    Default Reddot or mpg

    Hi

    Im looking to get a remap next month and not sure who to use...

    Midpointgarage quoted me £660 for egr valve to be removed and blanked,boost valve cleaned a k&n air filter with remap and rolling road.

    Reddot quoted £300 for a remap not sure if they can blank off the egr valve?

    Can anyone give advice or feed back on either? Also would a decat give slightly more power with the remap?

    Going into RED-DOT tomorrow.
    I asked for the EGR to be disabled as i have blocked it off.
    A decat will help it breath more. Remove both. Possible increase in MPG.

    Put a plate in between the exhaust inlet and the EGR. This is the DIY method.
    When you have the remap, they disable the EGR so it remains shut.
    DPF removal is being done by the remapper:

    Just an oval plate with no hole in it for the EGR made out of an old biscuit tin.
    I replaced my cat with a straight through pipe and the front cat you just undo the down pipe and smash the honey cone out of DPF
    There are numerous threads on the site about these jobs and more

    Where did you get your decat pipe? will you be getting the DPF removed from the ecu when you have your remap?
