Local remapping and EGR delete recommendations

Recommended Posts

Best thing to do is have a look at the EGR thread on a forum relating to your car. There will be lots of information and advice on your particular model.

 

For example, on my 2L diesel I didn't even need a blanking plate. I just had to unplug an electrical connector and block a vacuum pipe with a golf tee. (Google "egr golf tee" )

The only equipment they need is their diagnostic computer attached to the car's onboard computer. That's the way they do it over here these days, no more tailpipe emissions testing.

 

They don't want to and/or can't afford to refit all MOT garages with a new computer.

 

It's also doubtful they are competent enough to even select the right computer to use should they wish to change.

That entirely depends on the car. Try that on a 10 year old car, 20 year old....

Good post. That's probably why our two early LR Td5's passed their MOT minus the EGR.

In Ontario, 20 plus-year-old cars are exempt from the emissions test, but 10-year-olds will certainly have onboard computers, they have been around longer than people may think. Of course, there are different rules from country to country, example in Canada we do not have to have annual MOT testing. One legally only has to get a safety check upon the sale of the car. In other words, you can keep the same car for 20 odd years and never have to be tested, except for your own peace of mind. In Ontario we have to be emission tested every 2 years on cars over 3 years old.

They will, but they won't monitor the emissions in any detailed way, if at all.

 

All I can get with my diagnostic equipment is how much the DPF filter is blocked and simple measurements of air, voltage and current at the upstream and downstream O2 sensors.

It doesn't really sound like Canada or the state of Ontario are a shining example of how to perform an MOT :hihi: :hihi: :hihi:

I'm looking for a remap and EGR delete on a Peugeot 207 1.6 HDI. Does anyone know anywhere local that is really good?

 

I've heard that the HDI is slightly different to other turbo diesel units so needs someone in the know to do a good job of it.

 

Thanks

 

Doesn't that result in higher exhaust emissions?

A bad remap could result in more unburnt fuel.

Which is why i am asking for recommendations. I have found somewhere that specialises in HDI's but it's no where near local.

 

Right now i am thinking that fitting a blanking plate is the best bet and get the stage 1 remap done.

I had a check engine light on for 7 years and passed the tailpipe emissions test 3 times. They changed the rules to computer diagnostics and I failed LOL. I believe it was a 02 sensor and an air intake valve or something like that. The cost was high so I scrapped the car, well it was 11 years old with 375 km on it and the tranny was knocking a bit etc. etc.

What's the benefit of doing it?
