Hey guys i can't seem to find where to block the EGR so is someone could post some pics up or even some instructions where it is? I think i have found it is it on the drivers side close to the front of the motor and has a steal pipe that runs around the front of the motor on to the manifold? don't really want to go pulling the wrong things apart and get the wrong thing, thanks for any help.

EGR blocking off on exhaust side of 2.5L d40

No codes, works great, stacks more power, spools faster, Fuel acconomy has improved 100km per tank.

Thanks mate your a champ, you or anybody wouldn't happen to know the dimensions of the plate and holes would you? I work fly in fly out so would be handy to be able to make one in the work shop while i'm at work! thanks mate.

I've been over the Manuel and can't see why the EGR valve can't just be unplugged. According to the Manuel, the normal state (when power is off) is for the valve to be closed.

Several photos attached:

EGR Valve Location (Cover Removed). I took the cover off the top so the location of this guy could be seen more easily.

EGR Valve Unplugged - Closeup. Nothing here by Eric Clapton, but the plug from the ECM (that's what the Manuel calls it) can clearly be seen to be not connected any more.

EGR Valve Location Showing Electrical Connection (Cover Intact). Taken while standing against the right hand front guard, you can see the yellow handle of the oil dipstick in the foreground and just above it, the unplugged EGR.

I'm going to drive home with it disconnected and will let ya'll know how many times the car farts on the way. I've already started the car and idled it, but haven't gotten it back up to normal operating temps yet.

you can't unplug it because ecu monitors the connection and also receives feedback from the valve. unplugging will just bring up error code and possibly limp mode.

Would be good to see how you go with this. I'm looking to do the mod to my '10 D22, still unsure whether or not there's a butterfly to worry about, so if you go ok with just unplugging it from the ECM I'll just do that.
