edelbrock help?

Hey guys trying to figure out my carb. situation. Don't know much about them. Anyways I have a 79 ford w/a 400 , edelbrock egr intake topped with a edelbrock 1405 non- egr carb? There are some spacers and plates one of which has a spot to bolt on an egr valve? This plate has 4 holes in it and is about 1 in. thick . However my egr that was attached to it has never been hooked up . There are no other emissions stuff on the truck , should i just do away with the plates and spacers and the egr itself or what? Thanks guys for any info or help.

Sometimes the EGR valve can alloy you to run a little more timing without part throttle detonation. You can remove it if you don't plan on using it. just be sure that the EGR port on top of the intake will be sealed without the EGR plate on there. Sometimes, they are offset a litle and the standard spacer will not cover it. Not sure how the Edelbrock is configured.
