Rubbing Compound

I used this on my EGR without even taking it off. It's sold for manifolds but my EGR valve looks brand new. Stuff works, I am here to say and after 3 months it still looks damn good.

It's probably not the best thing you could clean it with but I've heard of people doing it before so I think you'll be fine.

Lumoon I bought the EGR delete from ford dealership for $12.50 came with a gasket and block off plate and a cap for the passenger side exhaust manifold/header. Took literally five minutes to remove. I also went with a colder thermostat to combat any possible increase in core temp. I have heard from several people who deleted theirs that they saw no noticeable increase in core temps.

What is the EGR for and what are the risk/benefits of deleting it?
The EGR bring exhaust gasses back into the upper intake to be reburned. I believe it helps keep cylinder temps down a bit as well. Advantages of deleting it are pretty much just easier to change spark plugs, easier to install a supercharger/turbo, cleaner looking engine bay, and I believe the delete it required to install a Windstar upper intake.
