    Hey guys, just made an attempt at installing some pacemakers to a vt v6.
    Close to completion although I couldnt fit the egr pipe onto the extractors. Doesn't quite match up. Anyone else had this issue? Would it be easier if I remove the bolts from the valve, screw the pipe in to the extractors then Bolt the valve back on?
    Started the car up to see if it would run, had some smoke coming from the passenger side pipes, although couldn't determine a leak. Seemed to be coming off the pipes themselves. Seemed to be sputtering while idling. Any ideas?

    It is a pain to get the EGR pipe in, I leave them loose, start the nut into the extractor fitting, tighten the extractor bolts, then tighten the EGR pipe.

    The smoke is normal, it's the paint burning in. The change in idle is normal too as the pulses of each cylinder are travelling further in each pipe.

    Thanks for the info mate! I already have the extractors all bolted up, I was going to heat up the egr pipe and try bending it Into place. If that is no good I'll unbolt everything and have a crack at it that way. The extractors are second hand, I thought maybe there might be oil or something on them burning off.

    Going to do the plugs and leads while I'm at it, they are due to be done anyway, thought that might be the issue too

    Probably the dirt from your hands burning off the extractors then.

    I thought that might be the case. Will get that egr pipe fitted on, change the plugs and leads and see how I go. Thanks for the tips!

    Well. Got it all hooked up changed leads and plugs. Now I am getting all kinds of clicking sounds, when I turn it over it just cuts out. It's not solenoids clicking sounds like something else is arcing. Any ideas

    Make sure the leads are in the correct order and that you have not broken a plug, it's easy to do.
