    Default Removing or modding EGR valve on 1.9 cdti?

    Can I remove it completely or will the ECU have a fit?

    Can I partially block it off?

    Cheers,

    G

    Can't be done, the emission control will take a wobbler. When I had mine remapped the remapper spent an hour trying to trick and map out the EGR, but the ECU wouldn't have any of it.

    You could do that maybe on the petrol ones (as I did with an old Vectra B I had) but not with the CDTi's.

    The remap from Regal gets rid of it so it is possible to Tech2 it out if you know how. I asked Regal and they basically told me to F off

    I somehow doubt the remap "gets rid of it", as Regal's remap is a EDS map, and the one I had was also an EDS.

    Tech2 might be able to pull down the EGR rates, but cutting it out totally is an ECU rewrite, not a remap.

    Well Regal state it removes the EGR Valve and several forum members have had it done.

    I would ask Regal if they will update your remap for you

    Nah, I think I'll pass. I doubt the car's current owner would appreciate me taking it to England to have it's map fiddled with.
