How to make your 5.7 sound like a diesel....

Ok, so I quickly threw the new engine in. The old one was an 03'.(non egr)
I looked over the new engine pretty good I thought. But I must have missed one thing.

So im assuming this is the egr port. ? lol

So i found this gasket, and made a quick and ugly blockoff plate.

Lol yep that's the egr! If you need the room you could also NPT tap the hole and use a plug that's flush with the head anyone running a supercharger with egr knows what I mean there

Im probably missing something. But why would someone who goes to the trouble to run a supercharger or some kinda power adder, still run an EGR?

I believe the short answer is, they wouldn't. I use a block off plate and I think Keith uses a plug. Not sure what the turbo guys do..

The kits come emmission compliant so on a normal truck you would still have it us race or perf guys know to get rid of it and make it fall off

Turbos remove the EGR as well.
