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.
i took the motor out of a cali emissions x and am goin to rebuild it all i have is the motor and then im wanting to put it in my federal emissions truck i wanted to make sure that the egr valve was the only diff in the motors
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.
turdle sorry its been awhile since i have replied but the motor came out of a 94 Cali and im putting it into a 93 fed. and are you sure the cam sensor can be left unplugged and not cause any harm? i has because the one is damaged and i cant afford to replace it if i dont need to?
