Default EGR Bung

ok so im thinking about getting the ebay headers, I know you have to get the EGR bung welded on, now im thinking about doing the install myself, but my question is can i have an exhaust shop install an egr bung befoer i do the install? I know it'd be easier to have the shop take care of it but im not dealing with my car being in a shop of any type anymore.

Default Re: EGR Bung

You can't buy an egr bung like you can an O2 sensor bung....your two options are weld a nut that fits the egr tube to the header in the exact spot you need it, but that has to be welded while the header is in place to make sure its perfect. The other option is to have a tube welded on the middle runner, and run a high heat flex tube for the egr instead of the factory egr tube. I went the second route because it was just easier, and has worked great for me so far.

No, if you do the flex tube it can be done off the car...if you do the nut and factory egr tube it has to be done on the car

I'm asssuming this is what I must do to use the headers I picked up here...

http://my6thgen.org/showthread.php?t=2014

Where do I get said flexible tubing and exactly what needs to be welded to the center tube of I'm assuming the rear header and where would I get that as well? I'd like to have as many ducks lined up as possible before I start to avoid as much down time as possible.

Thanks in advance...

Default Re: EGR Bung

basically, you have to have a piece of stainless steel tube welded to the center runner. It should be directed from the center runner, heading towards the drivers side towards the EGR. Only needs to be about 2" tops, just enough to get the high heat flex hose(which you can pick up at any autozone or pepboys) secured to it with a hose clamp. Run that hose to the EGR in place of your factory EGR tube and your good to go.

I wish I had taken a picture of mine before I installed, because where the hose sits and where the tube is welded is under the upper intake manifold so I can't get a picture of it.
