EGR improves part throttle efficiency so your fuel economy and throttle response will suffer without it.
The idle is controlled by the ECU, you need to determine why its not fuelling correctly. Usual suspects are a bad O2 sensor or a cracked exhaust manifold, it could be a dozen other issues though, you need to download the FSM and start working through the diagnostic procedures. Did you blank off the passageways when you removed the EGR?

New O2 sensor may help, update us.

I was under the impression that EGR lowered efficiency, and that it's real purpose was to introduce inert gasses into the combustion chamber, which lowers peak temperatures during detonation and therefore hampers the formation of NOx?

I know you know far FAR more about engine management than I ever will, is the EGR=lower efficiency but less NOx thing a wives tale then?

I have heard that removing it makes more power and gives better throttle response/ efficiency? But I may be wrong!
