    120 or 150, 120 egr needs a clean /150 swirl flap rod + egr needs cleaning. plenty of posts on site for guidance try the how to section there's egr and boost sensor cleaning in there, also a guide to fix your swirl flap bar for a few quid.

    If you're not mechanically minded. or too skint for a garage pocket emptying session.......put some Millers additive in a tank of the expensive diesel, and then take the car for a thrash, hard through the gears...........theres a good chance that'll clean it out enough to get your performance back. Works for me
