    Default sensor cleaning

    Hi folks. Done the airbox mod n cleaned boost sensor yesterday n omfg what a difference it n the c**p that came off the sensor was unreal.
    The range on the turbo feels smoother n pulls more constant it used to have a flat spot between 2-3k revs thats gone now unsure about mpg being improved thou as it spends more time whistling like a window cleaner.
    But then got me thinking is there anymore accessible sensors that we can clean to improve them what do folk think.

    Clean the air mass meter. I did mine with a compressed air line to keep it dry.

    Also, remove and clean the EGR too.

    And check vac pipes for any splits / perishing

    Blanking my EGR made my engine alot smoother especially on startup, no longer feels like it's choking and about to cut out. Might be worth a look?

    Exactly what mine was doing before I blanked it.

    It may be a new EGR but that new EGR will still let in all the crappy carbon deposits that choke up your manifold.
