for blanking the EGR, you will get more responsive throttle response, especially off the line ( I was shocked at the difference). It will also help mpg, and reduce long term clogging up of your engine. You can also get EGR restrictor ( the same plates with small holes in), these give some of the benefits, but mean you don't need some sort of dongle or remap to stop the engine light coming on.

So just to clarify, if I get the EGR blanked I will have to get a re map done to stop the EML coming on ? I do not want a re map as the gear box might not be bale to cope as I get a constant whining noise in 6th gear (only).
EGR restrictor plates to go forward then ..

YOu can get a dongle instead, I have one of these fitted, can remove whenever you want.
Alternatively get a restrictor plate instead of a full blanking plate, some of the advantages, but no re-map or dongle required.
