Default BP4W head with BP5 Cam. Which EGR solenoid to use, NA or NB?

I just did this conversion, and it drives awesome! But the NB EGR solenoid is still attached to the NB intake, while the NA EGR solenoid is been kept with zip ties, and wired to the engine... If anyone has done this conversion, how did you resloved the EGR issue, and could you post pics?

Thanks!

PS: I searched, and searched, and could not find anything specific to which EGR to use.

Sorry, when I put a BP4W head/intake on my 96 block, I just deleted EGR. I'm betting many others do the same.

Delete EGR. is what I did. I don't think there is anything different about the way they function. If you want to keep it just figure out what combination of parts can be modified to fit.

If you want to keep it for some reason, I'd figure out how to make the electrons go in and out of the nb one that bolts to the manifold.
