Hello everyone, I am sorry if this question has been answered many times. I looked in the technical section but the only guide there talks about the Allard delete kit. I understand an Allard kit would fail the MOT now as it's obvious that the egr valve has been deleted. I was wondering whether I can simply insert a blanking plate between the egr pipe and the egr valve itself and not touch anything else. This is how it's done on T4 transporter which I did on mine as well, without any adverse effects but not sure about the PD engines. T4 does not have an egr cooler but I don't know whether that makes a difference. Thanks for your advice.

i did that to mine, easiest way plus you keep the ASV (anti shudder valve) to prevent a runaway engine. just remember you need to block the egr feed-pipe off on both sides so it doesn't crack.

Hi northpole, thank you. How easy to get to the other end of the EGR pipe on the Golf? The reason I am asking is that I was unable to do the bolts on the exhaust manifold end of the EGR pipe in my T4 and ending up only blocking the EGR end.

Hi guys,
Interesting thread and thanks for posting.
Running a 150hp ARL and intend to do the same,also note a thread by another ARL owner claiming an improvment in mpg which is always welcome.
Have bought the blanking plates,but a question please: do i need to disconnect and blank off the vac feed pipe to the EGR or can i leave as is?
Many thanks.

Excellent! many thanks for the reply.

Have bought two blanking plates,just need to find a spare hour or two to delve into it.

Hope to gain a bit of mpg, will report back.Can currently attain mid 50’s if i really tickle the pedal but its usually in the 40’s.
