so this m

 

Its not a waste of time as it stops the exhaust gasses going into the inlet

 

However, If a second plate is added as well it means the exhaust gasses do not come up to the other side of ther plate and are "stopped" closer to the exhaust - this keeps the exhaust heat energy in the exhaust and reduces the volume between the exhaust valves and the turbine - reducing turbo lag / improving throttle response

 

Altough removing the EGR pipe would be better (because removing it reduces the heat transmission from the exhaust to inlet) you can still fit 2 EGR blanking plates (one at each end) and leave the pipe in, and it would be an improvement over just one plate on the inlet side and difficult to spot as the EGR pipe is still there     

so this means we should buy 2 blanking plates?are they identical or they are different?thanks

Believe they are the same plate, as the fitments are no different as I understand it.

Yeah stick with one plate for now, block off the EGR at the engine and leave it at that for the meantime.

Hi Lenny

Just been to get a new EGR fitted on my Fiesta. Does this modification you talk about mean the EGR is no longer needed? Like it won't be used?
I'm new to all this do it yourself car stuff

Thanks
Scott

Hi Andy,

 

Its normally under the scuttle panel, at the back of the engine, top right of the engine block area.

Hi Scott,

 

If you have the solid blanking plate, this stops the exhaust gas going through the EGR, if you have the partial block (with a hole in the middle) then you still use it but with less gas.

 

Theoretically, if your car throws no error codes for the EGR, you could apply a blanking plate at both ends, and remove the EGR unit altogether.

600+ blanking plates sold by the ebay seller! - not bad (seems its not just us fitting them!)

 

you could definately fit 2 solid blanking plates (one at eack end) and remove the EGR pipe on that design

What concerns me about this plate is it fits at the exhaust (hot) end and its made of aluminium, which can melt/ has a lower melting piont than steel - i would rather fit a stainless steel one (solid, of course)

Received my plate from Poland, installed it into the car and noticed an earlier torque.

I also installed the Pipercross Ford Focus RS breather onto my 1.6TDCI. and did a remap.

Currently have 139hp and 325nm without the RS breather and the EGR blanked.

So I'm quite happy with the Focus, I'm thinking to put the Eco badge back onto the car.  :P

Hi guys, my obd 2  tells me that the EGR sensor A circuit low, p0405..and the boost pressure only goes upto 6 kP at its highest, basically the car struggles to go up hill or to pick up speed during take off and the turbo actuator however, seems to work ok because it moves to the down position when the motor is reved and then goes back to the up position after engine is turned off, what could it be with the loss of boost pressure.

 

Another thing is that if I blank the EGR and unplug the harness, will it affect the perfomance of the engine in anyway...by the way the EGR valve is shown also to be stuck in the closed position according to P042f despite the fact that the valve itself is very free to move up and down when its dettached from the stepper motor so was thinking to just blank it out...any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thankx. this is focus 1.6 tdci sport 2007

If you blank it off, you dont need to disconnect the sensor, however the error you have means that you might already have a defect that needs resolving first.... otherwise it probably will throw  some screwey errors...

ok I understand, also the turbo boost pressure has not been to its maximum like it was before it went into limp mode, this happened when the turbo had started getting too wably(impeller) and I changed it but its still struggles to get up to speed, only when it reaches over 50mph does it only start to feel like a turbochrged engine and even then it still struggles to reach 70mph and I drive it at those speeds everyday to and from work for 30 miles, could it still be in limp mode?...

 

What does this remapping do to an engine could it be that it need that.

Sounds like a blockage in the dpf mate,
Remapping would give more performance but a blocked dpf can cause back pressure in the turbo leading to cavitations within the compressor housing
