    But then unplug it and you aint got any problems, light on the dash but no limp, no stuck swirl valves, no need for a new one again, oh and turbo spools quicker, and more power.

    in general before i replaced my inlet manifold i was having to take off my EGR every month or two!!, I'm now running it on either shell v power or bp ultimate, along with some injector cleaner periodically, I'm going to take the egr off now and again to check it just to see if there's any difference.

    There's not a lot wrong with the EGR its the dirty engine its fitted to!!, if you put the same valve on a clean burning engine you would probably never have to touch it.
