Has anyone any experience of EGR blanking on the 3.0tdi. As far as I can see the EGR provides Nox reduction at the expense of worse fuel economy, a less responsive engine and loads of sooty greasy crap in the intake.
I did a quick blank off of mine today ( using thin shim inbetween the TB and EGR pipe) and it ran better, smoother and better MPG.
Only downside was MIL light was on and VCDS showed EGR insufficient flow..... no surprise there then!
Does anyone know what the long term effect of blocking it off would be? would it damage the cooler / change over valve / EGR valve?
anyone any experience of this?
