    EGR Block Off.

    Hi All.

    Anyone have any comments or experience with blanking off the EGR port, or maybe even just reducing the exhaust gas flow, to slow down or eliminate the interior of inlet mainfold becoming a nightmare of blackness and dark evil....!


    Catch Cans....???

    My 2021 Twin Turbo Crafter is about to land on this locked down Island we call home.

    Any feedback or tips would be greatly appreciated...

    Steve.

    A good quality catch can is always a smart idea on a diesel engine. It will help capture a lot of the junk that normally makes its way into the inlet manifold and slowly chokes diesel engines. Have a look at the Mann & Hummel branded Provent catch cans as these are regarded to be the best in the business.

    As for the EGR, you cannot simply block it off on a modern diesel without ECU trickery because the car will have a dummy spit.

    Hi Steve, as Lucas_R said, the engine ECU software has to be changed. If your crafter is under the warranty you’ll lose it. You need to block off the pipe from the cooler into the intake.
