Just installed the Weeks elbow and it goes in really easily. Should make replacing glow plugs a snap in the future. I had to replace mine so had to take off the EGR and intake elbow anyway.

Thanks for a great product, Weeks.

Brought the Jeep to work for a shakedown run after my initial runs last night around the house verifying function.

WHAT A DIFFERENCE IN SMOTHNESS AND POWER! I got my old Jeep back.

Just to add to my post awhile back. Post install, I have gone from 26mpg highway to 31-32 since. I also had to replace my alternator decoupler too, as that was shot. I've started running Amsoil 2 cycle marine as an additive. That has smoothed out the engine just a tad bit.

I have just completed a 150 mile run on motorways, so steady speed (65) no rapid acceleration or deceleration. Mpg worked out to just under 42. Bear in mind that that is IMPERIAL gallons; as an Englishman I sneer at your puny American gallons :) Vehicle was smooth and may have been a bit quieter.

For those of you who did this (plugged the external coolant fitting on the driver's side of the head), is there any concern about reduced or changed coolant flow through the head?

Nope. IMO if anything it has increased flow, with the old nipple restriction in place it would siphon off a little coolant from the head thru the 1/4" nipple to feed the EGR lines and cooler. Now that its blocked off the coolant is free to flow unrestricted in the head. There is also less heat exchanged now that my coolant doesn't have to remove heat thru the old EGR setup. On a side note, when I use to do a coolant flush I was only able to remove around 1 1/2 gallons, even with the rear tires elevated. Now when I did a coolant flush I was able to remove a full 2 gallons on the flush, and add a full 2 gallons of Zerex G05 back in. Also my thermostat warms up to operating temp in less than 5 minutes, faster than it used to.

Totally get the fact that the EGR is no longer adding heat to the system, which should help with capacity. But...

The reasoning behind the above comment seems like it might have a flaw in it. Let's assume that the fitting on the head is an outlet, not an inlet. And for the sake of simplicity say that the head has two outlets for coolant flow. Blocking either one of those would not increase the flow, it would decrease it because there is now only one escape. It seems like it causes a restriction, not that it gets rid of one. And if that side of the head needs to have an outlet so that coolant doesn't just pool there without flowing, then that seems like it might be a problem,too. That's why I'm asking.

Slowing the flow in the block does allow the coolant to absorb more heat but it often results in localized boiling, steam pockets and generally higher block temperatures. Such as the 1/4' restriction from the stock nipple. Turbulent, high-flow coolant results in a cooler engine because it moves away before it has a chance to boil. Most experts say that coolant flow should be as high as the coolant passages in the block will allow before flow restriction raises the pressure significantly. Maybe a better solution to blocking off would be to install a larger opening nipple/plug than the 1/4" and route the flow back over the engine block. I just went with less leak points and therefore removed all the unneeded lines after I deleted the EGR/Cooler/FCV setup.

I don't have a GED tune and in Ca. we have to get inspected every 2 years, so is this going to leave a check engine light on?

Yes, unless you get the SEGR device which is another way to fool the computer that the EGR is working. There may still be a code for the FCV, the GDE tune is the best option and offers many benefits besides killing that silly code and light from the system.

As geordi pointed out, it will. I'm not sure the kit would pass the "visual inspection" parts of the test also, but I guess it would depend on the person doing the inspection.

Correct, you will have a CEL unless you have a GDE tune or a SEGR. I highly recommend the GDE tune.
