    Good luck getting the EGR off the car. I had to give up on mine. Stuck solid, which is a shame as I'd love to give it a good clean.

    Just did the EGR Valve, boost sensor and inlet manifold on my 2.2 Dti 2002 with 90K, The sensor and inlet manifold was clogged up quite bad, egr not so bad.

    Results are that it's smoother on the low revs and gear 1 and 2 (all I tested) picked up a bit better.

    I wasnt really having any problems with boost but was bored today, and happy I did it!
