    hi mate,
    don't put put off: i did a egr delete on my previous mk4 golf: looks tricky but once you know what you're looking at you're fine. you gain the fact that your intake won't be getting clogged up with s***e and i experienced *slightly* better throttle response. then again, it was a GT TDi... never really thought about doing it on my 1.8 tqs... maybe it's just my desire to keep it standard though :)

    Are you asking the same question as you did here?

    http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/a3-s3-...41-fitting-agu-lump-into-my-s3-need-help.html

    If so then as Tuffty says it's actually the SAI, take it you mean this

    Like I said on your other post. I've just done this with no problems.

    Also remove the SAI pump , and just used a 10w 470ohm restistor from Maplins 69p in the contector so the ECU doesn't throw up a fault code.

    Evap canistor you could as it requires a current to flow in order for ecu not to register. Air bag not sure as think it's a switch circuit so may just need shorting like the brake pad sensor etc

    Have a wanderround a local scrapper dude. Any N75 valve will do.... from any VAG varient as long as it's the same plug.
