I work with a few, I could put you in touch lol

Im not fitting it to mine, it would not end well LOL, it would be the fastest 1.6 tdci right up to the point it blew its head clean through the bonnet. :blink: , anyway I am trying to act my age and not my shoe size hence the sensible focus estate, then I came across this but I must resist:

Aw sweet,
Wouldn't cost that much to complete that RS replica to be honest mate do it for under 1,000 pounds excluding alloys and lowering
Probably looking at a duplex exhaust addition too.

Well over-steer is bad enough in a 5 door so no point even trying to chicane an estate like an RS lol

Can I just ask.

If this EGR is so detremental to the engine/turbo etc then why do manufacturers install them in the first place?

Noob question I know.... :D

Mike.

The purpose of the egr is to be more economical and reduce emissions by recirculating the exhaust waste gases for re-combustion,
So its purpose it to help environmentally,
But on the flip side, blanking increases the exhaust pressure flow thus increasing the turbos spool time which also makes the car more efficient as you now push less to get up speed,

If I was a car manufacturer I'd fit them too because I know it will in time mess up your engine and as a car manufacturer I'd be more than happy to supply you the replacement parts again and again. ;)
If you build something that never breaks you will soon go out of business.

Thanks for that. Makes perfect sense!

On the strength of what you have said and your explanations with step by step instructions, I have ordered from the link you provided and will attempt to fit the s/s blanking plate myself when it arrives.

I will be having my DPF removed (internally) and deleted with an ecconomy remap after removal too so I should see some decent performance/economy gains when it gets done.... :)

Glad to be of assistance,
You will notice a slightly more positive feel immediately after blanking the egr,
But the huge increase will be when you remap the engine.
I too would like to get the dpf internally removed but local specialist would prefer to manufacture a straight pipe replacement instead,
This won't make any difference to the end result except that it would be clearly visible "its gone"
I'm in search of a place that will do as I ask and remove the internals then refit the chamber not a straight pipe.

Time to learn to weld Lenny, remove cut square hole in top with grinder with 1mm cutting disk, smash the insides out, then weld plate back in and refit, then off for DPF software delete Simples.

And wear a proper respirator or you'll have a few health problems after disturbing all the nasty particles when youve smashed the insides out! ;)

Youre welcome Lenny.

I honestly cant wait to have the DPF sorted! No worries about limp modes and regen issues or costly replacements! :)
Everybody raves about the performance and economy increase after having this done.

The place im getting it done have promised to try their best to keep the internals intact for me (wrapped tightly in a sealed bag) so that in the highly unlikely case of me needing to put it back, ive always got it there as a back up.

I suggested a through pipe go them but they insisted on keeping the DPF casing intact for MOT (visual) purposes....

Hope you can get them to do as you ask!!
