I'm not sure about long term.
Like said above you might have a little bit worse gas mileage...some people block the EGR anyway to stop the intake from receiving that carbon filled hot air.
Won't pass your smog inspection either I don't think.
it won't mess up the car permanently, you'll experience some rough idle at times and the car won't run at it's best, and you'll fail NOX if you have to pass emissions
but no, it won't permanently damage the car
