i do with the hoses that run into and from the egr valve? at least two of them..

    the hole in the intake is closed.

    the hole in the manifold is closed.

    the little hose from the egr sensor on the thermostat to the throttle body is plugged up with a screw.

    The one that goes from the thermostat to the backside of the engine, should i just leave it there?

    thanks

    As long as you've plugged the holes in the inlet plenum and the throttle body you can do what you want with the other two tubes on the thermostat sensor.
    You do not need to keep blocked the small hoses on the egr sensor {thermostat}. Just remove them.
    If you can, remove the tube that goes from the thermostat {backside of the engine} to the egr valve. You will gain some weight {50 gr ???}. Mine is still there but I'll remove it as soon as I could reach it.

    but if you remove the egr you remove both 1 and 2. Does this tube troubles you? Leave it where it is.

    here is a picture of what you must remove.
    Do not forget to block the hole in the red cycle
