I'm a complete novice but as Lenny said, take your time and give it ago, you'll be pleasantly surprised with yourself after doing it, all id add to the guide is move the fuel filter back and take the bracket off for extra room if you need it. You can build up your confidence doing that before going for the valve too

Most of my tools are cheaper sets, like garage specials lol. Got 2 lots of wratchet and bits, many many screwdrivers and most of the time these do the trick, if one tool doesnt quite do the job, then I find a way to make it :P

I walk through full thread and I would like to do EGR blanking and DPF delete but I didn't catch one thing. Can I do DPF mapping by my self or it need to be done by professionals? Does anyone try with resistors on DPF sensor cables?

I see from your profile information that your ford is a 2009
This means that your DPF may be a Ceramic dpf, if it is a ceramic then it wont have any sensors in the exhaust system,
However the remap carried out after dpf internal removal is not only to eliminate the file regarding the operations of the dpf, the remap also changes various other parameters to ensure there is no smoke from the exhaust and emissions remain within limits aswell as increasing your power and MPG figures,

Please Note: if you decide to remove the dpf internals by yourself, take extreme care to protect your respiratory system and skin,
The dpf filter carrys much the same characteristics as Aspestos which has ireversable effects on you4 lungs,
The eloys fluid is also corossive which can cause severe skin irritation,
If gotten in contact with skin rinse the affected area with Viniger and seek medical attention,
Viniger that you put on your chips is a mild acid, washing an acidic burn with viniger will wash away the heavier acid content,
However washing with water only dilutes the acid causing further burning as water is most accepted by the body.
Overall though all considered id pay for the service to be done but each to there own.

wow! thx for this long and useful reply.. I will pass DPF removal for now, but  I would like to get EGR deleted. Can I get better MPG and improved torque with EGR deletion only?

yes i recommend this aswell as fitting a Green Cotton induction filter this thread is dedicated to EGR blanking which is effectively "EGR Deletion" please take the time to read through the pages of feedback from people whom have done there's.
And here is a link to the Green Cotton Filter thread: http://www.fordowner...-fitting-guide/

You should see a slight increase in MPG from EGR blank/Delete
I recommend fitting a direct replacement performance induction filter, after you blank the EGR

Why?
Because when the EGR was in operation the engine took up to 30% of its induction from the exhaust,

Now the engine takes 100% fresh clean Induction from the atmosphere, so a less constrictive induction filter helps improve things along with EGR blanking.

Stock filter inside:

Upgrade Filter Inside:

A lot less restriction allowing the engine to breath more smoothly on a turbo engine also helps increase MPG see my Guide on Green Cotton Performance Induction, it has a 10% Discount code aswell:
http://www.fordowner...-fitting-guide/

Blanking the EGR also prevents excessive amounts of Carbon build up in your engine oil,
It is the build up of carbon which slowly builds up around the "turbo oil feed pipe" restricting the flow of oil feeding to the turbo,
Which ultimately leads to turbo failure,

So after you have blanked/Deleted the EGR valve, i recommend using a Can of "Wynne's Engine Flush" on your next oil change,
The can costs less than 5 GBP
It breaks down the built up carbon and sludge inside the engine caused by the operations of the EGR,
I've used Wynne's engine flush many times and found it very effective, always follow instructions.

I just did it! I inserted blanking plate with my friend for less then hour. The most difficult part was lifting fuel filter since there was no instructions for it in this guide. After all we try it on the road and I can say it goes much smoother, there's no "delay" or lag when starting. It's much responsive and so far no errors reporting and I hope it wont appear at all.

Lenny, thx for great tutorial and see you in next project: removing and remapping DPF, but it will wait after I came back from vacation.

Cheers!  :driving:
