EGR Options???

Just wanted to know what options I have with the EGR, I have heard a lot about them going bad. I have DJ's tunes. Do they turn the EGR off? If not, can I have it turned off through the tune?

Hopefully I can turn it off through the tune and that would eliminate the potential problem. Let me know your thoughts.

Yep, DJ turns the EGR function off in his tunes, which solves half the problem. The EGR cooler still gets heat soaked from the exhaust entering and "dead heading" in the cooler. This can still cause the EGR cooler to rupture since the heat just continues to build instead of flow through.

So how do I fix that so my EGR doesn't go bad?

I've never seen an actual write up on it. If I did I would have bookmarked it since this question is asked often. Your up pipe has the scoop in it, so...if you diy you're gonna want to cut that "scoop" out then block off exhaust gases from getting into the cooler. OR, you can buy the 165 dollar up pipe from elite that doesn't have the scoop and they throw in the block off plate.
