EGR question

Post by 2ndcar on Mon Apr 20, 2009 5:27 pm

Gotta quick question seeing if anyone knows if the pipe that runs from the exhaust manifold to the intake can be blocked off?

Thanks that's what i was thinking but couldn't find anything saying that it could be blocked off there. I just don't feel like taking the intake mani off right now.

check ebay for block off plate for the intake or just make your own. nothing to it. and you can leave the mani on, no reason to take it off.

I saved 5mpg by cleaning mine on my Yota. I was getting 19mpg so I started replacing shit; plugs, wires, cap, rotor, o2 sensor, etc. Didn't change a thing. Took off the egr and saw it was clogged up, cleaned it with whatever I had in the garage and now I'm up to 24mpg! Like I should be.

By blocking it you would be in the same boat as I was. The cpu thinks that it's functioning properly and is dumping that extra fuel to help burn up those gases, so you're running rich wasting fuel and polluting more. I know, If you're running a turbo it most likely means you aren't running a cat so blocking the egr isn't anything comparable, but you aren't losing any power by running a functioning egr because it doesn't function at WOT anyways.

That's a lot of food for thought I know, just bored.

The main reason i was looking at doing it was cuz the nut is rusted into the header.

Thank you. I always say why when people remove the EGR...Like you said it doesnt work at WOT so whats to worry about.

Cut the biotch off and remove the EGR and rest of emissions crap on the car, block off intake manifold with plate and on header side order a plug taper from Nissan to plug the hole on the header.
