Hi,

I've read a few archive threads about removing the EGR system and I was wondering what the actual benefits are, and can the parts still be easily obtained to blank all the holes?

By the way this is for my 85 t16s.

Cheers,

Red

i believe the benifits are that instead of having a certain amount of exhaust gases being recirculated into the inlet for emissions and economy reasons you just have fresh air going in so you can add more fuel therefore having more power. also stops the inlet side of things cokeing up so much. this is all general though and i have no experiance of it on your car.

The best reason to lose it is that it often goes wrong and causes running problems, especially at idle.

This could be the problem with my vert! How do i go about removing it?

Obviously block the exhaust manifold off. But what about the two vacuum pipes? one from the TB and the other from the small screw bit in the inlet manifold.

Also, what about the vacuum unit underneath the TB, how is that blocked off?

Cheers,

Dan

Its on my '88 Vert.

But i'm fairly certain its on my '85 & 86 T16s'. I'll double check today on that one.

It is on my '85 & '86 T16s plus my '88 vert obviously. I have bad idling problems but engine runs and revs fine past 1k.

Need to know how to block off the inlet manifold and the small vacuum nut thung on the inlet manifold wall where it fastens to the cylinder head.

The inlet, just has a blanking plate bolted over the hole,using the egr mounting bolts.For the vac lines just stick a bolt in the vac line and tie strap.Exhaust manifold has a bolt in it.

Can anyone post a list of engines this mod can be done on, please?

I had an EGR by-pass unit on my diesel Rover 75, which made a huge difference to the car's performance.

As I've had EGR problems on my 16v TiD 'vert, I'd like to do something about it. Is the Fiat gasket as far as I can go, though?

Thanks for the info. I'll do it tomorrow after (hopefully) the car passes its re-test.

All you need to do is check that the EGR valve is closed and then blank off the vacuum pipes. Actually removing the EGR valve is not as easy as it sounds and you have the pipe from the exhaust to the valve to blank, which is much easier said than done.
