There are restricted flow gaskets available from Fiat/Alfa, have a look at this thread
The seems to be some debate as to whether these things do anything, I've had them in mine for nearly 2 years now and IMO they do cut down on the cleaning required. Some say they make no diffrence, as the ECU wants to 'see' a certain amount of gasses in the inlet manifold via the EGR, and simply opens the EGR wider and longer to compensate for these gaskets.
The original gaskets are metal and fine to use them again. How much did you pay for the refurb'ed EGR, did you see my previous thread, new ones can be sourced for aound £90.
All the best
Loose - not close, compact, or tight in structure or arrangement
Lose - to part with or come to be without, as through theft, accident, negligence, etc.
