is there any advantage/disadvantage to removing the alda completly?
That is 100% incorrect information. I have done this modification myself and know the results.Maxbumpo said:None. Power will drop from 125hp to about 90hp, fuel consumption will increase.
Huh? Where did you get the EGR is digital part? It's computer controlled in 84+ models.WeVonBraun said:ALDA is analog
EGR is digital
No need to mess with the turbo, it will still have the same boost levels. There will always be some turbo lag. With a functional ALDA, when you apply 50% throttle you are in really applying only about 40%. As boost builds, the ALDA allows the additional 10%. This is the rush you feel as the turbo kicks in.karugs said:Lance, do you know if you also have to adjust the wastegate when you remove the ALDA? Are you saying that by removing the ALDA, there will be no turbo lag? I know the turbo will still have lag, but how can you say that it will be more linear when you still have the turbo? I'm a bit confused.
They designed it to meet the required emissions standards while remaining efficient and reliable. Removing the ALDA gives the car a higher quality of driving. Removing the EGR allows the engine to breathe clean, uncontaminated air. Significantly reducing carbon buildup, cylinder wall wear, ring wear, oil contamination, and intake restriction. All that at the expense of slightly higher NOx emissions.p100 said:No offense, but a lot more diesel engine knowledgeable people than yourself designed these diesel engine controls and you are more likely to screw something up than improve on it.
