egr = wont pass emissions tests. pcv = no oil in the intakes after harsh driving. and you dont "delete" the pcv, you allow it to breathe outside of the engine.

for the pvc, you take the tube off, put a breather filter on the valve cover, and you must block the hole in the intake off completly, the egr will save you from having hot exhaust gas in your car, for the egr delete you will have to get a tune, or a chip, otherwise after the delete your car will run bad

won't pass with out a proper tune

and the advanteg to dleating it is u can remove the egr bungs in the lower intake, there for geting a better flowing intake.

then i would say pull out the pipe, get a tune for it, and then when u get a chance, to get a ported lower intake with the egr bungs removed and welded up.

hmm, no money for a tune :( . but i guess it doesnt matter seeing as how it doesnt really do anything.

that is a waist for the most part, u arnt gana get oil in ur intake, espeshaly if u have stock intakes, and since u don't have any major mods, and im asuming that ur car dosen't see a lot of trake time, save ur mony for somthing else.
