Looks great Daryl. Whats the point for the sheild over the stock I/M? Looks perhaps? Did you pull off the egr valve? Or just have it shut off w/ your tune? If pulled off= What'd you do w/ the coolant connections? As I can't see that in the pic's.
Thanks, I wrapped the IM with insulation and put the shield over it to try and reduce the heat from the radiator. Not sure how much of a diff it made, but it made me feel better! LOL.

I completely removed the EGR valve and made a block off plate for the coolant and exhaust holes. I will take a pic of it tomorrow and post. Yes you have to turn it off in the tune and also turn off the code it will throw for the egr not being connected.

Wow you made that header? I've never seen one like that for a Duratec. Looks like a old shorty header for the zetec, but I'm sure it's way better lol.
Thanks for the compliment, actually, it is anything but short. Here's a pic. The primary tubes are 34 inches long before the collector, and with the collector there is total about 42 inches of header before the flex pipe.

Wow that looks fantastic! What are the primary tube diameters? Either way it should make great power and torque! I applaud you sir on every level for making that

Thank you, the tubes are 1-5/8 O.D. and the collector is 2.5 O.D. with FS Stealth 2.5 exhaust.

I did put it on a dyno when I first put the header on. It made 140whp on an otherwise stock 2.0. I have done a lot more tweaking since then, but I dont plan on dyno again.

Here is a pic of the EGR blockoff plate from an earlier question. It is fairly simple to make one as long as you use a piece of metal that is flat and smooth, and is thick enough to not warp. This one has been on there for more than a year with no issues. The original EGR bolts are too long, so I spaced them out with washers temporarily. My temporary became permanent as I forgot all about it. lol.

So Daryl, What'd you do w/ the coolant line going to the egr? And I have a tune w/ the egr turned off, So if I disconnect the plug is there going to be a code? I've noticed the inside of the intake manifold is a lot lot cleaner w/ the egr turned off & no more cleaning the TB w/ tb cleaner it free up the tb stickyness. I pulled the TB off to look down the I/M last month & super clean & no sticky TB either.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I just plugged the coolant line. No issues.

As for the code, I believe there was a code when I unplugged the EGR. Even though the EGR was disabled, the ECU is still aware of its existence. The best thing to do is go ahead and unplug it, write down the code that you get and it should be easy for your tuner to turn it off for you.

I agree, I love having a clean IM. No more oil/hot crankcase fumes from PCV, no more exhaust from EGR=cooler air=runs better. I used to have the same TB stickiness, but no more!

you should sell that header. If ever consider it, let me know, my company might be interested in distribution and financing.
