buy the plate on ebay, it may need tech 2 to turn it off.

Sure some people on here use the 1.9 astra plate and it does bring on the light iirc.

Will my managment light come on? With a 100% Blank EML/Emissions will come on no harm it's just that the measurement of air has changed that's passing through the valve. Nobody has figured how to turn the light off yet so nothing to worry about.

Any other tips welcome. Thanks in advance

Buy 1.9 cdti plate. Straight fit but if you dont want light just drill 8mm hole in it like astra boys do. Light on come mot spells trouble so best with hole and keeping just as much out as fully blank plate. Depends how you want it to be. Fully blank with light at times or little hole in plate and happy days. Thats all iv done and works a treat.

light on at MOT time is an advisory, sailed though MOT with mine no problem

No all your doing is stopping the recirculation of hot exhaust gases back into the compression chamber,

the reasons for doing it are:

cools down intake temperature ([cold air + warm air = mild air] remove the warm air and well you know)
increases air intake pressure ([cold pressurised air + warm un-pressurised air = mild air with lower pressure] remove the warm air and well you've all done maths)
EGR valve can get clogged up with oil/soot and cause problems
Swirl flaps on inlet can stick open because of the above ^
problems above can cause running problems (shuddering/loss of power/limp mode)

The EGR only works fully on idle to cut CO2 emissions and is supposed to be an efficient way of doing this (personally i dont think so), the valve its self works ~8-10% when the car is moving.

cheers for clearing that up. :)
