    EGR removal

    2011 Polo 1.2 TDI, CFWA

    I've read that removing the EGR valve is not an MOT failure.

    Is the removal of the EGR on a CFWA engine feasible?

    I had a word with the auto sparky we use. They don't do remap work.

    They said if needed, they'd fit a new VW EGR or a Pierburg brand unit which the sparky said, actually supply VW.

    The Pierburg brand unit seems to be around the 200 ball park if I buy online and fit it myself.

    VW, I recall quoted around 300+ part X so presumably they take used ones in and clean them out.

    Removing any legally mandated emissions device is illegal and an MOT failure plus it is an environmental crime, not only that it is a https://www.volkswagenforum.co.uk/sh...ad.php?t=11638

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
