EGR Removal

This has been done to death but cant find the answer on a search.

I have had the EGR blanked and deleted from the ECU so i was thinking could the Egr actually be physically removed from the engine?

Well I'm not so sure about it...

It depends how the EGR was deleted from the ECU. If it was turned off by "hysteresis maps" in the ECU then you can't remove the EGR, you will get MCSF error if you unplug it.
So try to unplug the connector from the EGR solenoid and check if you get any errors on the dashboard after you turn the engine on.

Thanks guys, it is blanked with a 3mm solid plate and i can see black sealant, thats on the manifold side but what do i do with the pipe that comes from the exhaust?

The wiring is already disconnected from the EGR.

It can be done...

I realise yours is a 156 but I guess it won't be too different.

Fit another diamond shaped plate on the exhaust manifold. I thinks is what he meant and is what you need to do.

Didnt think there was that much involved, thought it was just a unbolt and blank the exhaust side.

It's pretty straightforward - just just need to blank the EGR at both sides. You could leave the heat exchanger in place with the coolant feed&return and just remove the gas ducting so you have no plumbing to do. It's just that I chose to remove the lot to create some extra space.
