About to build bulletproof 6.0... What is wrong with a simple disc to block off EGR?

Hello again Friends..

Look, from help and research I am convinced that a completely new EGR Delete Maniford is the best, but almost too expensive as it need AIR MAIL to Australia.. And then the core has to be AIR MAILED back Too expensive probably. And you cannot go by ground mail as that is 3 months by Ship...

So for a normal duty economy tuned tow vehicle doing about 8000 lbs off-road in the Outback, my 07 KR CC DRW, what is wrong with just blocking off the EGR with a disc under it??? No exhaust gas through the cooler manifold, cooler does not get that hot, cooler just stays at radiator temperature...

I know I am a MAD INVENTER, but what is wrong with my thinking here...

Seems too bloody simple, I know I must be missing something..

Nothing is wrong with your thinking, man. Mine has been that way for 20k miles and since its been blocked, I have not had ANY problems with the EGR cooler! I went through 3 of them prior since I tow @ 20k lbs... Good luck!

Just remember to have the internal scoop removed as well to allow for better flow to the turbo.

Thank you Guys, I may go with a disc under the flange, and if I have problems then build that Mini EGR Delete goodie... Only I will try and find maybe some stainless braided high pressure hose of some kind to stand the heat, maybe even insulate it..

One thing but, what is the Scoop you are talking about for the Turbo?? And what was it designed for? Why?

Best regards to you Blokes in American... We in Australia are with you!!

This is found under the short "T" that connects to the EGR cooler.


Some people will remove the whole piece.


Covered up and ready to install.
