    Not sure what happened to mine, it died after my oil pump went. I'm getting my car part exchanged so I want to do it as soon as possible and the garage is pressuring me to get it repaired so they can take it as part exchange.

    I have emailed them, the problem is everyone is on holiday including mechanics. I'm having trouble finding any at a decent price, there's one for sale on eBay that's £330 but it will take a few weeks to be delivered as it's from Germany and the garage is pressuring me to get it fixed but I'm pretty limited to what I can do because everyone is on holiday.

    Tell them they have to wait. It's the holiday season so how can they expect you to sort it out that fast.

    That's why I got mine refurbd it hadn't gone it just had a little whine to it and if pushed hard threw a over boost code and limp mode the variable turbo vines will have been car boned up so instead of cleaning them as the car has 110.000 miles on original turbo and wanting to remap I thought I'd get it sorted for piece of mind eh

    I had mine deleted by Rick @ Unicorn Motor Dev Top bloke and great service.

    once the EGR is deleted buy some blanking plates and blank the EGR off and bypass the cooler. I removed mine on my old car as they are prone to leak

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    when replacing the turbo replace the oil feed pipe as well! (they are like £30 or £35) also check the oil return pipe. a oil and oil filter service is required to keep your warranty for your new turbo.

    to remap the EGR valve out and bypass the EGR cooler ? I know when they go wrong they are expensive thats why I had mine mapped out. your best contacting Rick for a price.

    My cooler is suspected to be fooled, going in on Thursday for a diagnosis - if so that might be the cheaper option > plus my heaters inside the car are very poor ?

    So it may not be cooler > unless someone has a better idea ?

    well if it is the cooler they can bypass it there are 2 rubber pipes get them to link them together with hose joiner and cutting the pipe back to bypass the EGR cooler. then if that solves the problem you will need to remap the EGR out of it and remove the cooler.

    if the EGR cooler is leaking then you will loose boost as exhaust gasses are escaping through the cooler into the cooling system.

    I would remove it regardless. once the EGR is mapped out you will still have to keep it connected but you will need to fit a blanking plate that Rick will do I think. my EGR cooler went and it was about £200 for a quote. and the EGR valve is about £200 just to buy.
