EGR removal 156 2.4jtd 10v

After EGR blanking does the ecu on this model need appropriate mapping? Can you blank at both ends and leave the egr plug conncted or is there a work around as I understand the early 10v 136bhp motors won't throw a EML but will show a fault when scanned. Also I'm sure I've read that you can just blank the end at the turbo and this will suffice.

Hello AlphPhil,
You dont need to switch it off, but it is possible. If you just blank it near the manifold, easy work. MIL wont be active, but you will have an error code, wont make any other problem. Drink a beer, and then recycle the can! ;-)

Beer tin will probably burn through after a while, I've seen a couple of home-made blanks on breakers that have come in that look just like gaskets with no middle left. I cut a plate out of 1.5mm steel and blanked it at the exhaust manifold.

Are there any egr manifold blanks available to buy or even the egr manifold gasket so I could make one from that template on some plate?

I have blanks that fit the inlet manifold end for 2.4 10v CF3 (140/150) but I don't know if they fit the CF2 (136). Alfa original part numbers for the gaskets are different.

i used it with the inlet manifold, so i hope, i wont burn;-) but of course another material, which is not as thin as the beer can, would be better for it.
