Post by Glen G » Thu Mar 14, 2019 9:06 pm

Hey lads general question..I a 07 caddy 1.9 TDI I want to delete the Egr valve. Just wanted some feedback is it worth doing.. Is there much work involved in doing it?

EGR delete is kinda pointless on the BLS as it doesn't really cause that much restriction. A much cheaper option is to buy a blanking kit and have the EGR removed from the ECU map.

It'll make +50bhp with a good map without doing anything like that.
A simple EGR blank and leave the cat where it is to avoid smoking and MOT problems would be my recommendation.
I am aware EGR blanking is a MOT failure but you can fit blanks in place of the factory gaskets and leave the whole system in place. That way it is undetectable from a visual inspection.

You can buy them off eBay, just don't go for anything very think if you're gonna leave your cooler attached, 1.5-2.0mm will be think enough. Once it's mapped out it'll not matter anyway.
