Remap Saturday - egr removal

My local mapper has managed to squeeze me in o Saturday and said he will close the Egr valve for me , ideally I would like to blank of off but don't have time for that before sat so will it effect the map until I get the plates ?

No will run fine until you get it blanked, took me two weeks after my map/delete to fit the plates and made no difference at all.

If you turn the EGR off in the ECU it will stay closed... There is really no need to blank it off. Except if the valve itself is damaged, then use the blanking plate. But you can fit that after the remap.

ive managed to get the EGR blanking plates , it doesnt come with the gaskets though , can i get away with using the old ones ?

what worries me is that there should be a gasket on either side of the face but i was thinking i could use the old one on the side that is pressurised ?

Have you got the metal blanking plates?
If so you probably won't get a gasket on as well as they are thicker than standard ones, I just ran a smear of instant gasket around the edge and clamped them on, no prob's.

It's not the bolts that will stop you it's the pipe coming into the bottom of the EGR, it wont move much so you'll probably only get the plates in.
Just saw your other thread and you blank the two inlets into the Egr, there are only 2 as seen here, once you take it off it is self explanatory.
