EGR and Cooler replacement
« on: October 03, 2017, 03:41:31 pm »
Just been quoted $3100 to replace my EGR and Cooler on my Touareg 3.0 TDI - around $3100!!
Ouch.
Any other options - for example - after market parts, or removing altogether and running without it?
Really don't want to have to fork out that much if I can find a good alternative.
Thanks

Its a 2011 150kW, but done 195ks.
A local European car service company in Mount Maunganui. Usually pretty good but was surprised at the quote this time.

Is it possible to delete EGR system completely and code out of ECU?

I know on the really old tech T4 diesels that's really common to do, no electronics though as a mechanical system.

Not sure if this is relevant to your car.
My quick read noted that if you have a dpf it is not suitable.

Some cars require EGR to do DPF regen as they use the EGR to increase cylinder temps.

EGR delete would also require a DPF delete then.
A mate of mine just had this done on his 125kw Passat due to DPF failure.
Requires a new downpipe for the DPF delete, EGR blanking plate and a good tune. It will probably end up setting you back about the same amount of $$$, if not a bit more.
The good part it, you gain a fair bit of power and torque. The bad part it that you will spit out a bit of smoke under heavy acceleration. But because these engines are already pretty clean burning anyway, it's really only a little bit.
