Re: D40 EGR Blank Mod. (Partly Done)
I haven't fitted a bland to my truck yet, Euro3 D40, but did blank my D22 and pretty much every other vehicle I had, but I have a few questions.
I'm not questioning the benefits of blanking it, or the experience of people here, or the results, I'm all in favor of it, but just wondering, a mechanic whom I'd have reckoned to know his stuff, particularly about Nav's and was all in favor of blanking a D22 didn't recommend it for the D40, he said it caused back pressure in the turbo and could cause problems. Anyone heard of, or experienced this???
Any connection between the EGR blank and the expanding turbo pipe???
Is it best to do both of these mods together???
Like I say, I'm not questioning anyone here so please don't take it as such, just a question. If the guy I mentioned hadn't said anything about it I wouldn't have even bothered asking!!!
Personally I can't see anything but benefits for blanking, just wondering what others thought!!!
Last question, I know access is better on the intake manifold side and it's an easier mod, but is it better to blank it on the exhaust side to prevent the **** even getting to the EGR???
