Most blanks have a very good response if installed correctly, otherwise you might see misbehaviour such as loss of power, error lights, smoke and excessive noice

Thanks for the reply do you know if the blank will affect starting as my egr valve got stuck and the car wouldn't start until it got tapped by a hammer

By this I presume you leave the egr fitted to the car but slide in the blank !

Correct. The blank is placed between the engine and the EGR valve itself. It doesnt affect starting (certainly not on our cars anyway!) I think it must have been having a different reason for failure at the time. If it was stuck open for example and the tap loosened it.
