    You'll need the EGR mapped out, you can't remove it (without engine management light coming on) unless you asked for it to be mapped out at the time of the remap.

    The parts to block & pipe connector to remove the cooler are on eBay

    You shouldnt be paying out for another full remap as its only an update to your existing map. The EGR is programmed to stay fully closed and thats all it is. Should cost no more £50 to get the update IF that. I only charge for 1 hour labour and its a quick tweak to the map so no worries. Ask your tuner if they can do it for you and on't be fobbed off that it has to be a full remap because it doesnt need it. Update only mate

    It cost me £25 extra to get a egr removal after i had a remap, i dont think it requires a "full" remap. Ur better of going to remap guy to sort it. Hope it helps

    Okay I'll get it done then thankyou my coolant is slowly going over a month and its starting to let out a lot of steam and blue smoke until its warm. My mechanic told me usually the cooler causes this so I want to get rid of that anyway.

    Would be easier for the original tuner to update the map as he loaded it up. Just ask him as this shouldnt be a problem.
