    I want to say EGR was removed on the 00-02 cars, but I'm not 100% sure. If that is the case though just block off the EGR port and done. There is nothing else that is different.

    194 bulbs for the license plate. Careful though, colored license plate bulbs could get you a ticket. Not sure about PA but Ohio specifically states it must be a white bulb.
