I have a beautiful 1995 S-350 that I would like to keep forever. I do not think it will last very long sucking in all the crud from the EGR valve. I do not know the workings of this valve in relation to the engine computer, but when I plug the vacuum line at the EGR valve or the thing before the valve and drive the car 2-3 miles it looses power until I hook the line back up AND restart the car. I guess this resets the computer. What is being sensed and where to tell the car not to (I think) give full turbo boost. I want to disconnect this valve even if it means routing a new line to the air filter housing and welding a plate over the exhaust manifold hole for the EGR pipe.
