Re: Double EGR spacers...
I am using the AU EGR spacer (with no EGR valve) and the car has not noticeably changed in behaviour, though I don’t know how good the emissions are.
I didn’t think the EGR valve was necessary as I’m sure other people have used the AU spacers for their E-series without any dramas?
This is what led me to thinking about the effect two EGR spacers together would have.
Using the original 60mm EGR spacer (with the valve) between the AU 65mm TB, and the AU 65mm EGR spacer, and matching them together.
Might just do the experiment, though the results may be difficult to compare when the car won’t be on a dyno.
But as EDXR8 has said
“2 EGR plates would increase low down torque a bit, but the problem I think you will find is that you will need a much sharper bend in the intake pipe (from the air box to the TB) which will hurt airflow. If you run no EGR spacer, and no EGR valve, you will push the power band higher but you may also have pinging problems associated with running no EGR”
Having read that it could be worth giving the two EGR’s a go!
Might see if I can get another 65mm EGR with the valve fitting and put two 65mm EGRs together.
