Default 04 1500 4.7 liter NON EGR vs EGR

Hello,

Im looking to find out if i swap a 4.7 that has an EGR to my truck that has no EGR to begin with if that would mess anything up. Basiclly can i just block the egr off and my truck wouldnt know the difference? I wanted to be sure before i spent a grand on a motor that has an EGR. I cant find one around me that doesnt have an EGR so...

Thanks

Are you keeping your old computer. I would think as long as the computer doesn't think there should be an egr, it should work. This is a guess on my part to be honest, but it does make sense.

they plug the egr on the diesel without issue. just the ecm from old engine and you should be good. i am not an expert though.

Thanks for the replies i went ahead and took a gamble on the 87000 mile motor and it turned out to be NON EGR so everything will fit like a glove!
