need to know EGR removal

Write ups and tutorials for maintenance and modifications.

JDM ECU is a good solution.

Another thing to keep in mind. High mileage engines will develop lots of carbon/gunk in EGR transfer. In head and intake manifold passages will clog up. They aren't easy to clean.

Writeup = great. I got an EGR removal kit from KO and it actually came with Toyota gaskets, which amazed me. My EGR didn't even have a gasket on the exhaust side and the intake side gasket was dust. Got no codes or adverse effects from unplugging it and leaving the plug hanging, I'll probably clip it off just to neaten it up some more. That's one less thing that can break and gum up the works!

is the egr for the st165 similar? i already have that stupid spaceship looking egr thingie off my motor, i gotta see where it goes, i don't think it attaches to the top of the head like that like 185. also, anyone knows more about "tricking the ecu" with the 1 ohm resistor, i happen to have that stupid "cali ecu" i think, i bought it in roseville
