Why dont you try talking to your tuner, and see if you can have them write you an emission tune just a thought.
Let me know If I did not answer your questions properly :thumb:Subscribed.
SmokerSteve - great idea and nice write up. Thank you!
Now that you did both, removed the PS inner fender AND the turbo, would you now just advise to remove the turbo and forgo the inner fender removal??)I did not remove the fender, only the turbo)
Also, why would you go to all the trouble of tearing down the rig to get to the EGR cooler again to remove the 1/4" washer hole with as little exhaust that is passing through it? Is it because it will still continue to carbon up the egr valve, albeit much more slowly?I only did the work once and I am leaving it the way it is. My egr system was untouched except I had and still have the egr valve electrically unplugged. The reason why I did not delete the egr system and chose to cut the scoop and welded a washer in there is to still pass smog. I have read that if the system is deleted it will trip a "Flow" code. I will then not pass smog. The 1/4" hole is just too keep the code away. I also have the egr valve unplugged, preventing exhaust flow. That trips 2 codes. But I can plug it back in with no codes at all.
Last, you indicated that "if you knew" you would not throw a code, you would block it off completely. Yes. Am I (including myself)right in my studies to say that it is established pretty much that if we block the port fully i.e. delete, then we know we will get a code on the 06?So far. I decided to not block it 100% when I originaly did the work because I would not want to do it again incase I got an "EGR Flow" code.
Comments^^^^^^^^^^Dude - if there was anything improper in the conversation, it would have been me asking the questions!
Okay, so you keep the flow with the hole, and that is only so that when you DO plug the egr back in, you won't throw a code, right?(yes. With the scoop cut out and the 1/4" hole I do not get a code with the egr valve plugged in) It's all a readiness plan for when you have to get smog tested if I am digesting it all correctly. Because I think you are indicating that when you unplug the egr, of course it throws codes, right? (I get 2 codes when I electronically unplug the egr valve.) You just ignore them, right?(Yes. They do not effect my truck) And you run unplugged in order to stop the flow of exhaust altogether? (Yes. This keeps the exhasut from getting in the intake and the intake air in the intake. Since I have the scoop cut out and the valve unplugged, the exhasut just passes over the hole that would normally enter the egr cooler, and goes to the turbo with out iteruption.) Or am I turning all of your work into a ball of twine? :dunno:
