Bump.....

Another question.... After doing the DIY egr delete... Should the up pipe be welded shut??? Any more helpful information on this would be great

Thanks Jeff

Jeff, there are a few ways to accomplish the DIY EGR delete. I assume you are meaning to completely delete the cooler and not just block it off. Some guys will reuse the old EGR cooler and just weld a plate over the EGR cooler to up-pipe flange, and weld a plate over the cooler to intake flange. This effectively seals off the intake side from the exhaust side and allows the coolant to continue to flow through the cooler in its original path. Other guys will cut up the old cooler and use the parts to make the bypass tube out of (as in the tech file section thread you referenced)or also the crackpipe mod. If you go this route, at a minimum you will need a 180* hose and clamps to redirect the coolant from the oil cooler back into the intake manifold coolant port. Pretty much all of the other gaskets needed in this delete are reusable. You can install new intake manifold gaskets if you so choose, and I installed new turbo oil drain tube o-rings when I did mine. All of the exhaust side flange clamps and such are also reusable, no worries there. For the 180* hose I went to an industrial hardware supply and obtained a hydraulic braided stainless hose and some 3/4" heater hose to make the connection. Lastly since I still had my original 75,000 mi. serpentine belt on I installed a belt at this time since so much of the motor was apart, it made it a fairly easy time to do it. Hope this helps you out some.

jeff, here is a little bit of a write-up that i did when i did mine. there is some fab work to be done and aluminum welding. of course you dont have to do it that way i did but it is another option. it worked out really well for me and i have not been too easy on it.

Hey huhner, I've modifying EGR coolers and up pipes for awhile. Since I have done mine, I've had zero problems. I just reuse and modify the person's EGR cooler and up pipe. Then you'll never have to worry about it. I use a TIG welder and stainless material. Plus I have lower EGT, better MPG, and the coolant is cooler.

This way if the smog police ever wanted to examine your egr equipment. It's still there. I read that even just blocking the up pipe, the smog test will read lower emissions than the one that has a working egr system. That EGR system is a waste of money................

I don't like using hoses. Where the bend is at 180 degrees, the coolant, over time, will wear out the walls. Then you'll have to replace the hose again.

Just by blocking the up pipe, you will stop the flow of exhaust gases. However, if the cooler ever started to leak, it can still enter the engine intake.

It only takes me about 2.5 hours to complete. Where's MN? I'm in Washington State.

Also, I'm a Union Steamfitter/Pipe Welder, I work with high pressure/heat steam systems. Like oil companies, hospitals, and other industrial construction.

Get an intake gasket kit. That should have most everything you need, sans an o-ring or two.

I just did this last weekend. This is what I did to my cooler..



And here's the hose...


I guess if the hose starts to leak around the bend, as previously mentioned, then I'll have to come up with something better. But I just couldn't turn this hose down since it had the perfect bend formed into it.
