The exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve is a very common failing part and the most common type of failure is the mechanical flap getting seized due to becoming blocked up with soot, carbon and also oil from leaky turbochargers. When the EGR valve becomes blocked or stuck in one position, it can throw off the air/fuel ratio of the engine which in turn will result in poor performance and cause the engine light to illuminate.
Replacing the EGR valve is not cheap simply fitting a blanking plate will not work because it will cause the engine light to come on and the vehicle will eventually go into LIMP mode where the power is restricted. Our EGR delete will completely disable the function and the need of the EGR valve from the ECU so for the life of the vehicle, you never again have to worry about such an expensive repair. – No warning lights and no limp mode.
You can expect the following benefits from a simple EGR delete:
- Increased power
- Sharper throttle response
- Better fuel economy
- Increased life expectancy of engine
- Increased life expectancy of turbo
- Completely reversible solution
- Lifetime software warranty
Note: The EGR delete is offered as an off-road service.
