    Well I did go with a 3" zorst and after almost 2 weeks of driving, I've had no over boost or dangersous EGT levels or anything. The 3" mod is definitely worth doing, I can here the Trol thanking me every time I drive it.
    .. speak up, my hearing isn't what it used to be. It used to be my vision and I can't see what you're saying ..

    Just as an aside to the EGR blocking debate, I read somewhere sorry can't remember, that the soot and other crap reinserted into combustion chamber finds its way into engine oil. Right numerous posters here acknowledge oil is cleaner after blocking, however what I read was that modern engine oils bond with the soot etc and effectively scour the engine parts it comes in contact with supposedly keeping engine parts cleaner...may or may not be BS... and certainly I'd prefer to have the cleaner inlet tract blocking the EGR brings to the table...so horses for course I guess.

    Truthfully, and I know this is sacrilege, but I'd rather be off road on my Husky...(bike not dog)

    Hello,

    Just wondering if blanking could be substituted by inserting a one-way valve in the pipe leading to the EGR actuator? Has anyone taken the actuator apart - is the diaphragm strong enough? I would be curious if the actuator fully closes the recycling port when under full boost and keep it that way.

    Cheers,
    Tamas

    Putting a blanking plate is a 10 minute job. Id say retro fitting a one way valve might take a while longer. Just to achieve the same outcome.
