there was a thread on here that linked to a video of a guy showing how to test for EGR and HG's.....but i cant find that thread.You take the cap off the D'gas bottle...plug it with a rubber stopper with a 1/4 hose through the center leading into a jug of water....then something about how much bubbles comes out of the hose...bah bah...when i did it....it damn near shot the water of the jug...i guess when the HG's and EGR start to fail...it pressurizes the cooling system.

............soooooo I assume this test can still be done if your EGR is already deleted??? I would think that there would still be pressure i.e. bubbles coming out even if you had good head gaskets??? I want to do this and see what I get if for no other reason than to do it.

i dont know......my has the EGR delete and studs from ARP. I was driving one day ( it was real hot that day) and when i stopped...i noticed coolant coming out...now that its not hot anymore......it dosent seem to be losing or pushing coolant out. Now i have this deal when first thing in the morning...when i turn the heater on.....it takes a bit of driving before the heat comes through..temp is staying normal...sooo...i dont have a clue now..
