You dump nasty carbon into your inlet manifold and back through your engine,  ;)

Thanks George. Won't it seriously affect your emissions though? If the excess NOx isn't able to be dispersed?

theres pros and cons with everything, I understand the reasoning behind egr valves, I just dont agree with the method they use, after all, years of carbon/air mix going back through your induction clogging everything up and causing increased wear aint going to do you any favours with a emission test is it.

Yeah completely agree. I just meant would it affect an emissions test for an MOT. If not then it makes sense to do imo :)

I Havant heard of one failing yet been blanked but thats not to say it cant and wont happen, any car can fail a emission test for a multitude of things these days but keeping it well serviced and the occasional blast out all helps, not servicing your car and driving like miss daisy 24/7 does not.

Completely agree mate! Talking of servicing I have a couple of Qs if that's ok.... I've been told NGKs are appropriate for this car. They good to use? And the air filter looks to have a small filter about the size of 4 oxo cubes next to it (looks like a breather filter as a breather line comes out of the valve cover to the air filter assembly).....if I buy an OE air filter will it come with a replacement breather filter?

A replacement pad filter (as Ford call it) doesn't come as a standard air filter kit afaik.

From Ford it is part (Finis) number 1694449 and is about £1.75.
