    Benefits is better fuel economy, smoother running, less black smoke on WOT acceleration. Bad points, car takes longer to warm up, especially when the weather drops, so not suited/recommended for TDi's that do short journeys.

    Process, 3 quid blanking plate off eBay, and 30 minutes under the bonnet for a beginner like me.

    the tdi 110 the egr valve and throttle body are one unit. If u fit an egr delete kit like the allard one you will get engine judder when you shut off the engine. Also the standard unit helps prevent your turbo running away. Ive got the allard kit on mine, no noticable difference to the way it drives, I just have a very clean inlet manifold. I wouldnt bother personally unless your egr is leaking

    Much better for the engine as it isn't chucking all the gunk back through everything. The egr just recirculates that already used gases from the engine. You're better off deleting it and let the engine breath fresh air constantly.

    the tdi 110 EGR valve sits separate. it bolts on to the side of the inlet manifold. are you sure you're car is a 110? has some one maybe fitted a pd inlet manifold?
    I have blanked the EGR valve on 3 110 TDi's and have noticed the difference on all of them.

    Both my 110s (asv) have had the unit as one, as did the new engine I just bought. 2 2001 cars and a 2000 plate
