EGR blockoff rage
so yesterday, i get off work at 8:30am, and decided im gonna wait a few hours to start the process (note- i was home by 9). i start tearing into the truck at 1pm, call one of my buddies who wanted to help, and he shows up at 1:30. well after fighting my BPD oil cooler relocation to get the EGR cooler out, i literally hurl the thing out into the yard (i was mad/tired/irritated) when it finally comes out. so we then start fighting with the new up pipe, which unlike the instructions, is a complete pain in the you know what to get unbolted up top because of heat shields. getting it out involved lots of cursing and about 5 extensions from under the truck
so we get the up pipe in, everything bolted back down, and start fighting the turbo back in, which may as well be like reverse birthing a child. might i also add that if you have the BPD oil cooler relocation, XDP's hose uncluded with the EGR blockoff is too short. gotta trim and reuse the old. so we get it all in, i sit down on my sidewalk for a break, and decide to look at the old cooler as im explaining to one of my friends what its for.......when i notice its a BPD internally blocked off EGR cooler.
much rage and words were said that i am not proud of. oh, and ive got a leak at my up pipe......gotta try to tighten that today.
