It is nice if you can blank the egr. The cat is more blantant removal of emissions equipment. My Jeep Liberty is 70k miles on svo I turned off the egr but I still have the cat.

If you are familiar with cat's you'll know there is no need to remove them.

Drop the tailpipe section off and smack a bit of metal rod or pipe into the cat and break up the ceramic honeycomb. start the engine to blow out the fragments and when you are done re-attach the tailpipe.

The cat will still be there and look exactly as it should only it won't be doing anything except acting a bit like a straight through muffler.

There's no need to smash the core either they work fine on biodiesel, unless you want the characteristic biodiesel smell when you drive by. DPF filters are a totally different story.

Blanking the EGR valve when running on biodiesel will give even more permanence, more power less smoke a win win situation. 5-7 mpg improvement, no change in driving style.
