    I have my EGR electrically disconnected. This will bring on the eml light but if you can live with that, as I do, then it should be the same as totally blanking (assuming the valve is defaulted fully closed - which mine is). Just re-connect prior to MOT day. To me, this is the simplest method.

    Why not get it mapped off and blanked? It can actually still leak.

    Stops the manifold sooting up. Well worth it.
