    Remap alone (including EGR disablement) makes a huge difference if done properly, even if cat etc all left as standard. That is if it is done properly! A forum member had his car tuned by one of the more popular companies and was quite disatisfied with the result - no torque below 2000rpm, and unpredictable delivery above 2000rpm. He got an MPPS to read his ecu and sent me the file and I was appalled by what I saw. I redid it properly for him free-of-charge and he wrote it to his car, and is much happier now.

    What mods would you suggest before the map? i have Pipercross panel filter, and was going to order EGR blank and Downpipe, but was also thinking about a front mount like in the link below, or would there be no point with the standard turbo? Which is the best blank to get, the oval one that goes on the pipe with 2 holes or the bigger one that goes between the egr and manifold?

    I don't see the point of fitting holed blanking plates - as per one of my old threads on egr principles, the ecu will just open the valve further or for longer duration to achieve the required flow and hence compensate for the restriction. if the ecu can't achieve the amount of flow requested by the egr map, it will illuminate the MIL.
