Intake or EGR

Sup guys. just looking up some info. my EGR ports need cleaning but i was curious to know that if i decided to clean out the intake manifold if its the same thing or even better then just cleaning out the EGR Ports. i know ill porbably have to take out the entire Manifold but before hand i want to know whats the better route to go.

Re: Intake or EGR

It's better to take out the whole IM and clean it but it is ALOT more work. If I were you I would still take out those port plugs and make sure you get everything clean in there. Once you get the IM out I would imagine it makes the whole process alot easier though so deffinitely worth it.

Re: Intake or EGR

For someone that's done the port cleaning before - it only takes 30-45 minutes.

It can be done with or without the manifold on the car, if you're doing it yourself just take it off to be sure you get everything out and don't risk dropping anything into the cylinders. Get a nice intake manifold gasket to put in afterwards and take your time scraping the old gasket off.
