Default Intake Manifold

Ok Guys and Gals, another daily trivia question from yours truly.....

I want to know what the difference is between a NON-EGR Intake Manifold, and a EGR Intake Manifold is? My truck has a EGR on it, but I was wanting to replace my current intake manifold with this....

Any info would be appreciated! Thanks all!

EGR stands for Exhaust Gas Recirculation. EGR is used for controlling emissions.

A non EGR manifold does not have provisions for mounting an EGR valve or the required EGR passages to recirculate the exhaust gasses.

Everything you want to know about EGR systems:

The most common issues with EGR removal are:

1. higher emissions, possibly failing an emission test from a reading or visual inspection standpoint
2. detonation due to higher combustion temperatures

BTW.....I assume you have another RAM other than the one in your sig. It would be kinda hard to install the manifold depicted on your RAM 50!

You know, i was looking at the manifold, and i told myself there is no way that is for my truck! I hate when websites say its a direct OEM for my truck. i have been running into this problem a lot lately.
