Lenny has done one for the Focus mk2 1.6 TDCI

 

I don't know how yours differs but if you post some pictures we may be able to help you with it -  

 

And if you take pictures as you go along you could produce a guide for others to follow

Yup.

 

I cursed and threatened to scrap my car, because for my engine it was a true PITA job to do, having done it though, I am over the moon, MPG is greater, response is better, and I get less smog out the rear end!

You put it in the EGR outlet at the engine:

 

So you have at the moment:

 

ENGINE BLOCK --- EGR

 

What you would be looking to do is insert the blanking plate like this ( || is the blanker)

 

ENGINE BLOCK -||-EGR.

 

Most plates have it written on them which side is up, engine side and EGR side, so this should help you.

Ive just read a couple of things on different forms that says you shouldn't blank a egr if u have a dpf, but my thinking is if u do have a dpf like me then wouldnt exhaust gases going threw the engine again do more harm than good?

To be honest there is a lot of misinterpretation on these things. The EGR valve is there to recirculate the exhaust gas once more, the exhaust temperature is hot, therefore hot gas entering the engine means its easier for the engine to compress with the diesel, theoretically its good. As for emissions, the EGR recirculating these gasses, means that the exhaust gets a second chance of burning off the nasty crud that would otherwise leave the system. The DPF removes further particulates that escape the recirculation process and cleans the rubbish to save the planet a bit more.

 

Blanking the EGR with a DPF is no big deal, you just need to make sure you give the car a chance to passively regenerate. For example, if like me, you have a 30 mile commute and a lot of motorway miles, it works (if I had a DPF) I could passively regenerate daily, but if I was driving 5 miles in town to the office, and then back, had a DPF and an EGR, then it wouldnt be so good, because the DPF would be capturing more of the cack, and not having a chance to break it down, in essence, that could cause the DPF to choke, and need early replacement.

shouldnt be too bad then to be honest, given that Lenny who wrote the guide, blanked his EGR ages ago, and he is just going for a DPF removal in a week or so, but he hasnt had any issues at all!
