I installed a Edelbrock Performer RMP upper intake with a EGR eliminator plate and a 70MM throttle body. The air bypass valve electrical connector was hitting the fill tube on the valve cover. It looked like it was happening because the EGR valve housing was removed and the EGR eliminator plate was installed. The EGR housing is about 1" thick and the eliminator plate is 1/4" thick. With the eliminator plate installed it moved the throttle body in closer to the upper intake and causing the clearance problem. I took the air bypass apart and put it into a vise. Grabbed onto the electrical connector and twisted it into a position for clearance for the filler tube. I searched the forum and found no mention of this and just wanted to know if anyone else had this problem. Is there a way to check the bypass valve to see if it still works after twisting the connector.
