on the 4.7 there is a plate to install and then we plug the intake manifold. I assume its the same on the 5.7

Re: Anyone cover their EGR on a 5.7?

i wanna know what this does to those that dont run an aftermarket tuner. ive had several cars where the EGR was removed and thrown in the trash with no ill affects. im wondering what it will do to the jeep.

The Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) Valve sends inert gas (i.e., exhaust) back to the intake manifold. The purpose of this is to lower the combustion chamber temperature, thereby impeding the formation of certain oxides of nitrogen (NOx) which form at higher temperatures. The exhaust gas lowers the oxygen content of the incoming fuel-air charge, so the combustion happens at a lower temperature than it would without EGR. These oxides of nitrogen are attibuted to the formation of smog.

The Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) Valve admits oily vapors from the engine sump into the intake manifold. Years ago, these blow-by and oily vapor gases were vented directly to the atmosphere. Now they are burned off in the combustion process within the cylinders. It has the secondary function of gunking up everything that the vapors come in contact with. This includes your intake manifold, the MAP sensor diaphragm, the back side of the throttle body and throttle body butterfly, and the intake valves and runners, just to name a few.

The EGR valve is tied into the elecronic engine control system, but I don't think the PCV valve is. Means you probably need to exercise some care when adding or subtracting components that the engine's brain expects to see functioning.

Aahh...the price of progress and going green...

Re: Anyone cover their EGR on a 5.7?

Why not just mount the Catch Can somewhere else, leave the EGR Valve alone, and spare the expense of a tuner (unless you have one, or want one) and then the cost of a CMR tune on top of it?

Thanks JG........... Also works with the 5.7 Hemi's but only with the Billet Tech EGR Block off (product code 5007) 05-08 only.
I bought a 6" x 6" x 3/4" L-bracket at Home Depot. Drilled it at both ends and mounted the catch can on the back side bolt of the cross brace over the engine. Catch can sits back near the PCM.
You'll need more hose and hose clamps though. Do a thread search on this forum for some good pics. That's basically how I did it (mine is an '08 also). No need to touch the EGR valve.
