    You'll need to go into the computer to turn off the EGR function or purchase a EGR simulator from eBay

    Without doing either of those, the CEL will come on

    Why bother. A functioning EGR valve has no adverse effect on performance, and you'll actually get better highway gas mileage. The performance drop is in the heads and the intake. If you really want to get rid of EGR and pick up some power you want to go with an offroad head and intake.
