a new EGR delete question

4 posts in this topic

while i am waiting for my starter to arrive,  i have decided to keep tinkering and get rid of the EGR system all together.

i am either going to make an emulator or order one.

i just want to get my facts straight.  the emulator takes the place of the solenoid that open and closes the EGR valve.

so would my smart be a little dumb and think the EGR system was still there if i just unbolted the EGR solenoid, left it pluged in to the harness and wired tied it out of the way?

( to make a long story short, i would try using the factory EGR solenoid as the emulator)

There is far too much work making a suitable pipe to replace EGR valve.

I think EGR solenoid need the spring action from the valve to work but might be wrong.

 

Easiest and most reliable EGR delete solution is simply blanking off exhaust supply but make sure to clean EGR valve first.

Between the EGR valve body and the EGR cooler (has 2 coolant hose connected to it, a silver-ish pipe that connects to the turbo on the other side).
