Turbo whistling during winter is a result of the colder much denser air adding power increase directly increasing boost pressure.

 

Michael it's really hard to say what the prob could be until the car is properly examined and exhaust checked sorry to hear egr blanking did not produce the results you were hoping for bro, i know that feeling

I know mate. I. Gutted it hasnt worked out the way I wanted!

Do you think the re-mapper would be able to diagnose my problem or am I best taking her to a diesel specialist?

Thing is, if I take it to a specialist, theyre more than likely going to diagnose a DPF issue and try to fleese me of my hard earned cash!

Aw mate dont say that! :D

What do you think could be the problem?
Its so strange how blanking my EGR has had the complete opposite effect to what 99.9% of people experience.
Could it be my injectors out of sync or something along them lines and if so, how do I find that out?
Should I remove the blank and have the DPF removed and ecu remap but NOT remove the EGR software?

Glad (in a friendly way) that yours also sounds like a tractor in this weather! LOL

If you have the DPF deleted that will eliminate that, if that is your problem, if it is something else, at least you car rule the DPF out and look elsewhere for the fault  

 

Better to blank the EGR, having a working one is bad news for all sorts of reasons, including the inlet getting contaminated/ eventually choked with carbon

 

Your loss of MPG may be completely unconnected with the EGR and may be simply a coincedance - best to have it blanked, especially if you are going to go for a DPF delete/ remap as you can get the electronic EGR delete done at the same time as your remap

Ok FOCA. I'll get the DPF deleted, remap and EGR electronically deleted in January as planned and report back then.

Not a lot more I can do until then really.....

Fingers crossed for me guys! LOL

I fully understand and accept it but my friend is an MOT tester so it isn't an issue for me. :)

It is my intention to delete the DPF as I have suggested, run the car for the next 3 - 4 years DPF and fault free, then, when it comes to selling, I will buy a cheap DPF off ebay, remove the remap and re-install the original software and sell the car.

Thats the plan and i'm sticking to it.........

Very very true but when your car is your p & j you will spend any amount to keep her running well.

Its how it should be! :)
