EGR Valve

well, i think i've chased my erratic idle down to a sticking EGR valve. Its only 44 bucks, but its order only (which sucks). I dont spose theres any way to bypass the EGR valve, if not at least temporarily? I havent tried to clean up the old one yet...im hoping maybe it will free up in the meantime before the new one comes in...

welp, got her up and runnin again last night. initial impression is that fixing the EGR valve cured my idle woes. and the exhaust leak is minimal now that theres a non burned gasket in place. power feels slightlly better as welll
