EGR tube for vortec V8

EGR tube for vortec V8

Postby markmitch [OP] » June 1st 2013, 5:12pm

Well I got the V8 installed and there is this tube that goes from the exhaust manifold (pass side) to the intake manifold for the EGR and mine was stripped on the manifold end so I had to order one. Its either order it from Rock Auto and wait or pay 50 bucks more locally. So by the time I get it the engine swap will be complete except for that tube. I may be able to block the holes and still start it but why waste my time and energy to have to take it apart again to install the tube and clear the codes I will probably get from doing it that way. Wish me luck!

Normally I would say ditch EGR, but you are going to have a hell of a time getting that thing into CA as it is, so I would keep it :) Good Luck!
