I run the ECO tune (in my 2007 KJ CRD Export Model), and just cleaned out my intake elbow, FCV etc and want it to stay clean. I have blocked off the EGR at the flange end of the short pipe running from the valve to the intake elbow (simply because this was the easiest way to do it while I was changing my glow plugs and cleaning the intake elbow). I had heard in the past that Export Models do not throw a CEL or code if EGR is blocked, and sure enough this seems to be the case because in a few days of driving with it blocked off nothing bad has happened.

What I have become concerned about in blocking it at that location is the loss of the overboost bleed off function in the GDE software (using the EGR valve to bleed the boost to protect the compressor). Would it be preferable to block the EGR gases at the exhaust manifold connection and reopen the short pipe to the valve to allow for the bleed function to take place; or can I simply put a blowoff valve on the intake elbow pipe connection (but how would I trigger it)?

I have managed to get the TCM installed in the right hand drive export model. Anyone wanting TCM install instructions for the right hand drive export models please contact me through Private Message on Aus Jeep Offroad (AJOR) or LOST, and I will send you a copy of the RHD install procedure (It is different).
Keith just be aware that the TCM location on export right hand drive KJ CRDs is on the other side of the vehicle and mounted on the firewall near the ECU. From what I can tell by looking with my little mirror it is going to be impossible to remove without some major effort (the AC canister is right in front of it).
