So, I am eliminating the EGR system as the new engine doesn't have the passages in the heads.  As such, it looks like the EGR solenoids activated off of the fuel pressure regulator line (finger is pointing to it).  Can I just run this into the upper intake manifold?

Is it just getting its vacuum from the same source as the FPR? If so, I'd just follow it back and cap it.

EGR solenoids are typically just hooked up to a manifold vacuum source, same as the FPR. They likely are just supplied by the same line for convenience and cost savings.

Must be a "Joisey" thing.

knucklefux: fingernail is for scraping tape off of boxes (when I am too lazy to get a box cutter), scraping meat off the bones, picking my nose, etc.........what they were meant to be used for.

juiced coupe: I think the EGR solenoids were activated by the smog pump; which died years ago.  I left it on there because the previous owner eliminated the a/c and rigged it up somehow.  After I did that, my computer was throwing all kinds of EGR codes. 

I was under the impression that the FPR was providing pressure to the EGR solenoids.  Am I wrong about that?  If so, I would have to reverse my thinking and find a source (vacuum tree?).

Vacuum tree: fat line on the bottom is off the brake booster.  After I get the other things replaced in the 31 year old car, I will attend to these hoses and lines that will be blocked by the engine when it goes back in.

I dug out the EVTM and figured it out.  As Murphy's Law would have it; I was searching through my work phone and found pictures of the stock upper intake that I labeled.  It was right there in that picture.     After ripping apart my place for that EVTM

So I'm a friggin moron!!!  I was searching through my work phone and found this picture.  I knew that I took pictures of the original engine components.  Just forgot that I used other cameras.
