    you'd need to divert the coolant ways,and have a tubular blank made up to blank the manifolds end and side port..i'm not sure about TECH2'ing it out like you can the Z22's...

    as they don't fail or soot quickly like the Z19DT's can i ask why you want to do this?..

    usually a decent decoke session of the upper manifold and the EGR restores operation and factory 'power'..For an independant report on the difference of 'before and after' the cleaning treatment PM Daywalker as his 2.2dTi siggy had the 'works' at my place..

    My mates car has been diagnosed with a faulty EGR valve, £350 for the part from VX so hes been told! I can get one for £220 but still a lot of money. Looks like he needs a headgasket as well

    headgasket will be a bu##er.....

    have to popped the EGR to see if it's just faulting due to being gummed..

    they rarely fail completely, just flag a code as they can't move due to oil/soot sludge build up..
