    My 2.2 Direct Signum needed the inlet manifold replaced last year, the swirl flap motor had failed.

    In all, it cost 700 quid, which fortunately my 3rd party warranty covered.

    The fix also involved removing the EGR valve and blanking the port on the engine block where it used to have the pipe connected to the manifold.

    There's supposed to be an ECU firmware update too to prevent it getting upset about the missing EGR valve.
