To be clear this was my first engine swap. I generally wouldn’t have done something like this on my own but I had driven the truck 900 miles to deliver my exes possessions and the other engine threw a rod and burned a valve so I went with what I though would be cheaper and found an engine a guy had for sale out of his 78 corvette. I couldn’t tell you what engine was in my truck to start with bc the block castings were all mauled up. Judging from the head casting it was a mid to early 80s pickup. The reason I asked about the egr is I only have basic knowledge on the egrs function and the only intake I could find that was affordable did not have the egr mounts and I’ve seen where people have had their trucks programmed to run without it. I had planned to do the same but I need a quick fix to get me home so I can work on fixing it the right way.
