EGR Up pipe

does anyone have a write up on removing the EGR up pipe? i just ordered the cooler block off plate from elite diesel and i want to pull the up pipe off to beat out the scoop, unless you all think its not needed.
anyway, if anyone has a write up that would be a great help!

thanks,

-Aaron

You want to start by removing the passenger tire and then the wheel well, remove turbo down pipe. Spray Wd-40 on the 4 nuts holding the uppipe and let it penatrate the rust. You need about 2' worth of extensions for your ratchett. It takes a 13mm socket on the nut and a 10mm wrench to hold the bolt. I cut the Y off so there is no heat transfer to the cooler and then cut the scoop out and welded a plate over the opening. I cut the flange off of the Y and wlded a round plate over the opening so it blocks the opening to the cooler.

I doubt you will be able to beat out the scoop. Get a torch or sawzall either one will work. You do not need to cut the Y or T out of the pipe. There is no significant heat transfer just make sure that disc is welded in place and you are good to go. I used my IR therometer to check the temps of the EGR cooler after I modded mine, there was no heat transfer.

You need to remove the scoop. Take the pipe to an exhaust shop and let them cut it out for you.
