Thanks Bill, that is what I will do.
I have no plans on re-installing this EGR.
I know what every says but I trade off the risk with the benefits of a cooler and cleaner intake.
The pic shows how I have been running it for the last 3 years with a filter on the end so it fools the computer and does not throw any codes.
I now have the PCM reprogrammed by INTENSE to eliminate the code so I can remove the entire EGR, like Todd did since he runs an intercooler and wants to keep it clean and efficient.
Here are pics of my old Gen 3 rotors. I rotated it thru each of the pics so you can see the entire surfaces. Notice it is mostly one rotor that had the defective coating.
Also notice the scuffing on the ends of that rotor.
I did not have to clean these rotors. That is exactly how they came out of the engine.
