    Default EGR and boost sensor cleaned thanks to Grimo72

    Well Steve (Grimo72) came through to my house and supervised me removing the EGR and boost sensor and giving them both a ****** good clean !! I can't believe how much cack was on them both. Took the car out for a spin afterwards and it was loads better (Steve says he needs to do his now as mine seems much faster than his now hahaha)....
    Still got the solenoid to drill as it's a bit sticky but seems to have free'd up a bit already (good old WD40)-maybe it will loosen a bit after a few journey anyway ? That'll be a job for another day though if not..
    Will upload a few dirty pictures of the EGR and boost sensor later...

    Big thanks to Steve (Grimo72) for all his help

    the 150 looks easier as its only a pipe in the way not the egr unit like on the 120 im gonna drop the egr out the way first clean boost sensor and see how that goes then do the egr at a later date
