I hope you can help me.
I've had an ongoing issue which has the following symptoms:
Hesitance in acceleration specifically between 1500 - 2200RPM
When sat at 70MPH on the motorway and around 2000RPM, a
pulsing sound from the exhaust
Black smoke when accelerating hard
CAR EGR ERROR
Audi A4 2.0TDI 140BHP 2006 model, B7 shape, BRE engine
The car has had a full s/steel exhaust system fitted, including decat.
The manifold had been taken out and fully cleaned of all gunk/soot (about 18 months ago now and I do 12k miles a year)
I uploaded a Stage2...
Hi mate, thanks for the reply. I went down the route of springs and uprated dampers, as coilovers are so expensive and I had read reports that they can be overhard, whereas progressive springs like Eibach and H&R give decent comfort.
I don't mind too much swapping springs but don't want to go...
My Audi A4 (B7) is lowered -30mm on Eibach springs.
The ride and handling are great but the car still sits too

i went for a 30mm all round drop on my A4 on eibach springs, as i didn't want to compromise ride...
I have an update....
I asked Superchips if they could write in an EGR delete into my remap. They charged me £50 plus VAT and promptly sent me the new map. I used my Bluefin device to d/load the new map to my car.
The engine warning light disappeared but the car was still going...

I wonder if anyone can help?
Yesterday, I had the EGR valve blanked off using two blanking plates.
The chap that did the work is a mate that works for Audi. Admittedly, he had not performed this mod before but obviously knows where everything is, etc. Anyway...
i have a superchips bluefin for my 2.0TDI and the improvement in torque and performance is really noticeable! i also had fitted a turbo-back 2.5" bore st/steel exhaust system and now the car is a real flying machine! lol
