    Default Another EGR valve question

    guys i have a 1.9cdti 150bhp engine. i dont think that i have a problem with my egr however if so many ppl are blanking it off i fancy doing it cause anything to help performance will be good so if i get the plate and gasket from fiat and remove the egr what do i do with it once the plate is fitted? i mean do i unplug and set it aside or what. sorry for a repeat question. should i do this or not bother?

    I personally,wouldn't use the Fiat gasket,some members have had problems with them.I have used the oval 2mm aluminum gasket you can buy off ebay,(£3),with an 8mm hole drilled in the centre.It stops most of the exhaust gases from getting into your valve and keeps the EML off.So far,I've had no problems whatsoever.Fitting it at the inlet side is a lot easier as well,you just have to loosen the 4 body bolts on the EGR so you can get it in place,and,you don't need to use a gasket.Just make sure that you don't over tighten them when you are fastening it all back together again.

    the blank gaskets just replace the old ones you have to refit the egr valve (i think this is what you mean )
