    Default thinking of blanking the egr....help needed

    can some tell me where i put the homemade gaskets?

    there is a pipe of the exhaust manifold that goes round the side of the head on to the egr valve, where do i put the blocking gaskets???

    do i remove the egr completly and blank all the pipes?

    or do i leave the egr in place and just slip the new homemade gaskets inbetween???

    cheers guys

    You will need to place the solid gaskets but leave connected. It will show a fault light but thats it.

    My 150 has inlet from exhaust, this is the one i would blank, and then outlet to manifold, which I would not think is necessary, but may blank whilst egr was off.

    You have the option of blanking the exhaust side of the EGR, or the inlet manifold side - both will have the same effect, but I chose the inlet manifold side as it would be less suseptible to the hot gasses and would 'seal' the EGR best, as it rules out any leaks with the EGR itself (which does happen with the gold coloured piece at the end).

    You can make a gasket yourself, then simply remove the EGR valve as per normal, but when re-fitting, fit the blanking gasket with a std VX gasket either side (to make sure the seal is ok) then it will be blanked - leave it connected though.

    Hope this helps.
