There is no EGR pieces to take off an 06. The EGR is an in-cylinder solution that is achived with valve timing, injection timing, turbo, and injection event control. Major dollars to make a difference.

Better results can be achived by using a different cam, a programmer to adjust timing, and a different turbo.

Yep, no actual EGR... Like said a Cam makes the biggest difference, followed by a programmer to advance the timing (Smarty or Smarty Jr are the best).. .and from there he should be fine with the stock turbo.

Unless your making 800+hp I doubt it would be worth it.

Except for the 2 mpgs you can get... Not to mention you should have cleaner oil as well.

That would be nice but I dunno how much effort would be required to get those mpgs. Are there many people who have been successful at deleting the in clynder EGR of the 04.5+?

Putting in a PDR or Helix 2 cam is all that needs to be done to remove the in-cylinder EGR. That alone seems to be good for about 2 mpgs... Anything from the timing is an added bonus.

The cams sell for about $488.

Yep, pretty easy to do the swap..

From what I gather its good for about 3hp too But the turbo spools sooner, the EGT's drop about 75*, but the main reason is the MPG's.

Its on my list of things to do, but it wont happen anytime soon...
