    Make your own with alu plate or even a coke can etc drill a 6mm hole in the middle and then mark out the other 4holes for the bolts to go through and it's done free too mine works perfect with a 5mm hole in

    Winnie - How long would you expect a coke can cut-out to last for?

    Don't use coke can! It's too thin to leave in for more than a few hours driving. Your 6mm hole will grow in size and God knows what the burnt aluminium will be doing to your engine internals. I used 1.5mm stainless for my EGR gasket, with a 15mm hole to make sure I got no spanner light and burnt enough exhaust gas to keep the engine running cooler on part throttle.

    That's what I was thinking... A coke can would only last a few miles?

    I have used 1mm thick ally plate with only one 5mm hole in so it's practically blanked and have had no lights at all and the ally plate is fine no heat distortion at all and over 15000miles now coke can will be fine as my mates is using that and no probs if you want to be safe then get some ally plate and your egr and inletmanifold in ally if you use steel etc you could end up with disimilar metal corrosion as the atomic number o the metals are different I see alot of this with steel and aluminium at work also on your wheels where they corrode onto the rear drums is a prime example

    Started off with mine fully blanked and got MAP sensor error. Then took it up to 5mm hole, lasted a bit longer and then got same code. Ditto for 10mm and finally OK at 15mm. V6 obviously has more sensitive sensors.
