so i got my headers off and am putting on some MAC shorty s. turns out the egr tube hookup on the passenger side header is about four inches further towards the front than on the stock header. do they make an aftermarket tube to fix this?
This is what I did-1/2" copper tube and use a flaring tool to flare the ends. You can also use compression fittings if you don't wanna buy a flaring tool (about 13 bux). I personally have only read about the compression fittings-never tried it myself.
well i tried to bend to the tube...and wasnt surprised when it snapped in half...what happens if i simply cap off the threaded part on the header and block the hole where the other thing attaches to the throttle body?
I managed to use the factory pipe, trim it down a bit, bolt it to the header and run the last few inches with high-temp silicone hose. That worked like a charm. That hose is crazy expensive though. It can take a ton of heat, but definitely can't handle being clamped directly to the bung on the header (I tried it and the hose sizzled).
