Commuting yesterday and over 2800 rpm in 4,5,6th gears I felt a strange pulsing , it felt like torque was on/off enough to make me aware.
Speedo was climbing steadily as was the Tacho, but there was a definate slow pulsing in torque delivery.
Where do I start looking? Wastegate, EGR?

i would start with an egr valve cleanout,its a messy job but worth it, this link will help
also check the intercooler hose which is the big hose from the bottom of the egr valve for any splits,and for any splits in the rubber vacume hoses.

Yep, EGR to intercooler pipe 2" split just where you can't see it.
Saw what looked like a big patch on a near by pipe, air blowing from the split.
Did not have any silicon pipe or joiners in the workshop so had to pay Fords £54 for a 300mm bit of pipe, robbing *##*€$DS

has the new pipe done the trick and stopped the pulsing?

Will find out tomorrow, finished the job on the car then went down the pub to watch the England Ireland rugby.
For me not a good day and I owe Irish Mick a pint
