Well I gave in and took the turbo out. I really did not want to but that was the only way I or anybody could get to that last bolt.

The turbo looks lighter than what it really is............ It was a hassle to take it out but it is out. The best way was to take 2 out of the 3 bolts of the alternator and twist the alt so that there is enough room for the turbo and so that the belt is still in place.

I just finished cutting the scoop out. I took pictures of the cutting tools I used and over all. I am in a mental argument on whether to plug it or just finish with cutting the scoop.

If I plug the up-pipe will I get a code for flow??? That is the dilemma I have right now.
I am also thinking of using a washer. It fits nice and snug in the up-pipe and has a 1/4" hole. I would rather completely close the hole.

I will post pictures when I have the truck back together. That will be Sunday.

Please let me know if I will get a code for completely sealing the cooler from the exhaust.


Thank you

From everything I have heard, you will get a code if you completely block it off.
I am going to do the same thing to mine and am going to leave a small hole so that a very small amount of exhaust can still go through.

I think just having the scoop gone will be the most important thing!

You will likely get a soft code (no CEL) for insufficient EGR flow, but it really depends on the strategy. With custom tuning on the SCT, you can turn off the EGR functionality, including those readings.

I think I will weld on the washer with the 1/4" hole.

Do you guys know where the "egr flow" sensor may be?

This is as close as I can get to finding the sensor. Not sure if the EGRVP is what does the work.

It may end up being a group of readings. Not sure. Maybe a tech may come on and share the secret!

It's true that you can turn off the egr with custom tunes but it needs to back to stock tuning for a smog test and it will fail if the CEL is on.

Custom tunes have it like 95% off. I think the reason why is that if it is turned off a code will come up, not sure.

I have not seen any information or tests where you have to return our trucks to stock(depending on the tune) to smog them. If there are no codes, egr system is still along with the cat and minimal or no smoke, you most likely will pass.

I finished the truck around 3 today.

I cut the up-pipe scoop and welded a washer in the hole. I took the turbo off to get to that one bolt I could not get to.

I will post pics soon and wright allot more when I have the energy, long day.

So I have driven the truck arround and no codes!!!! There is less smoke out the tail pipe so that is a plus! also it spools a little faster. All things are good.

I am posting pix right now
