How do I effectively eliminate the egr on an isx engine
how do i eliminate the egr on an isx engine?
Is this a worthwhile discussion?
There are numerous shops that will take the EGR/DPF off and reprogram the ECM to make it a non EGR system. Just look on the Internet and you'll find someone who will do it. Just remember that you are breaking all EPA rules regarding emissions. The legality may vary from state to state as they enforce the rules.
I went the PDI route. Full-Tilt (they do the exhaust manifolds for Pittsburgh Power) also has options now with a bully dog programmer that works better than PDI as everytime someone hooks to ECM on PDI program you loose it! I'd call Full-Tilt
Without actually removing it I have effectively eliminated it by unplugging it. 400,000 miles unplugged without any EGR problems, no black soot on my trailer and lower egts. Only problem is that I have to plug it back in before they put the engine on the computer for any reason. Then it shows numerous codes of EGR valve having been inoperative, but that it is now operating properly. Then I have to unplug in it again. This is on an '04 ISX.
Gee, this plug must have come loose! Plug it back in and you are legal.
I called Pittsburgh Power Quoted me $8,500.00 to remove egr, replace manifold, and turbo. They are booked up until November. I have had mine unplugged for 350,000 miles works fine gained 6 tenths, & no more smoke.
The EGR "died" on my ISX in the closed position almost 500,000 miles ago. I also installed a steel plate "block" where the EGR tube connects to the intake manifold about 50,000 miles prior to the EGR dying. My ISX has effectively been a non-EGR variety for most of its 848,000 miles. Total cost..... about $15 and an hour of my time. And Cummins could care less.
My programmer guy will gut your ISX emission system , give you power, and fuel economy.
You will not be able to see anything was done to your truck, it will look totally legal.
PM me and I will send you his info, and I'm pretty sure it won't be 8 grand.
all you need to spend is a phone call to find out
i did my isx new 5 trucks with cm2250 isx with these guys Cummins DPF EGR SCR delete tuning
well, what can i say beside that i am super happy. gained from 0.75 to 1.1 MPG.
everything runs perfect. i kept the original cummins vgt turbo, and only deleted the aftertreatment systems.
i also did some older detroits (egr only and vnt delete), and i was more than happy.
Grant with Olson Diesel LLC. Iv worked with PDI, Pittsburg Power, Bully Dog guys and 99% still prefer Diesel Spec INC. custom tuning. If your in the market for a Delete solution shoot me a call-text-email anytime.
