Does anyone have a copy of the installations instructions for the Weeks Stage 2 Egr Delete. I purchased both some time back and never opened the box. Now that I finally got around to having and egr leak with coolant finding it's way into the cylinders I finally decided to begin the project I should have completed years ago. But I can not find any instructions anywhere. None in the box. None with the parts. I have searched through all sorts of web engines and no clear instructions. Stage 1 is uncomplicated even for me. But I have and Egr cooler with many hoses and one barb fitting in the stage 2 kit :furious:

Any help would be much appreciated

All my parts from installing Stage 1 & 2 kits now just have to get it flashed. Going to get the transmission done too.

Done! Have some issues unrelated to the kit. This is a full day job doing both by the way! DO NOT attempt this if you are not mechanically inclined!!! Didn't help that I had to redo a bunch of wiring looms that were brittle with a lot of exposed wires. Also my intake manifold was seriously caked with soot and spent an hour or two scraping and wire brushing and vacuuming to get it half way decent (140k of buildup). On a side not though the instructions call for possible issues with removing the inner front bolt of the factory intake elbow . Make it easy and leave it till last. use a short extension to break it loose then rotate the whole elbow to gain access to it. then it's easy to get to. Now for my issue (kinda a witch session per se) The steel EGR manifold bolts (removed on the stage 2 kit) go into an aluminum block. Now I don't know how the factory installs these but I bought this Libby because a dealership recently installed a new timing belt, EGR cooler and EGR valve. What chaps my butt is the idiots not only didn't retorque a bunch of bolts causing boost leaks but reinstalled these EGR manifold bolts dry with NO never cease. NEVER install a steel bolt into an aluminum anything dry unless you don't EVER want it to come out. There is an electrolysis that occurs between the two differing metals that weld them together! something as simple as a drop of oil will greatly help. Now I have ONE bold holding on my entire EGR assembly that has the head stripped off it (after breaking two Craftsman 10 mm sockets the 3rd one just stripped the head) and after about 6 hours of futile attempts I will either need to pull the transmission so I can torch the head off or leave it there for all eternity. Since I just had the tranny rebuilt last week it will probably be the ladder. Fshew! I feel better...

First thing I noticed now after installation is how quiet it is! No turbo whine from boost leaks!

Aren't you glad you had a reason to do this and catch all these potential problems before you had to chase them down later?

Why not use a die grinder, or better yet, a 4" angle grinder with a cutting disk, and just chop it out? If it's being thrown away as mine was, it really doesn't matter how cleanly it comes out, right?

The steel bolts holding most things on the motor are coated at the bolt factory. I work with steel and aluminum and a lot of bolts are not coated and I have no issues.
