    1. Yes.

    2. Yes.

    3. Have a quick search on this very question, there are numerious threads on this very thing (they are for the 150, buts its the same principal). I'm not being 'arsey' telling you to search, when you see the threads you'll know why.

    No he won't

    Yes he will.

    Assuming the thread doesn't get trolled, then the amount of hot air saved will offset most of our car's emissions for quite some time

    Slightly more on topic, if you do blank the EGR, you can get it mapped out of the ECU to get rid of the error message / light.

    The 120's seem to get fewer problems than the 150's, presumably as they don't have swirl flaps in the manifold.

    Unless it is causing you problems or you are having a remap anyhow, I would leave it.
