As many of you already know, i have a 1994 Dakota, 3.9, 5 speed. Recently, found some major issues with the engine, so, i found a complete, good running 3.9 from a 1998 Dakota. Today, i went to swap my intake to the new engine, and, due to using the cork end gaskets, which i have since found out i wasn't supposed to, due to them being too thick, i snapped the intake in half when i went to torque it. My engine has EGR, but, the new engine doesn't, so, my question is, since everything else is the exact same on both intakes, can i use the non-EGR intake from the 98 on my 94? I know it may throw a code for the EGR not being present, but, other than that, what other issues may arise from eliminating the EGR system? The biggest reason for this is, finding an EGR intake wont be easy around here, as most of the yards are getting away from older vehicles. My biggest concerns are that i have some very long, 400 mile or more, round trips coming up, and, each of those trips will be towing a vehicle at least half way, and, i don't want to cause any damage to the new engine, and waste all the work i did.
