    Is everything back tight? Is the EGR secure on the manifold and on the inlet pipe underneath (these have a habit of being a pain to situate in the correct position).

    You really need the fault code to check.

    What was done (if anything) to the EGR when it was off?

    You can fully blank them and it won't put into limp mode (on the 150).

    ok guys, i had the egr back off in case it hadn't been seated correctly, while i was at it i tried the old gasket again, the standard one, took it for a spin and nothing, foot to the floor and there was no power, took it off again gave it another clen and put the semi black gasket back on, back to what it was, power wasnt really what it was when i bought the car but better than the standard gasket

    did the air box mod and the pick up was a little better, ive ordered an k&n filter which should be here tomoro but now i have the check light back on, not the spanner light the other one, will this go out on its own or is there another problem
