Hi guys, I have a focus 2.0L TDCI, & wonder if it has an Egr valve, if so what would be the benefits if I fitted one, & also what happens to the engine if it has a blanking plate fitted,( like the end of the pipe where the Egr valve is fitted to) sorry but not quite certain what the gain is, & is it legal for MOT's ??. Hope some one can help, brian
It won't affect your
MOT,it makes your emission output improve.what the egr valve does is recirculates the exhaust gasses back through the engine which are dirty,making the engine combust crappy air and anyone with a brain can see that's no good for a car.not really sure what the point of it is to be honest.so blocking it off prevents that,making it use cleaner air instead of recycled air,maintaining parts inside better .
Ill be honest,you could do just as good a job making that sub enclosure yourself,the cuts dont even need to be laser like they say,the carpet will hide it an anyway.Few bits of MDF and an hours time wouldnt cost you anywhere near 75 quid lol
In the description it does say 2005-2011,not everybody calls them mk2.5.
Found the split and sorted it by putting a layer of wax/glue from a proper glue gun,used some super glue to help close it then put another layer of wax glue ontop to seal it,wrapped electrical tape around it then a bit of gaffa.fixed for now.
The split was hidden from view,and because it was right next to the moving belts there was no way of feeling the air escaping either.
