the original arguement was that the car pulled better/no flat spots etc,better/cheaper,etc.

and i said the car will run better,have less lag,run cooler,etc,when egr is connected & doing its job.

i dont doubt that blanking will stop smoke though.BUT you're only pushing the problem outta sight. AND for a ford chief mechanic to take that short cut,is pretty !REMOVED! up in the 1st place

and when you say many foc member s have blanked with good results,compared to what?  you're only hiding the original problem with the engine,thats what i cant get my head round? why would you wanna tell folk to fit a blanking plate,when they should be finding the reason their cars are smoking like hell! if they spent a few more quid they'd probably find the right reason & not have to resort to shortcuts. egr's are NOT only for emissions,i keep saying,but whats the point,ya's have already decided on the 1 course of action,& to hell with the consequences.oh well

 

Blanking the EGR does not "hide" the problem, it removes the problem permanently

 

More often than not, its the EGR valve/ system that IS the problem

 

You don't need an EGR valve/ system on a diesel engine - simples

 

 The "consequences" of fitting a solid stainless steel EGR blanking plate are - 

 

Better starting

 

Less smoke

 

More reliable

 

Cleaner inlet  

 

EGR housing and Inlet do not get coked up

 

Better performance

 

Less flat spots

 

Less turbo lag

 

Slightly better economy

 

(Much) Cheaper than replacing the EGR valve

 

+ the only genuine drawback - the engine management light may come on on Euro4/5 compliant engines

Agreed

 

the eml coming on isnt really a drawback if you buy a cheap code reader £20 and delete it once a week to make sure no other faults are there.

Firmware updates took care of these issues.Also took care of flat spots & lag issues with variable vane turbos. Better fuel consumption as well due to these corrections

:lol: :lol:  there isnt updated firmware for the egr.

 

If there had been such a mythical thing, there wouldnt be so many people driving around with blanked egrs <_<

You should fit a solid blanking plate now to see how much your MPG,  improves, and by how much the turbo lag and flat spots are reduced
