    Default EGR blanking - best place

    Morning all
    where is the best place to blank off the EGR on a 3.2did?

    it seems there are different positions especially when affecting the oxygen sensor?

    what are the opinions?

    Karel, The 'clever people' saying at the exhaust manifold, the pipe from the exhaust going up to the EGR cooler...

    I did mine this weekend, and a 10 minute job become a hour's work.... I battled to get the plate in 'at the bottom / exhaust manifold side' , space problem and also you need to hold the pipe, it's gasket and the blanking plate in place.....

    So I moved my blanking plate to the top of this pipe, at the EGR cooler.... much easier ...

    Hugo, did you manufacture the the blanking plate yourself?
    Do you have to change/cancel settings on the ECU. What is driving experience thus far after blanked off? Thank you for the information.
    Will it be possible to post a photo of where the plate was placed?

    Hi Johan, also worried about ECU, in the end nothing happened on my 2012 3.2 PJS....

    Were I placed it:
    1.) remove plastic engine cover (4 x bolts)
    2.) On driver side you will see EGR pipe connected to cooler and other side of pipe going down...
    3.) Remove metal shield (2 x bolts)....
    4.) Under shield there is 2 x 12mm nuts, remove, be careful to collect the washers...
    5.) On other side of pipe, remove the bolts that hold EGR pipe to exhaust manifold... Be careful to collect gasket...
    6.) Lift EGR pipe of top bolts, including the gasket....
    7.) Fit blanking plate at top, not bottom (bottom very difficult to add plate)....
    8.) Put gasket back at top, add nuts... Put pipe back at bottom , secure them all

    I did a +-100km trip the next day, my best fuel consumption on the freeway at 120-125km/h is/was 10.5km/l, after this it went up to 11km/l......

    Did you consider the resistor mod , far easier.

    I did the same blanking as Hugob at 98000 km on my 2012 3.2 Triton and removed the DPF at the same time. No setting changes. I've done about 13000 km's since and no issues. Just a very potent diesel smoke smell in confined spaces. Consumption and performance improved markedly (consumption improved from 10.1 to 9 l/100km). She now drives like the old Triton I loved so much.
