I have the number for the K&N filter that we put on our GTP, but I don't have it in front of me, I can probably get it and then let you know, but I can't remember where the package is, so I may not be able to get it right away.
You guys are starting to convince me of the benefits, so I am considering doing it too.
What do you use for a filter now that the EGR is pumping in under hood air only

I purchased one from a local speed shop. It looks like one that would go on your valve cover for crankcase ventilation. If I knew how to post pics I would show you a pic of mine tonight.

I would really appreciate if you could find out the Make and Part number for me.
My parts dealer here in this town is a dolt, if you know what I mean.

I just ordered a Trani shift kit and EGR block-off plate from ZZP !!

Your gonna love the nice shifts and clean engine. You won't regret the mods. I have the number for the K&N filter we used on the GTP, it looks really nice, and even says K&N on the chrome on the end. I think we ordered it from Jegs, but I have to look. I have been trying to find the package for a while now, I may have trashed it, but if I find it I will give you the #.

Here'* the link from Jegs.

Just let me know which one. Thanks.
Also, what is the procedure for disconnecting and adding the block-off plate. I looks like a bear to get to.
I can hardly wait for my new toys.

Default EGR Blocking

The bolt on the back of the manifold is the tuff one to get at it is a 10mm if you have a short ratchet with a 2" extension then it should not be to much of a hassle. The bolts that hold the EGR to the head are 13mm the top one you can get to with ratchet and an extention the lower one you will need a wrench. The nut that holds the tube from the intake to the EGR is 13mm also. As for the block off plate I did my own so I am not sure about the one from ZZP.

Oh, that really helps, thanks. I didn't see the 10mm bolt head in behind the rear manifold. All I saw was the part sticking out the frontside without a head on it.LOL.

So if I understand you, I have to remove the entire EGR to install it? Why? Does that make it easier to bend the tube to install the filter?

The ZZP plate is only $5.

No you do not have to remove the whole thing. I was just telling you how to do it.

You can get the filter here.

http://www.lastlaps.com/page37.htm

K&N Part number 62-2480. $6.55.

I remeber that I actually got ours for the GTP at summitracing.com (I don't know why I thought jegs), but I can't find it there, but another GTP member gave me this link, so that should be the filter. Looks right to me.

Hope this helps,

Shawn
