    Default 3.2 Sport, EGR and blanking plates

    Hi all,

    I have a 2012 Pajero Sport 3.2D on 140 000km. I have already had the CAT removed. I am looking into blocking the EGR.

    Where can I get blanking plates?
    Do any settings or anything have to be changed after balnking?
    If I dont clean the inlet manifold will the carbon eventually come loose and clean?

    My main aim is not in performance or fuel consumption but on incrasing engine life. Is blocking the EGR the correct thing to do?

    I made my blanking plate myself, use your gasket as a template and buy yourself a putty knife with a big enough blade. Also bring lots of patience

    My 2.5 didn't need any settings changed but can't comment on your 3.2.

    The 3.2 doesn't need any settings changed at all.

    Do it asap that solenoid thing on the egr goes faulty causing hot exhausts gasses with the carbon going inside your engine. Can cost you plenty.

    I want to do the same.

    I see that there are 3 options.

    1. Insert blanking plate between manifold and pipe.
    2. Remove the pipe and ERG valve and fit 2 blanking plates - on manifold and on where ERG valve was.
    3. Cut the wire that control the ERG valve.

    Option 1 seems to be the easiest and quickest?

    Do you need to do anything else? Have read that some people do the following:

    "The EGR cooling may cause symptoms like a broken head gasket if it fails, therefore, it is recommended to discard it by adding a bypass hose."

    EDIT: I see that he mention that some DiD's don't have the cooling pipes setup as described.

    Full DIY here: http://www.pajero.guru/how-to-remove...-nm-2001-2006/

    If the ERG valve is removed as described you will have open electrical plug. Will this not cause issues? If not will simply removing the plug stop ERG from working (unless it will remain open when connected)

    Is the putty knife used to make the blanking plate or to clean/remove the gasket?

    Its blade becomes the blanking plate.

    I just unplugged my EGR. No CEL occured. If you plug in the computer it picks it up as an error, but it does not affect anything.


    It is closed under normal conditions, and the solenoid pulls it open.


    Just strap the plug to the injector harness to keep it away from the heat of the tappet cover.

    Hi guys
    Was at the mechanic today and he told me the previous versions had an vacuum that work with the egr and mine was electronic… I drive a 2012 Triton 3.2 (facelift). Should I do blank off my egr I need to overwrite the settings on the computer they said(R2500). Last year we blanked off my fathers 2010 3.2 and no problems

    Im having my intake manifold cleaned and EGR blanked on Monday by Henk. Would also like to know if it is necessary to bypass the cooler?

    I made use of the resistor mod which keeps the EGR closed. I am still planning to remove the cooler and bypass though

    Hi Rudu

    did you notice anything different with your motor when you did this? Reason I ask is I tried this on my 2011 pajero and when I turn the motor off there is a noticeable overrun for a second plus.

    I havent used blanking plates.

    Cheers

    From this guide they bypass the cooling, is it really necessary?
    Surely it's a closed circuit and doesn't make a diff... if anything it's better to leave it untouched.

    ok thanks. I'll wait till I can get proper plates made up. The overrunning makes me uncomfortable.

    I think the engine may take longer to get to temperature if the cooling system is still there but the hot exhaust gas is not being circulated.
    Maybe it is negligible though

    Hallo Eight
    Just like to know if you are happy with the egr blanking and if you perhaps know if you have an electronic egr or a vacuum one?

    Hi Roela, i only had it blanked on Monday. So far im happy. The car seems to be a bit better on fuel, about 1km/l. Cant notice much diff in power but seems to keep its speed on highway with less effort if that makes sense. I dont know what type of egr I have.

    That's great to hear, I also have the 2012 3.2did motor, but it puzzles me why its not the same egr system.
    If you would please pm me your mechanics number that would be great, I need to get a second opinion

    Has anyone tried the SPVi EGR controller?
    Been looking at it from Australia.
    Seems to be working well for the guys down under.
