sleepyboy I meaning him, but it looks like you already did, and your right but all I had were "big o' pliers" at the time lol

Whitebread Post #88

Unless you meant you?

In that case, you may want change "Big ole' pliers or equivalent" to 1-1/16.

On the zx5 the flared nut on the exhaust side of the egr tube is 1-1/16.

The bung you left in the exhaust mani (circled below) is 1".





I removed both and used the plug "joesperformance" recommended in post #87. To me it was easier and looks much cleaner.

sleepyboy You should give him some rep for helping you

Whitebread Just thought id update my experience with this.

I've had my egr deleted per "joesperformance" instructions and it worked flawlessly. I capped the bung on the exhaust manifold, left the valve where it was, and moved the vacuum lines off the valve and back to the reference port.

No check light, no studder, and mpg has been restored. Big thanks goes out to joesperformance for helping me get that straightened out.

joesperformance pic of vacuum line moved from top of EGR Valve to the square box....





pic of which port to use.... very simple, remove vacuum line from top of EGR Valve and plug straight onto square box and done.... make sure u leave the harness plugged onto square box otherwise will not work....

ITS THE REF PORT THAT YOU NEED....

Whitebread Rep for you sir, great post.

I will be completing this sometime this week.

joesperformance correct, I didn't bother with a EGR block off plate, I just left my EGR valve bolted on and just moved the vacuum line from it, saved some money, as long as no vacuum going to EGR Valve then it stays closed....

do everything as stated in this post, remove EGR valve, remove EGR pipe, block off EGR valve hole on IM and block hole on Exhaust where u remove the EGR pipe..... then just move the vacuum line from the top of the EGR Valve itself over to the square box that was attached to the EGR pipe by 2 rubber hoses and your done.... ill get u a pic in a few of where to hook the vacuum line from EGR Valve to on the black box....

if there's no NAPA near you, u can also go to O Reilly or Autozone and use the part number from this pic, its what I used and had no problems....



PIC OF PLUG ITSELF, I LIKE THIS PLUG, CUZ IT USES JUST A STANDARD 3/8" DRIVE RATCHET OR EXTENSION END TO INSTALL, NO SOCKET OR WRENCH NEEDED.... NO TAP OR PASTE OR THREAD LOCKER OR ANYTHING IS NEEDED ON THE THREADS, I HAND SCREWED MINE IN AND NO LEAKS AT ALL, AND I CAN PUT IT IN AND OUT AS NEEDED WITH NO TOOLS BASICALLY....




HERE IT IS INSTALLED ON MY HEADER, ITS ON THE RIGHT HEADER TUBE, ITS THE SHINEY PLUG....

Whitebread So to be sure i understand you, i'll still need

EGR delete plate
EGR gasket
A cap or bolt for the EGR bung on the header or a M22x1.5mm threaded plug for the exhaust EGR outlet (NAPA Part # 704-1048 works OK)

Basically follow the first few steps, like in the first few steps in the op.

joesperformance It didn't effect my mpg at all. I got to test mpg in 3 steps. Stock. Egr system removed. And long tube header cat delete. I'm still getting 28 to 30 mpg in town and 32 to 34 mpg on highway.
