    Default Do i blank my egr at the exhaust inlet or the manifold?.

    It's been doing my head in trying to sort out the bottom line on EGR blanking.What I want to know is this:My EGR is working OK at the moment,but,I don't want to wait (or should I),till it all goes pear shaped,before blanking it off.AND,if I do blank it off,would it make any difference if it was blanked off at the exhaust inlet or at the manifold itself?.PPPPlllleeeeaaase!!!!!,
    Somebody help me,I need to know.FELIXX.

    Might not help you Felixx as mines a 2.2 petrol... But as for the engine running "slightly" hotter etc, mines blanked and gets to running temp a lot quicker too. So that can only be better for the engine IMO...

    Doesn't matter which side, but the inlet side leaves less to chance.

    Come on, pull your finger out

    Me thinks I will do the Dastardly Deed,(Notice the sardonic irony with the use of the capitals DD)?,at the exhaust inlet.If anyone thinks that I should do it at the manifold itself,please let me know,thanks.

    The easiest place to blank the EGR on a 1.9 CDTi (150) is on the inlet side of the EGR where the oval gasket is, you only need a rectangular strip of steel no more than 1 mm thick which is just narrow enough to fit between the two bolts.

    Use a high temperature gasket compound ideally suited for exhaust systems or two oval gaskets, one each side of the rectangular strip.
    The reason for a rectangular strip is that it allows you to hold the blanking plate by the part that is too long if you get what I mean whilst inserting it between the flanges, this also makes it easy to remove if you should ever need to since the excess strip is sticking out.
    You will also have to slacken the 4 bolts holding the egr onto the inlet manifold as it can be quite difficult to get the blanking strip in.

    Thanks everyone for your help.I know how heated this subject can get, (I've spent quite some time reading the other threads going back to "06"),and it seems that the EGR issue will always be controversial.However,as it's been pointed out on many,many occasions that I can see,there doesn't seem to be a solid argument for not doing it.
    I was talking to a technical manager at my local vx dealership today,(I was picking up the EGR gaskets),and he was very matter of fact about blanking and told me that they used to do it, but hadn't done any now for a long time,but if I wanted to have the EGR mil warning light function deleted from my ECU,to "let the girl on reception know when I next booked it in for a service" and they would do it!.
    I know that even though the discussions do get heated at times,there always seems to be that undercurrent of "lets take the p**s" attitude, but manage to remain serious at the same time. FELIXX.
