Re: where is the inspector getting the EGR requirement - what he tells me is that although never marketed here the engine was certified for use in the U.S. and supposedly that was one of the pieces that makes them usable here. He also said that people have been inporting an isuzu diesel and putting them in toyotas but they can never pass because the engines were never certified for U.S. use...

Most diesels here get a dyno run so existance or non-existance of an EGR is not relivant it just matters how much smoke you're producing, however, the apparently deadly combination of short wheelbase, all-time all-wheel drive, and diesel means that nobody can run a dyno on it (only people, apparently, that can do the all-wheel drive diesel has a minimum wheelbase requirement over 100 inches) so it's visual inspection only...

"Deadly combination"...I'd say you're rather lucky all you need is a visual inspection.

For your immediate problem just go to another shop, assuming you're not flagged in the system.

Then get all the bits from the seller and slap them on. The hardest part would be the control on top of the pump, although if Matt's right about it being a different pump altogether then you'll have to get more creative to pass the visual test! I thought the pumps were identical just the top plate being different.

Hmm...that sounds very anecdotal. Everything I've seen states the engine was never certified by the EPA for road use (or any use for that matter).

I agree. Why would LR bother to get certification for a diesel for use here when it would never fly at that time (it hardly flies now) and go against all their market research that a V8 is what sells in their vehicles?

How about pulling the front drive line, locking the center diff and running it on the dyno in rear wheel drive only?

If anyone has the egr parts laying around let me know i would like to buy some . I figure I would rather be safe than sorry when I go for my state inspection..
Installed for the visual effect only of course.

I figure I would give it a shot before my Defender became a Park County ( no emissions test ) resident.

I'm not 100% on the pump. It is a different part # and has some different linkage parts and the Discovery pump I was looking at is very different than the Defender (ROW) pump next to it.....that said, I think you may be able to get the control on the pump ok at least for visual inspection purposes.

Update:

I go the name of the guy that was doing the inspections on this truck (and passing it) previously and gave him a call to look at it again. He passed it without any problem at all . I can't even describe what a relief that is for me. If anyone wants his contact information drop me a line or just contact the Broomfield testing center for your inspection...
