I already take all bolts from the intake and unplug two I guess 1/2 inch hoses close to the valve I can move the intake but something is holding the intake I think is the rgr valve

Ok finaly I take the intake out but it was hard I have to take the wiper cowl off to gain acces to the 2-10mm bolts from the egr valve but first move the 0 clamps from the heater hoses and the 2 fat hoses from the egr sensor and take the vacum egr selenoid out that way you can stick your hands and a 1/4 racthet with a long 10 mm socket to release the intake and the egr valve is there easy to remove well I didn't. Do it yet but I was checkin the manifold elbow and I see I can remove it to later install the valve easy so I take the elbow off and I notice betwen the elbow gasket and the manifold is a cut to let pass I guess gas from the exhaust from the egr and the other part I don't know what's the name of it but it have 3 cuts but they were clogged they were very dirty

Jajaja always is easy to take everything apart the challenge is when you have to put everything together again. One more thing what else you recommend to replace now the I have the intake out? Cuz sometimes I noticed the exhaust gas smell weird

IIRC, I took my valve off the manifold before I pulled the manifold out when I did my conversion; it was easier that way than trying to get that EGR tube off with all that room in there. I believe I used a 1/4" inch drive with socket & a wrench to remove the two EGR bolts. The EGR tube on the 94-95's is pretty short.
