You should hit me or scuba up on sat pimpin.

yah were gonna be taking the engine tranny out at my girlfiends dads house where the talon is currently hibronating, but id be down to come down there i got the egr replacement to do and i also need to do my brakes. if you guys could come up and give us a hand pulling that engine and tranny it would probably make things go prety fast.and if that was the case depending on when the motor got pulled cruse back down to burlington and we could have some drinks or something while we all work on our rides :tup:

alrighty then.. hey got a question for you.. do you have any pictures of how you hooked up the egr valve on your klze?

i just robbed the one from my parts car and it has 2 coolant lines coming from it. and that could be a prolbem because the motor in my car wasnt set up for an egr valve. and the way it is now its causing the engine to ping prety badly sounds really bad. but when i clear the codes and start it up it just purrs

how do you avoid the egr codes then? for example code 16
Exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system

code 28
EGR vacuum solenoid

code 29
EGR vent solenoid

code 16 and 18 are comming up and its causeing my engine to ping badly.. becasue no egr action is being given to the egr valve so it must be stuck open.


cause if thats the case i just plug the holes and be done with it.

I think Megasquirt solves that problem. If not I don't care, you dont NEED it hooked up. Im going to just route a hose to the bottom of the engine bay to vent.
