    Thanks for the information people blanked mine off tonight but yet to drive and check any change (td5)
    just waiting for a kit to turn up to remove the valve completely.
    Bloody EGR what a horrible idea!
    Start of my journey into the fascinating world of Td5 fettling after a lifetime of V8's n tdi's :)

    In my mind there is no doubt, if you install an EGR replacement kit it will include the blanking plate but also you will be able to remove the EGR valve with it's blocking the inlet airflow problem.

    Remove the EGR, clean the MAP sensor and the ECU plugs with clutch and brake cleaner - and you're good to go.

    On the TD5 I've never found cleaning the intercooler neccesary; re the inlet manifold, check it after the MAP sensor, clean if necc.
