Thanks, yes '85's are quite different in many respects.

You dont mess with these guy's!

Just a few weeks ago a good friend of mine got pulled over for a routine vehicle inspection they do here from time to time.They connected a gas analyzer to the exhaust and noticed something wrong...Then they saw that there was a plate under the EGR valve blocking it.An hour or so latter his car was towed to the nearest Air Care facility and was fined 1200.00$ for altering his vehicle under the Anti Pollution act we have here plus his towing fee of 175.00$.

Lesson learned!

A good reason not to mess with plates and to just block the vacuum line.

Or cut up a soda can and put it under the valve.

What did they notice? That they were testing a diesel instead of a g@sser? Unless they had a portable dyno, there would be no way to test for NOx emissions and using g@sser standards will always show high NOx on a Diesel. I'd sue them for their incompetence and refund of the fines.

I disabled the EGR and removed the junk on the valve cover on all of ours too. In fact I even disabled the EGR on my gasser!
