Question Anyone cover their EGR on a 5.7?

I need to install a Catch can, and in my research I see to buy the bracket you would need to cover/cap your EGR outlet/inlet eliminating the line. Anyone do this? What are the advantages and disadvantages? I know there are a lot of other places I can mount it, I just want to match the bracket and CC if possible, and it seems eliminating the EGR may eliminate a little heat-soak on my intake temps ...maybe not? Thanks JG



link for cap

http://www.custombilletstore.com/product_p/5007.htm

from their site

Check out the new Z Mount Billet Technology Catch Can Mount. This bracket makes accessing your catch can a breeze. Works with your 6.1 Hemi including the Jeeps GC SRT8. Also works with the 5.7 Hemi's but only with the Billet Tech EGR Block off (product code 5007) 05-08 only.

Re: Anyone cover their EGR on a 5.7?

Thanks Scott...can you tell me a little about what that does? EGR is Exhaust Gas Recirculator, right? that is why I am doing this...the CMR! Johan said I have a $hit load of knock, and I should get a catch can, clean my TB and do come more logs. Only used 89 and 91 in my Jeep, so he thinks something needs some "cleaning".

Re: Anyone cover their EGR on a 5.7?

I am interested in this as well. Are there any benefits to this other than getting rid of the faulty egr valve? Any performance gains? Long term down-sides?

Is there only the CMR tune that works?

Re: Anyone cover their EGR on a 5.7?

I had the Z-Bracket ground down to clear the EGR valve.. if you don't grind the bracket, it will hit the EGR valve or as you mentioned, you can opt to buy the kit.

the egr recirculates exhaust gas back into the intake manifold to continue to burn off "bad stuff" that normally would make it to the atmosphere or the cats. Its putting HOT GASES back into your intake air...so yes...it helps to lose that biatch...IMO

Brad I would be nervous about passing emissions in CA unless you don't mind doing some wrench work before every smog check
