Default egr problems

I have a 94 v10 that I am installing headers on and no where to install egr tube. What is the fall back of capping off at intake manifold... Need imput. Thanks!

I have a 94 V10 as well, I have thought about capping the egr on mine as well. I have a parts engine from a 98, they don't have egr. I believe 96 and up are that way. Instead of capping the egr, I will most likely swap to the newer intake and exhaust manifolds and newer heads, since they are supposed to be better castings.

I'd take that EGR system and throw it out the window. it drains your horsepower output and wears down you engine faster. I dont have a V10 personally but im sure that system does more harm then good like in any other vehicle.
