    G'day Kev,
    Going by the symptoms you're describing I'm guessing you also own a 3l GU Patrol? A bit more information will make it easier for us to help you.

    No problems mate.

    I'm actually going to take the EGR probe thing out of the manifold on the weekend. I'm still getting an annoying whistling noise noise and it just HAS to be related to the EGR somehow.. I can't think of anything else, so this is the next step.

    Cheers

    I have blocked off my EGR, but i blocked it at the exhaust manifold end. Reason being, I thought it would reduce the heat being transfered along the EGR pipe. It may or may not make much differance.

    It won’t make any difference. Most people just block it at the inlet manifold because it’s easier to do, but stopping the gas flow from anywhere does the trick and the alloy pipe from the valve to the inlet manifold no longer gets hot.

    One advantage to blocking it at the inlet manifold is that you no longer get oil building up in the EGR valve.

    Hi Guys, If I happen to punch out a bunch of EGR blocking plates that slide in as described in the post above, would anyone be interested?,
    cheers The Ferret.

    Would be depending on what you make them out of.
    Stainless is supposedly the best, been looking around to find some off scraps but so far haven't found any./
