Right, now I've got a cf4 jtdm have I realised just what issues can arise. :wow:

So egr and swirl can cause major problems. So far I've seen that you can blank the egr and remove swirl flaps. Both require remap/ delete.

As far as swirls are concerned would it be a easy fix to disconnect the actuator arm and leave (as in wedge bar in some way) the swirls in the open position negating the need to delete the swirl from the management prog. And not remove them?

Are the swirl flaps still a problem if the EGR is mapped out and blanked off though?

That was going to be one of my questions. I was assuming that the damage is caused by the exhaust gasses and your reply suggests it is.

The issue for me is on a 75k car what's the best. Just blank off egr and all should be fine?

You'll want the coal mined out of the intake anyway.

Not if the manifold and/or flaps aren't already carboned up excessively.
The cars run sooo much better with active swirl flaps than without,as long as the assembly is clean
