    I gave mine a real good clean out and fitted the fiat gaskets with the hole, I get the spanner light on every so often (presumably becuase of the restricted flow) and sometimes get the egr fault code but it clears after 20 starts, I play a game now guessing when it will come on and off.

    I've just bought a 120. And want to blank the EGR.
    Cant believe you've got 177 out of it!! Will your MPG be effected, much?

    He might have 177 or he might not, without road wheel figures to compare it's a pointless figure and it's just that he is happy with the performance that you should look at.

    dont bother blanking it the eml will come on just get it professionally remaped and who ever does it should be able to turn off the egr system and still tops 55mpg on a run at 70 to 80 without cruise on 177bph at the wheels bmc panel filter precat removed (still passes mot) silicone bost hoses a selection of supporting mods and a terraclean runs like a dream really smooth 0-60 in roughly 7 secs 280ftlbs of tourque in 1st & 2nd and 3rd upwards 360ftlbshope this helps

    Surely having a light on thd dash is better than the egr clogging the intake with carbon etc ?thats my view on it anyway, And also it is better to have a blank in there aswell as it mapped out as they can still be open slightly

    i dont know mines fine and i get it terracleaned regular so i never see a problem but i guess it could open very slightly but not that its worth worrying about

    Is the terraclean any good ? And tbh i think its more for if the valve is stuck open before its mapped out so i suppose if there is no issue before there shouldnt be one once its mapped
