    Hey guys.. I baught a new motor for my car two days ago, and I noticed today that the egr system is different on the new motor compared to my old one...
    Here are some pics..

    This is a picture of the old engine...

    And here's a picture of the new one..

    And a better one..

    I don't have the intake manifold from the engine I just got because I was going to use the one from my old engine.. but, how am I suposed to hook up the egr when it's going not the same on both engine?? It might hook right up to the old intake manifold and if it does, how should I go about plugging the holes on the exhaust manifold.

    I hope i'm making sence.. Anyway.. need some help as soon as possible..

    looks like you have a jdm engine, that has an internal egr tube(from what i remember) i dont know how to help you as i have never dealt with that yet, but someone on here will chime in.

    nope not JDM
    this is an interesting problem you have here. i've never seen the setup in the first picture. you must have one of the rarer GE motors, like the first ones that came out. i would think that the tube should work on either intake manifold.

    so, the egr should hook up to my old engines intake manifold.. and then I just get a Egr Block off plate...

    On my last two celicas, they both had the external egr pipe. Um... will there be any headaches changing the intake manifold over?

    How does removing the whole egr system affect the car? Would it be a good decision to remove instead of hassling with it? I could easily get those plugs made.

    Spoon- it really depends on your countries Smog laws if any- if you have to go in for a smog check w/out the EGR setup- you will Fail-

    If removed it just gives you a little boost in performance- but if you can get a JDM ECU, the non-egr setup may pull you a few more horses. :lol:

    hum.. yeah we have a smog test in vancouver.. it's called a aircare test here though. :D

    I guess ill just use the egr system on my old engine. I just need to block off the internal egr pipe with an egr blocker.

    Any, thanks for the help guys.

    Although if you know someone at a shop, they may look past the fact that you've blocked off the egr.

    And, if your car is an 86 or older, in Ontario anyway...you don't need an emissions test because it's considered a "classic"

    mines an 87 :S

    I would have to check at the aircare centre and see what they say. Maybe nextyear I dont have to take the test.

    I don;t have an egr system on mine and it runs just fine. I don;t have to pass aircare here though
