Ok, I've seen a few inquires on this issue, but no definite answers on it.
Has anyone tried the EGR Block off plates with coolant bypass?
I think this is the way I want to go. One, due to warranty, and two, emission testing every year. If I were to do the coolant bypass; what hoses on the coolers do I have to disconnect so I can re-rout the coolant lines (capping them off at the coolers) and re-routing the hose straight from and back into the engine, skipping the coolers?
What my thoughts were, I'd take a section of coolant hose and bypass the coolers, running a new section of hose to the two points on the engine. I'd then just cap off the points where the lines ran into the coolers. I'd also obviously block off the coolers with plates.
Does this sound like I'm on the right path???
Is there someone who could put up a diagram showing which lines I have to re-rout from the coolers when I disconnect the hoses, and then bypass the coolers.
I've read that the blocker plates alone will not do the trick and there is still a propensity that the coolers could burst and leak coolant into the motor leading to major issues!!!
This is my best option I think...
Any opinions or ideas?
