EGR ecu disable methods

Hi y'all.

I am sucessfully running the new (2010) pierburg MAF OE replacement sensor with no problems at all, excellent mpg and power.

The continual problem that is plaguing me is since the engine rebuild, we ditched the EGR and oil recirc. The ecu is obviously measuring slightly too much air being sucked through the MAF compared to what it should be with the EGR ( I rekon the EGR makes up 40% of the air mass on idle).

What is the easiest remap method / tune to rid the ecu of the expected air intake quantity checking / EGR fault causing hoojimawhips

Very tempted in the future to try a standalone ECU and loom, give me a MicroSquirt ecu anyday

1.9 JTD M-Jet 16v 140ps.
Gas flowed head, Polished valves, Port matched manifolds, New Turbo.
JS-T primary Decat, MrZ full-bore Center Decat , Oil recirc tank, Big filter conversion.

With EGR removed you should be seeing around 450-500mg/inj of airflow at idle. And with EGR active it should be around 300mg/inj. Check the values with your MAF.

If you want to remove the EGR completely you will need a remap, no other way. It is simple job really, but you need to know which switches to tick...

And forget the standalone ECU. Not worth it, because you can do everything with your stock ECU...

I'm not aware of 16V much, but only proper way is to switch off the EGR bit in ECU config switchboard (all software).

Raising the EGR map values will make the valve not to open, but the DTC will still be there.
Not necessary if you already have blanking plate.
