Did you just sandwich a plate of aluminum between the EGR and the Intake ? Or did you just blocked off the hole on the intake where the EGR attach to the intake and left the EGR plugged in and hanging somewhere?madmax said:All EGR does is introduce part of your exhaust back into your engine for reburning. I made a block off plate from some spare aluminum from a bike project ( 25 gauge, I think). Some metal shears, some drilling, some hi-temp RTV, shazam. For the crankcase vent (drivers side valve cover), I used a stand alone valve cover filter. Unfortunately, due to the PCV valve, you can't totally eliminate ALL the potential carbon-build up :banghead: At least you can minimize it.
Mine is made from 1/8 inch steel. I used a furniture bracket. Cut, drill, sand smooth. Installed with 2 gaskets one on each side. Mine is a electronic. The pic is from making one for my customers truck. But it made from the other half of the bracket. Waste not want not.andrew728 said:That was fast !!!!. Lol. One last question. How think is the aluminum piece? I was thinking it was going to be 1/8" thick but yours looks like almost 1 1/2"

Your looking for the EGR?andrew728 said:I have been looking and can't find it !!!. I am looking on the passenger side. I replaced the Dis.Cap and rotor and wanted to take care of this while I had her open.

What is your engine vin? X didn't have one.
Good. That's one less mod I need to do. I guess I can live without know what I have.chevymaher said:Okay that solves that yours doesn't have a EGR. A vin search will tell you the vans options it came with. Unfortunately the free searches got greedy and want money for it now.
