I can't remember who it was or what forum it was.
But someone somewhere told me about a EGR blank they are using on their TDI Audi.
It was a genuine VAG.
What it this forum?
i got a spare ebay blanking plate,I have just got rid of the egr altogether.Made it from the ends of the egr welded together,and a longer than oem silicone hose
my blank was leaking oil aswell,hence why i got rid of the egr totally,maybe you can do the same?
