    Thumbs up Fitted Fiat EGR gasket.

    Just a quick post to say that i have fitted the fiat egr gaskets to my 150 cdti and its running better seems to be running smoother and have a bit more punch i also cleaned the boost sensor while i was at it so if anyone is considering doing this i would reccomend it as it didnt take long to do and there is noticable improvment to the way the car is running.

    Yes there is mate the fiat gasket is more like a blanking plate but has some small holes in it to let some exhaust gasses through so the ecu is not upset.

    I suspect that it's mainly the cleaning of the EGR valve & boost sensor that's making the car run better rather than the new gasket as such. The Fiat gasket should keep the system cleaner & running better for longer though as less exhaust gases will be recycled through and less soot deposited as a result.

    As a matter of interest did you fit both the normal & blanking gasket on the manifold side of the EGR & if so, which way round?

    i.e. Did you fit the blanking bit the manifold or EGR side of the normal gasket?

    I put the metal plate on then the other gasket so it was the normal gasket against the inlet manifold if that makes sense lol i removed the vx one as it was shot.
