Yep, not an advocate of blanking off but, blank it off, pain in the #### to do and expensive, part of the inlet manifold

So I'll have a very good car as my sport model has the Sony 6cd changer a bluetooth kit installed into the sound system and rear sensors hehehe I'm not very hands on usually so will this be easy for a novice and is it just the black section off the egr that is to be removed and can it be done on a driveway

It's just the little black section that is removed that causes all the issues? Liking some of your mods would love most of them on my car

not really any power gains, but the pick up is smoother at low rev range, the car doesnt feel like it wants to stall out when moving off
