You might get a CEL, but I can't be sure. There really isn't much benefit in doing this unless your EGR is faulty. The EGR lowers combustion temps @ idle and low speed. If you simply want to disable it, push a BB into the vacuum line on the EGR valve.

You can take a Cali motor, pull the emissions stuff off, and put on the non-EGR fed stuff, sure. Cali Explorers have other emissions stuff and different PCM/ECM computers, but the rest of the engine should be the same.

Lower intake is shorter on 95 up, so you may need to use the spacer to fit it to your upper for proper spacing.

also, the cam sensor can be left in place and left unplugged.

What year is the engine from? Fuel injector connectors might be an issue
