Hi..

I am planning to do an EGR mod in the new year but can't decide if I should do the block mod or the remove mod.

Any suggestions as to which I should do considering that I am running stock turbos.

Thanks in advance.....

The single plate fixes the fact that the EGR brings hot air into the intake manifold.. but does not remove the possiblility of having a boost leak..

If you really want a reliable setup, go with the 2 plate setup.. although its a pain in the but to install the other plate... IMO its well worth the headache of having the EGR valve as a boost "leaker"

How hard is it?

I saw the mkiv.com direction for the 2 plate but they completely skipped the 2nd plate direction and went straight to the result. How are hard is it to do this whole thing?

I just ordered the EGR mod kit from PHR. Any input or pointers will be very helpful.

Thanks,
Kaz

you know.. I got the 2 plate setup... and I thought it would be a piece of cake.. well well.. to my surpise.... the first plate on top is pretty easy, but the second is very hard..

I gave up and had MPH Unlimited do the second plate install... it took a trained mechanic (thanks guys) about 20 minutes with proper tools and a lift to install the scond plate...

but once again.. IMO well worth the removal of the headache..

Is there anyone on this list that has done before and after tests with the egr MOD. I guess that a EGT probe fitted to the sixth runner would show a reflected reduction in temperature.

Also does anyone know if the egr mod gives rise to boost creep when no bleeder or boost controller is fitted. I ask this because the jap-spec Supra has no egr system and will boost to 1.2bar+ when the cats are removed and the stock exhaust replaced, whereas the US/UK spec car holds boost to about 1.0 bar (as i recall) without a problem.


regards............

Why a lift? Did you have to explain them what had to be done or could they figure it out on their own?

What kind of tools will I need?

Thanks,

Im sure it doesnt require a lift, but then again.. it was probably used to make it easier...

I dunno why a lift either!!?!?!?!?!
The egr is on TOP of my engine. It's easiest to get to with the car low.
Maybe they were doing something else.

Were they just lifting the car up to a height were it's easier to work on from the top hence they would have to bend over that much?

We are talking about the lower of the two flanges... I guess that the mechanic had a better reach at it from the bottom
