I have just noticed the gaskets that come off my EGR tube has a metal center reducing the size of the pipe. My new ones from fiero store: 1 has the reduced plate but the other does not. What is the purpose of this reducer and do both tube gaskets need this reducer?
Thanks

Aftermarket EGR's have a reducer washer that goes under the bottom of the EGR. The correct one is stamped with the number 11. In stock form, there is a reducer gasket on the end of the tube underneath the plenum. This helps to reduce a wide open throttle situation should the EGR tube break. Should that happen the engine will easily go over 3500 rpm. That could be a problem with an automamtic when coming to a stop.

Thank you. That makes since. I have owned this fiero for over 20 years and never had the occasion to take the EGR apart.

Here's a good description with illustrations. I won't try to paraphrase Rodney. He describes it best.
