Gt Jtdm my 2 years ownship experiance

Done a lot to the car but far and away the best thing I did was to delete and block the EGR .I just checked the MAP I think its the MAP and not the MAF its fitted to the inlet and controls low speed boost .I had to get the inlet replaced over a year ago now as the swirl flaps went .When I got it back I cleaned the MAP it as it was covered in black gunk .Now the point I am trying to make is I removed it on Sunday to check it and its clean, no gunk, nothing on it at all .So all the black gunk the accumulates in your inlet when your ERG is working in no longer there .That's a result I think please feel free to correct me if I am wrong don't know a lot about engines .Its got to be the best thing you can do for your diesel engine .I have covered 30 thousand miles in that 2 years only had 1 breakdown .

yeh its the MAP sensor.
I agree, mine is blocked (but not deleted) and it is a big improvement compared to how it was. I periodically look at the map sensor but its never gunked up.
