Can one of you SRT owners tell me if the 6.1 has a EGR valve and where it is located? I don't see anything in the '05 service manual but that means little.

Since most likely I'm going to have to do a rebuild/over-haul I'm thinking of getting a 6.1 and dropping it in place of the 5.7. But I'd like to know if there is a EGR and where it is.

Thanks

Why dont you just trade in your 300c and get an SRT 8 and save yourself the trouble, or put a supercharger on your 5.7 and increase the horsepower that way.

Its dark out right now, I'll take a look in the AM. Isn't it usually on the firewall?

I'm sure it does have one, with the tight emissions control nowadays.

A service tech over on another board said there is no EGR on the 6.1, but thanks for the offer Rebel78!

Brown - As for trade in, well, I have headers, willwoods, cat back, VES, a super charger etc. I pretty much have it set up the way I want it and the dealer would bend me over with no foreplay on the trade in value so, that is not an option at this point.

There has been a trend for the last several years now of removing the EGR system. Cam event timing has helped out a lot with this. I can't find an EGR system on our 6.1L so I am guessing it doesn't have one.

Don't know about the 6.1, but the 5.7 has one. It's just above the alternator/with the tube running to the intake.

Well, I looked and I couldn't see it. It should come up from the exhaust, to the valve, and then to the intake, correct? I'm having a hard time seeing all the areas, but if it was in front of me I think I would know it.

Perhaps, I'm not familiar with many of the newer vehicles, I just kinda assumed it would.
