    Oh dang, you are doing this all yourself? Better than me, i am too scared to do that myself. I will mostly everything else, but timing chain and all that mess scares me.

    Yeah to be honest I'm a little scared but I have the tools and I've watched a lot of videos and I have a friend that could help me so I think I'll be OK if I take my time and make sure I do it right. I don't have the money for a mechanic so I'm gonna have to do it.

    Well I feel you on that, I have done tons of research too. If you need help, I have the Chilton program for free (Army gives it to us) and I can paste the instructions in here.

    Mine is up to 187K now, I replaced my Timing Chain and Water pump a few weeks ago and everything is working! I keep getting an EGR code every so often, I keep clearing it and will stay off for a few days then pop back on at random. I've replaced it several times, seems to be ok for a few months then it will happen again.

    Hey brother, have you tried replacing your EGR tube seal or you EGR seal? I know I had an EGR leak and it was because when I took off the plenum, apparently I ripped the EGR tube seal and it was causing the engine to run rough and throw a code. Just a thought. If you deiced to replace the tube seal, I suggest buying them on Ebay or somewhere else online. I personally keep at least one spare in my toolbox just in case. Good luck bro. Just broke 150,000 miles on my baby too.

    Yeah I just put a new one on when I did the timing chain/water pump. I also had to replace my PCM because it had a shorted Injector driver. I wondered if the replacement PCM had an issue with the EGR detection. It's not running any different at the moment, maybe I should make sure my tube seal is sealed well. I might need to have the tubes cleaned real well, I dunno it's just annoying. I've replaced the EGR valve like 6 times in 2 years, a couple of them were faulty out of the package

    Knock on wood, Still running Strong. at 62,XXX miles now.

    Ported TB, Hypertech Tune, Big Bully intake and exhaust.

    Car is paid off pretty much. I think I have 2 payments left.

    Going to keep driving it for a little while longer. Then Swap the 2.7L for a 5.7L or 6.4L. Depending on what deals I find. I even came across a Good running 6.0L i thought about, but my Dad is going to put it in an Old School GTO.

    The problem is how it shows up in the recent thread activity. The title did not state 2.7, so most folks did not notice that it was in the 2.7 forums. Updated thread title for clarification.
