E.G.R. Dose it make a differance ?

Postby Tomactroop » Sun Oct 31, 2010 7:21 pm

Im looking at some extractors for my 03 1hz troopy & have noticed some have EGR fittings, some dont. So whats the pros & cons with the EGR ? I no its supposed to help burn unspent gasses in the inlet manifold, but the extractors with out the EGR fitting are a bit cheaper (not much). Whats to be gained by blocking it ? :confused:

Im not going to worry about extractors for now, instead Im getting the diff ratios matched to the 33s. I just recived my first speeding fine, 59 in a 50 zone & Im $150 lighter.:policecar:
But I would appreciate advice on the EGR
cheers

EGR is for emission control laws, only the later 1HZs are equipped with it. EGR equipped cruisers seem to get alot of carbon build up in the inlet manifold and under the right conditions can make a gurgling noise through the snorkel (Light throttle when EGR is open). biggest advantage is not having it carbon up, biggest disadvantage would be the fines if the EPA looks and notices the emission control device has been disabled.
I dont come here alot.
Probably because the Lux is off the road and I dont have much time with the two kids.

Thanx for your advice. As soon as I sort out these diffs, I'll start chasing more ponys from the motor, & I'll begin with EGR equiped extractors :biggrin:

Yes, Exhaust Gas Recirculation is emissions and needs to be left in if it's there now...
