Exhaust gas recirculation
(EGR) systems were introduced in the early '70s to reduce an
exhaust emission that was not being cleaned by the other
The EGR block-off plates are
for the 1990-1994 Lexus LS400 and 1992-1996 SC400.
These plates might work on other 1UZFE Models. These high
quality CNC machined mild steel plates will allow you to
completely remove the EGR system. These plates were designed
by one of our hardcore Lextremers using AutoCad 2004.
The factory EGR system allows super-heated exhaust gases to
re-circulate from the rear of the cylinder head back to the
intake manifold. The excessive heat at the rear of the head
has been known to be the cause of detonation. I have
personally witnessed malfunctioning EGR valves leak and
reduce performance and increase exhaust noise. I also
experience cracked EGR pipe and my "check engine" light came
I drove around for a year
with my EGR pipe cracked and its a very common problem with
Lexus V8 engine. After I replaced my EGR pipe the
"check engine" light was gone and no more exhaust leak and
noise. However, it was expensive. Replacing the
EGR pipe is very expensive in parts and labor. This
kit will simply eliminate these problems. The stock gasket
can be re-used from the EGR system. Installation
instructions and the proper value resistor (prevents MIL to
trigger) are also included. Please note that this
modification is not legal for use on any pollution
controlled vehicle and cannot be used on a public highway.
Off road use only.
The whole package is only $99
dollars. Here is what u get:
* Exhaust Passenger Side Block Plate
* Intake Exhaust Plate
* Side EGR Block Plate
* Resistor to prevent MIL.
* Two Washers
* Bypass Radiator Hose
* New Vacuum line
* Plug Caps
Here are the benefits:
* Lower Intake Temperature therefore increase HP (2-5 hp
* Reduce expensive Lexus Parts for repair
* Increase Exhaust flow for Turbo Application
* Cleaner look of your engine bay
* Easier to change Injectors and other parts due to EGR
You can remove the
* Vacuum Pipe
* EGR VSV
* Fuel Pressure VSV
* Accelerator Bracket
* EGR Valve and Vacuum Modulator
* EGR pipe
* Radiator coolant bypass
* Misc. Vacuum lines
Red Brackets above are what you can remove.
Green bracket is the system can be deleted.
This is how it look like after the removals:
