    Default EGR Gasket Question.

    All, just a quick question with regard to the Fiat EGR gaskets / flow restrictors that can be fitted instead of the original Vauxhall open gaskets,
    from what I can see on various diagrams, it would seem that the Two Fiat gaskets are for completely separate applications / engines and that the intended fix is that the large (Oblong) gasket is for the 150 and that the smaller (Oval) gasket is for the 120 and that you should fit whichever one applies to your vehicle.

    Can anyone confirm this ?, I know that the smaller Fiat gasket can be fitted to the exhaust side of the 150 EGR but, if I'm right, in doing so could you not be having an adverse effect on engine performance by altering the desired effect that you would have assumed Fiat had put some thought / testing into ?,
    These are just my observations and I would welcome any thoughts / comments particularly from members that have fitted One or both to their vehicles,

    Regards,
    Saxman.

    You are right, the larger one is specifically for the 150 and the oval one is specifically for the 120. But by fitting either you are restricting flow to the EGR anyway, so why not the other aswell...?

    I have my EGR totally blanked with no adverse effects at all, so there are no issues with fitting one or both, many on here have many different variations of blanking gaskets on their EGR's with no adverse effects.

    The only issue is that some software versions seem to be a bit more sensitive and may flash the EML light (but not operation effects), I can count on one hand the number that have had this though.
