Default egr question

hey I picked up a 92 lx 5.0 about a month ago and today I was putzing around under my hood and i noticed that my egr was unplugged, does that matter? the car has a smog delete I dont know if that makes a difference.

a lot of people d/c them. people argue whether or not it help or hurts more, supposedly you get better gas mileage with them connected, but mine is d/c, and i get 21 mpg

yeah, but if you're not overly concerned with oxides of nitrogen, or the production of them, then its not that big of a deal. they are only made in high quantities when your combustion temps get really high, such as a lean condition. i think most of us will probably have more of a rich running condition......lol, ill give you an e-cookie if you know what TAB and TAD solenoids are off the top of your head
