egr removal on 2.5 td di

Postby MONSTER 0NE » Tue Apr 20, 2010 7:00 pm

Hi guys
As some of you may know im fitting the 100ps td engine out of my old van which had all the epic egr stuff, my question is can I get away with removing all of the egr stuff as im using the bosch pump manual pump ? eg the egr valve itself and the other butterfly body and connect the pipe for the intercooler straight to the turbo, as it will make my life plumbing up the intercooler a lot easier and hopefully gain a few extra bhp. Hopefully that makes sense, I can take some pics of the bit im on about if it helps.
Cheers Andrew

As AKE said and any bits (like the butterfly body) you don't want/need should be binned into the back of my van :wink:

It may have escaped your attention, but mine is an EPIC, as it left the factory :!: That throttle body butterfly pivot can wear and cause problems, so could have one rebushed and ready to swap out :wink:

So you still use the EGR then Andy, how come when everyone else removes or blocks theirs off? :?

I fitted a lovely brand new one (for the first and only time) and now my engine warning lamp goes out immediately, like it should :D

If I was to remove it from the circuit, the ECU would log a fault and not only will the engine lamp take 5 seconds to go out (to indicate a fault), but apparently will stop you from carrying out functions like "leakback" trim etc... :wink:

Well I better find a nice piece of steel to block of the egr valve mount on the exhaust manifold then, and start working how to run the intercooler pipes I need to run, mind you need to find a decent large intercooler first :lol: .

Andy you should know that I give you 1st dibs on any epic bits I have, I will keep hold of them till we meet at a show.
