    Blanking the egr valve off?????

    Hi all, am i right in thinking a fair few of you's have blanked the egr valve off, if so what is the benefits of this, is it as simple as taking off and fitting a blanking plate or is there other things to reroute or take into account, could some one walk me through the procedure , cheers stu.

    Doing mine next week

    As far as i have read, it is straight forward. Just unbolt, fit the plate and rebolt it back on

    Will be doing the Mr Muscle cleaning too :-)

    i made a plate for mine

    i took the egr pipe off and made a plate the same size as the fitting with two holes drilled

    then fitted it between the pipe and the exhaust manifold simple

    Please can somebody tell me. To blank off the egr do you need 1 blanking plate or 2? And do you place it at the bottom of the egr pipe, if you need 2 where do you put the other one?

    Thanks

    If your blanking it off your better with 2 plates , 1 for the top and 1 for the bottom , then you can take the pipe right out and the plates will fit better, also makes life easier to do the blanking as there is not alot of flex in the pipe to slip the blanking plate in between.

    For the extra couple of quid get 2 plates.

    I blanked mine off about 2 weeks ago, 1.9 130bhp, felt better when blanked but i took them out again, about 10 miles after i put them in the engine managment light came on. If you have a light come on it will need reset with Vagcom.

    If your not worried about the light then go for it.

    why not just remove the sucking pipe that activates the EGR and put a screw up the open end of the pipe to keep the air pressure in order?

    I blanked my 1.9
    Got engine management light on after about 15 miles

    Anyone know how to sort this, or is it just a case of taking the plate back out?

    Would taking the pipe out completly and blanking both ends stop the light from coming back on?
