Thanks for the re-assurance Lenny.
Sounds like nothing but positives with this then as you have said.... think i'll get the socket set out! :)
Your MPG is very impressive! Is that mixed or mainly motorway??

Mainly motorway,
And I use the boost gauge to shift gear before boost increases too much,
Try to keep her between 100-110 kmh on the motorway and 80-90kmh on other roads,
So 68mpg is the best I can do :lol: 59mpg if I drive like I don't care

Hahaha. :D

Oh yeah, its 60 MPH on the motorways in Ireland isnt it. I find the traffic flows much much better in Ireland than over here! Much more relaxed and hardly any tailgaiting!

The difference is huge!

74.57mph on the motorway to be exact on the speed limit yeah :lol: that's 120kmh
Try driving on the motorway in the late 90's when people had jobs to go to,
That was tailgaiting,
Some people need lessons on roundabouts though,
Outer lane is for the next exit,
Some stay in outer lane for the full rotation.

Haha! Them lead feet are a nightmare! :)

I was over in Dublin (Blanchardstown) the other week and the motorways were almost empty by the looks of it! The amount of cars still parked up outside peoples homes in the morning monday to friday is shocking!

Shows what sort of state the country is in and its sad to see.

Luckily, I didnt encounter any large roundabouts so I survived ok! LOL

Hi all,

I recently fitted a blanking plate to my 2009 1.6tdci 109bhp, and i had to remove plate as its showing up P042f code(blocked EGR).

Now the light comes on dailey after a couple of miles so i have to remove with a D900 reader. I did clean the EGR after taking of for the third time to check for sticking but is not blocked or sticking. So what do i do now to keep the light off?

 

Help?

Looks like you have the worst of all possible possible worlds-   Just put the solid plate back on - that will stop the inlet getting contaminated with carbon, and help eliminate flat spots, hesitation, and improve performance/ economy -  as for the light - just ignore it - at least you will have the benifits of a solid plate

Someone correct me but if its a later model, '08 onwards, can cause engine malfuction light and limp mode.......

A lad posted on here a couple of days ago reporting the above issue which he still hasnt resolved after fitting the blanking plate.

A solid EGR blanking plate will not cause limp (home) mode - that is just a nonsense/ garbage rumor that has was spread around forums - like the posts suggesting that a 1-litre ecoboost is too powerful for its size/ will wear out/ blow up - total garbage - engines are getting smaller/ more powerful

 

It can be removed via a complete rewrite of the ECU but I dont believe it can just be disabled...

 

We need to send out the BatFoca signal for FOCA to come along! lol

I was in the FOCA-cave working on the FOCA-mobile - adding more power/ a few more modifications, as there is not enough :lol:

For what it's worth guys I have a 2002 1.8 tdci an I fitted a blanking plate. I've done 10k with it installed and have found subtle but noticeable improvements all round. Never had any error codes or issues.

Thanks for feedback Ryan,
Look forward to a 0.3km per litre increase,
Have you upgrade your induction filter yet?

Not yet that's my next purchase planned then it's a full samco hose kit and a gen 3 air tech intercooler to follow prep work going forward for a hybrid turbo not going mental but 170bhp is the aim and 300lb per ft of torque by this time next year :-)

Sounds good but very expensive mate,
Samco don't make kits specific to the 1.6TDCi I've asked them across the years with no joy,
And you will need to upgrade your clutch too, I considered a hybrid turbo but given the extras involved I bought another project car instead,
I wish you luck though and I'll be watching the progress.

Cheers Lenny I've looked high and low to so I've decided to do it the old fashion way and use calipers and tape measure and order the sizes that way :-) expensive is the word hence it's going to be a year long project along with overtime at work :-/
