I attempted this today, but a 22mm Welch plug is too small:


I think a 24mm one would work well, but I'll report back!

Also have this plate but finally decided to get rid off it and you can disable (not completely) EGR through DIS software. Job for 5mins and clean job.

Makes me happy :D

Egr Restrictor how to

Post by jason@bwchiptune » Mon Sep 25, 2017 8:43 pm

The best way to keep the egr closed
is to set it to closed all the time in the ecus software when doing a remap
If this is done the correct way the dpf will still regen on cars fitted with a dpf system
