Default EGR question about a Gt40 intake swap.

I'm sure this question has been asked a billion times already but i have goggled it and have found nothing. If it has I'm sorry to ask it again.

I just picked up a gt40 upper and lower intake for my '90 foxbody. After removing the old stock upper and lower intake i realized the gt40 is a NON EGR setup. I know they make a plate to remove and block it off, is that what i need to get before i install everything? Can i install the gt40 intake setup and leave the egr valve still on and not have any worries? Any help would be great!!! Sorry again if this question was asked many many times before. Heres a pic of the intake. Also anything i need to do with the PCV valve,or is it all the same and just swap it? Thanks!!

Yes, you can leave the EGR valve on and have no worries. it will not interfere with anything.

You can pick this up...

or do what I did with a piece of sheet metal..

Then before you ask the next question.....the cluster vacuum lines on the passenger side can be removed as well along with the solenoids they attach to on the back of the strut tower. The 2 lines that come off that go into the fenderwell can be left unblocked and just pushed into the fenderwell. Then you have the source line for it all that connected to the back of the intake. With what you are doing you will have it redone anyway... no need for the EGR vacuum.
