Thanks for leading me to right derection... The pictures are scary I think these pictures needs to be sent to GM. :rofAll you have to do is block the EGR and have a programmer to block the CEL
here is a great write uphttp://www.duramaxforum.com/forum/diy-tech-discussion/15963-how-egr-block-off-lmm.html
Stop giving out dis-info, we have already been over thisMe personally change the exhaust, do the PCV re-route and forget worring about the EGR block off plate at least until you are out of warranty.
EGR functions mostly from back pressure when there is no back-pressure (open exhaust)it seldom opens.
And if it does open it is never more than 40%, and that is for only for a few seconds when you are under load.
With the stock exhaust the egr opens pretty much all the time, all the way to100% under load.
I monitor the egr functions with my Edge Insight.
In this picture I was crusing @ 45 mph as you can see the egr was at 0% open. Stock exhaust the reading would be around 40-60% open.
This is my opinion on the new body styles,
Unless you are making the Dmax into a full time racer, forget worring about blocking the egr it is not worth the hassle, the cut fingers,hands, bleeding and the time. :drink
I will continue giving out correct and true info, and you will continue giving waisted time info because you did the block and really saw pretty much no gains at all, but want others to do as you did.Stop giving out dis-info, we have already been over this
Keep MY stupid suggestions and opinions to myself? I think you will find yourself in the very far minority on this site and every other diesel site.I will continue giving out correct and true info, and you will continue giving waisted time info because you did the block and really saw pretty much no gains at all, but want others to do as you did.
"Waist their time".
By just doing what I suggest there will not be much egr function and if there was any issues they would not show anything for over 300K if the engine lasts that long.
Get over yourself. :rof
And quit freaking out these people new to diesels and keep your stupid suggestions and opinions to yourself. horse poo
And I`ll will continue passing on what truly is going on in the real world of diesels.
DO you get it this time "I doubt it"
I HAD to block mine. It was being pushed open. Just so the reading public knows.As for backpressure opening it. I dont think thats 100% correct.
