First thing I noticed is that the car drives much smoother and NO STUMBLE
.
I used some roofing copper that I found at a jobsite. there's two bolts that hold it inplace to a pipe that runs to the intake, un-did it took the gasget and shapped the copper to it, and put it back togetter..

What exactly do you need to do to remove. I know you have to remove the tube from the exhaust, the EGR itself and plug the holes on the exhaust and intake, but what about the DPFE (however its called) and small little vac. tubes???

Thx!!!

well other then the egr being pluged in to the intake and exhaust manifolds it there is i think 2 support bolts that have to be taken off and then you need to take the sensor off from were it is and leave it pluged up...just lay it in the engine bay or zip tie it to something. Also the little hose thats attatched to the silver disk looking thing just take a screw and plug it up and thats it. You will be supprised how much room it frees up.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Thats what I did. And when it comes time for emissions, it still looks as though its hooked up.

I didnt do it to remove the stumble, I have a turbo, and it was bleeding off boost through the tiny holes on the bottom (not anymore baby!)

So it still is connected to the exhaust part, just blocked on the intake side?

what are the benefits of this?

i plan on making a complete EGR removal Kit.

consisting of:

1 22mm bolt for heh header end.
1 aluminum plate with gasket for the intake manifold end.
3 little rubber caps to block off the 2 dpfe sensor ports, and the one EGR sensor port on the firewall.

let me know what you think

by blocking the egr the car runs and drives better, this system is the weak link to this car.

I have no cell, and I love it.
