  • Blocking egr...

    OK I know this has been asked and answered a thousand times. I have search the internet for the past hour and have not found a good article saying why I should block the EGR on my turbo saturd. Can someone please explain why I should do this? I remember reading that when turbo, you should block, but I can't remember why. I know some people say that it cures hesitation but hell, I can't even get traction in 2nd gear so I don't think I have a problem with hesitation. I thought EGR lowered EGTs?

    You can tune it to use fuel to lower egt's... leaving the exhaust in the exhuast pipe and not putting carbon build up in the intake manifold.

    I personaly havn't used one for years, but it you want to, then go ahead. I don't see any reason other the build up to not use it.

      Cool, yeah I'll go ahead and do it, it's only like a $0.35 mod anyway.

        O.K. so here my question I'm planning a turbo build for my car and I want to block the E.G.R. but won't I need a Simulator to not set the SES. I saw someone taking about these simulators before but I want to know where to get one.

          Why are you worried about throwing a SES? Do you have to pass emisisons? If so, leave it plugged in, pass emissions, unplug when you leave.

            +1 to that! ^^^

            there is a is a thing that tricks it to think it's working but, i've only seen it advertised on grand am and prix's. but, it was assumed if it worked on that gm it would work on a saturn \. but, i never heard anyone using it.

            But, i block mine and keep the egr plugged in to prevent other gay issues. but, i still get a code for low flow. which is funny it gets no flow. either way block it and plug it back in for emissions time. just give it a drive cycle or two for the code to clear.

              Well I geuss Im a weird Saturn tuner because I CAN'T STAND IT when the SES is on but thats what I get for being a mechanic and knowing how to fix them. I mean I can't tell a customer to get used to it its a Saturn. Although I wish I could sometimes.

                  Well for one if you don't block the EGR, you will be boosting the EGR canister, haha

                    I think you might be thinking of the "EVAP Canister" lol

                    There is a company that sells nice CNC'd aluminum EGR block off plates for both styles of EGR (vacuum and electric) comes with a gasket and hex head bolts...I just got one the other day...I think I bought it shipped for under $25
