    Hey dorlia2, any luck with that EPG

    Im just replacing my turbo and my Epg looks same as yours, not sure about opening gap etc.....

    or how to tell if its good or not good.

    What did you do, replace it or plug the air line.

    Over here in Canada they want $1200.00 for that epg.

    2001 d12c 465hp

    thanks,

    I removed mine completely. Made a plate to cover the hole out of 3/16 steel and plugged the airline. No adverse effects so far.

    This way you should have lost both Engine and Exhaust brakes? OK not %100 but they are useless.

    No, only lost exhaust brake. Stil have functioning engine brake. Don't really bother me cuz I don't use it anyway. I think in most operations the JAKE or VEB is only used because people think it "sounds cool" anyway.
