Just purchased CHE performance upper/lower trailing arms and installed a spectre throttle body spacer. I still need to reset my ECU so it can adjust for the spacer.

no but you will most likely have one bank fighting the other bank because the cam centerline arent installed strait up.The engine will run but not on top of the game.
Just think if you had a leg shother than the other one by an inch or two . You could still walk and maybe run decently but it would be far from good .( sorry that is the only axample I could think of lol )

Cam do not add power per say but move the powerband higher . You will be making power in the higher rpms where the stock cam didnt have enough duration to fill the cylinder with air . Going with a radical cam profile will kill too much low end torque and the rest of the components and use of the car must match the cam profile.

Is there anything I can do to delete the EGR? Seems counter productive to be sucking so much carbon into the intake...

XE262AH is the most I’d do without affecting low end. EGR, you’ll need to make a block off plate as well as take care of the vacuum lines for it. I snapped off the two plastic ones for the EGR at the rubber booth and melted the plastic shut with a lighter. It’ll take a tune to get rid of the check engine light though
