all fitted :D

 

thought the throttle does feel a bit better, but tbh its probably just a placebo because i read it on here!

 

Cheers

LOL, should help it pick up a bit better from low revs, eliminate the "EGR flatspot", and yes, the throttle can feel a bit more responsive, its not a usually massive difference, (depends on the car) they recon you need a 10% power increase to have a noticable increase in power, you might see a (slight) difference with a stopwatch or on a dyno

 

 

As Sal has said, the main thing is the inlet/ EGR housing no longer gets contaminated

 

Cleaning out the inlet manifold and EGR and resetting the ECU may give more noticable gains (especially if the inlet is badly choked up with carbon/ gunge from the EGR)

 

 Theoretically there should be a slight increase in MPG as well, it would be good to get feedback/ figures about that

Done mine on Saturday, i can definitely feel an improvement on lower revs :D wasn't too hard to do just be careful that the wiper arms are aligned correctly. 

 

driven about 120 miles since, no EML yet (Euro4 engine). MPG also seems unaffected, if not then i would say it is slightly better, a406/m40/a40 from east london to cheltenham with a few of full throttle takeoffs and overtaking and managed 56MPG, and i would normally get that amount with granny driving

i dont think any of us have had any error lights so far mate

i posted here on the 1st, so i would guess iv done a good few hundred miles now without any lights. and iv not done a mpg test yet, but it wouldnt be accurate in the weather we're having ATM anyway

If I do get an error and remove it, problem solved or will it end up going in to limp mode? -.-

Won't cause limp mode, limp mode and error codes are different things

 

So far no-one has even had an EML on yet, and several forum members have fitted a solid plate, with only positive/ good results - 

 

I think you are pretty safe fitting one (solid, stainless steel blanking plate)

Where did you read that? - the ones with the hole are useless -  its a blanking plate not a mint :lol:

Yeah, just restricts rather than blocks due to the fact the EGR need air going through it >.<

 

Seeing it's just a code, may as well just do it and see, if it throws a fault I'll just get it knocked off come service time.

I might be considering removing mine soon... ive started noticing this "wawawawawaw" type sound everytime i get over 40mph, it should be sealed tight around the blanking plate area. did you guys remove that thin gasket when fitting the blanking plate?
