1.8Tdci Egr Valve Blanking

6 posts in this topic

I know this topic has been done to death on other forums, but has anyone actually inserted an EGR blanking plate on a S=Max 1.8tdci? If so have you noticed any benefits?

Given the reputed benefits, I am considering doing this on my 2006 1.8tdci with 80,000 on the clock.

Thanks for any feedback.

not that I have an S-MAX, but we have the thread over on the Focus guides forum about this, and everyone compliments it. I drive a 1.6 TDCI C-MAX (closer to the SMAX than a focus I guess!) but although it was a nuisance to do, it was well worth it, improved MPG, better throttle response and generally feels smoother!

Thanks for the response. I will have a look at the Focus forum. One thing I had heard and was somewhat concerned about was that the combustion temperature rises as a result of installing the blanking plate and operating on pure air and this can apparently lead to Turbo damage? Any comments?

it increases the turbo and its response, but I cant say I have heard of any detrimental effect on the turbo

I use to get low boost pressure come up as an error, that was before installing the plate, since then I have had no turbo related error codes
