EGR Off at Autolusso
Just completed a 300 mile round trip to get the EGR mapped off on my wife 2.0 JTDM at Autolusso and have to say I'm thoroughly impressed. The technician carried out a diagnostic prior to the remap with no errors but noticed that when the cambelt had been changed 2 months ago, the local Inde had done this with Tippex as a marker to maintain the cam timing rather than use the specialist locking tool. Neds advice was that they check and adjust the timing if necessary prior to mapping out the EGR - turned out the timing was slightly out.
Anyway had this done and the EGR mapped out.
Not sure if it was the adjustment to the timing, mapping the EGR off, or a combination, but the throttle response is a noticeably crisper in 1st and 2nd, the car no longer bogs down so less revs needed when pulling away and the MPG appears better. On the drive back to Derbyshire I got 55 MPG - couldnt believe it!!! . Athough this was helped by 20 miles of 50 MPH through the M1 roadworks and I did stick to 70mph elsewhere with a bit of stop start traffic. On the way to Autolusso I only got 48mpg and that was driving like Miss Daisey.
Regardless of the MPG situation would recommend Ned and the Autolusso team - wish they were nearer.
