It'll trip a code. No bigee there. Maybe a check engine light. EGR is used to cool combustion temperatures to reduce NOX emissions. Hotter combustion means more power, but all else being equal (timing, fuel grade) the extra power potential could be lost in pre-ignition knock. In other words, to keep the engine happy, you may need to step up level or two at the pump. You will then see the extra power. Nothing killer, but real.

Egr is an efficiency improver only in the sense that it is used to prevent knock, otherwise it's a performance/efficiency killer.
