EGR gasket is well worth the 40 bucks they are asking!! Think about it this way this little gasket blocks off 75% of the EGR flow.. Well that space that the EGR took up in the intake is replaced by clean air!! I got this mod the other day and so far I am impressed by the cost and how well it worked with my mods and such.. Fuel economy seems to be just as good if not a little better than befroe.. IMO this mod is a good one to add to the mix!
Its not the same thing Zombie. I did the gasket trick myself but being a short area of restriction vacuum overcomes it easily. And then even if its a piece of aluminum, either the gasket will get sucked apart or the acid in the exhaust will eat the aluminum away. Length to the restriction is KEY.
Yea this isnt the same thing I got.. I got a metal bolt like deal.. It is about 3/4 inch deep for the restrictor hole.. So it wont be eaten away any time soon.. It basically bolts into the EGR tube, this gasket deal isnt the same thing I got..
