    Hi I have a defender wolf and am considering removing/blanking the egr however there is a electronic control unit fitted so I'm guessing its not a strait mechanical exercise. Any pointers gratefully received.
    Thanks

    Removal of emissions equipment may cause issues at MOT time, I doubt that there is any real benefit in removing it.

    The plug is mostly irrelevant. We used to just make a small plate of metal to replace the gasket/spacer with and a little exhaust sealant gooped on to stop leaks. Looks unmolested on the outside (keeps the grownups happy), but stops the nightmare of them getting gunged up. Mil vehicles spend most of their lives idling, so the EGR is a very common fail point.

    I'll be doing this shortly and the harness to it is a separate part and can just be removed, or left there for looks.
    The actual electrical kit is in the black chequer plate box between the seats, which I am retaining as a mount for a Pelicase.
    The only part that I have not decided on is which blanking kit to use because the recommended supplier is out of stock, but I have a few months, so no problem yet.
    Do you have REMUS matting on your seatbox?
