Sluggish '06 159 1.9 JTDm - DPF removal and re-map to bypass EGR valve?
Hi All, my í06 159 1.9 JTDm at 92k plus has started being sluggish, mainly in first and second gear Ė particularly at roundabouts where I least want it to be. Iíve read a few posts related to this and all seem to point to the 'EGR valve'. Iíve given it a good blast tonight, foot to the floor in all lower gears and it seemed to have cured it for the remainder of my journey home.
My question however is related to the DPF removal and ECU re-map. Iíve been tempted by this for a while now and reading the posts on here plus my drive home tonight has just enticed me more. Am I right in thinking that by having the re-map and DPF removed, part of the work is to by-pass the EGR valve? Thus killing 2 birds with one stone?! Excuse my mechanical logic here; Iím afraid I have very little.
Thanks in advance guys!
