    to-date .. they've been no reports on this forum [ that i can recall ] of mot issues due to fitting an egr-delete unit
    however if your worried .. keep a clean egr device handy to refit for mot.
    it's only 4 bolts 'n a vac hose .. and the exhaust feed clip ..

    see also ..

    certainly less particle emissions without the egr
    [ so far as to nullify the emissions test in some cases as the machine don't register 'owt ]
    as for the n.o.x. .. there's no test in the mot ..
    and keeping a lightfoot on the go pedal would probably help reduce n.o.x. emissions
    [ the recirculated exhaust gas via the egr is supposed to cool the combustion
    [ therefore reducing n.o.x. production

    Many thanks for the info..
    I will get on with my service items and during so will take off the EGR If only to clean, but Is all down to what i find.
    I only work now at snail speed on car and vespa scooter bits, and as usual left it all in the better weather till the last minute..I can play the "old age card" now Im old aged..lol

    I find the Shell V power diesel makes mine run better. As for the EGR delete, people say it's a possible MOT failure, but I don't think I've heard anyone who's done a delete report a failure as a result of it.

    It will fail if they spot it's been blocked as they would have to record it as blocked/tampered with. Some have been spotted but not on a FL yet. Most cars have an engine cover in the way.

    Thanks all.
    Must be honest I dont go out much lately under our lock down rules
    plus my seemingly never ending Hospital visits, but, to aid freezing my brass monkeys off, i have started making and fitting "Roll up sides" on my car port, made from stout wooden lengths fitted to very heavy duty black plastic sheeting securely fitted to the top side beams of car port, used nice shiny stainless pulleys and new blue strong nylon rope going from the top beam round the bottom beam, then just pull the two lengths of rope and it rolls up the sides, to be secured by a simple wooden cleat, to let it unroll is the reverse.
    But why ?
    well planning gets a bit twitchy where I live so to conform with rules and regs of a car port, it has to have at least 2 open sides, of which they are. (until i unroll the plastic sides during the day) when (big when then) Im outside working on freelander...
    Next I plan a roll up entrance "door" in clear reinforced heavy duty plastic to the same idea..
    Sadly I dont like laying or working on cars out in the cold any more, i left that to younger heros of one I used to be..
    At worst I will play my old age card being "only" 72 years old..lol
    Ok, thanks all, keep safe, keep happy, keep LR happy also..

    They wouldn't spot it on my FL2, as it's under a cover, and it's only a thin plate anyway.

    They wouldn't spot it on my FL1 either, as I just cleaned out the EGR and isolated the vac feed.
