Negative. I'm not going down that road again...ever! Still have a HalTech E6GM from messing with fuel injection on the '87 Camaro. No, I'm better off sticking to the stock ECM. After I get the hang of the data layout in the factory prom, I'll start messing with it on my own, but for starters, I'll let Ryan do the work and pay for his time.

Ok, another change in plans. Got an email this morning, the TB adapter is on backorder with Intense, so I cancelled the order. It was looking like a month on the outside to get one here, and that would throw the time table out of whack.

Guess I go pick up some aluminum plate stock from AllMet this afternoon and crank up the machine shop myself to make an adapter plate. This shouldn't be too bad. I was planning on doing a bit of machine work on the Intense plate anyways to accomodate a Fogger nozzle.

It'* going to be a busy weekend. I also have to machine several steel rods into plugs for the EGR ports on the exhaust manifold and lower intake. Basicly, turn the rod stock down to match the profile of the original EGR pipe ends, then cut up the pipes to get the hold-down clamps off and use them to hold the plugs in. The exhaust manifold one will need some high temp sealant or an interference fit so tight I'd have to heat the manifold up to drive it in. On the intake side I can simply machine a groove into the intake plug for a rubber O-ring to seal it against vac leaks.

For those who clamor for pictures, a mental one will have to do for the moment till the first plug is made.. Imagine you are looking at the EGR fitting on the manifold. Instead of seeing a pipe comming out the center hole of the hold-down clamp, all you see is a steel plug in the middle of the hole where the pipe should be.

I though about just threading the existing holes for common steel pipe plugs, but that would ruin them should someone ever want to put EGR plumbing back in.

You should make your way up here Curt and get some aluminum plate from Skycraft...hell you could probably find the nozzles too.

So, when are you going to grenade the LN3??

Curt... local GP guys merely make a block off plate and seal with RTV for the LIM. That way it'* quick, simple and effective while remaining easy to remove and install the EGR.
