Hello, i was wondering, is there a difference about the effects of EGR blanking with a 2.0 TDCI 136 (FOCUS /C-MAX/KUGA...)?
I just disabled mine at 70000km. I've read sometime it could be bad to disable EGR, there is somtime debates on this subject. What is your opinion?
Ford Focus MK2 2007 2.0L TDCI 136.
The long term effects of EGR blanking are -
1 - the EGR cannot fail, so the car is more reliable
2 - the inlet manifold/ EGR and associated components stay clean/ carbon free (they dont get "gunged" up)
3 - the car is more efficient (so better performance/ economy) - so in the long run, better for the enviroment because in the lifetime of the car, less fuel in used
4 - there is less smoke from the exhaust with a solid plate fitted, so cleaner MOT emmisions and if you have a DPF, it lasts longer, before needing a regen, cleaned, or replaced
5 - i run a 2002 car, i fitted a EGR delete kit (of my own design) in about 2005, - thats 9 years ago, the car still has its original turbo, injectors etc etc, the engine is tuned/ modified from 113hp to 160+ - if anyone knows about the long term effects on EGR blanking, its me
6 - many FOC forum members have now blanked their EGRs, and reported positive results
Go ahead, fit a solid plate - its better for your car, you, your pocket, the enviroment, in the short term AND long term
