In Topic: "engine Judder" Around 1800 Rpm

17 April 2014 - 08:10 PM

Just as a "heads up" although manymembers have reported, smother running, less smoke, and slightly better pick-up from lower revs some have reported a drop in mpg,  
 
It may be that the (slightly) better performance has a MPG impact, so the non-EGR blank needs to be compared like for like, with the same level of performance/ acceleration/ driving style  
 
Blanking the EGR may affect  the MPG readout on the trip computer (which can be notoriously inaccurate) best to use traditional methods (brim to brim etc) and measured by fuel amout, as fuel cost can go up (and up) so you get less and less fuel for the same money
 
And driving conditions, temp /  etc would have to be the same to make a fair comparison
 
Let us know how you get on
 
PS - you probably know already but the plates with the holes are no good (defeats the purpose) and the solid plates are best     


I have read the recent posts regarding MPG figures, and it has put me in to minds about fitting one.

I suppose the best thing is to try and see. Any recommendation for a good supplier?

Many thanks
