As we dont know anything about that engine setup, just a picture & seriously anyone looking at that pic would wonder what was what, then how would I/we know if any ideas any of us have to bounce of others including you, were already on that engine, maybe next time it would be prudent to remember this instead of silly comments as above, I'm trying to learn something here aswell as others from your experiences/research. Moving on, you said you'd removed the egr completely, also Lloyd today said you removed the whole egr system including the cooler & the solenoid valve block, so there was no catch can for the egr as such, could you please advise anything on this that may help us. My idea was (unknowing if you had done already of course) to not actually remove the egr from the car, just relocate it so it was still functional so no dash lights, then a catch can or some other way to vent the air through the egr system would catch the **** & the car would still think the egr was working perfectly normal as Allard today advised me you had dash lights popping up every so often, there quotes not mine, so maybe you could enlighten us if this was correct or not & what fix you did to counter this. I'm trying to achieve what you did with no dash lights, with the same benefits of the egr relocation etc & breather can. Ah I just had a closer look at that pic, I can now see the solenoid valve block bottom right, sneaky fecker, so did you block of the egr vacuum pipe to this or use it still but filter the gasses before entering the IM. You got anymore pics from different angles so I can work out a bit more. Thanks in advance.
