I have lots of plans, but now a lack of spare cash, and even less free time is holding up the modifying game Laughing

Really Shocked

I've had 3 MOT's done now, and never had that crop up Whistle

I know the MOT requirements have changed recently, and are continuing to evolve to 'harmonise' with the EU (no Censored comment ) but I still didn't think a MOT tester was allowed to 'remove' any factory fitted covers etc, and as the driver you just say "don't know how it comes off mate" Whistle

Re: My Disco 3 revival thread!

Somewhere up in this thread you mentioned the EGR valves were removed altogether and blanked at the exhaust manifold. Can this be done on my 2007 ?

That's a great detailed thread Coo, thanks for the reply but I didn't see anywhere what I asked originally which was do the EGR valves have to actually be on the car at all and can I then blank the exhaust side and related pipework with the EGR's not on the car?

I ask this as I am rebuilding my engine and was hoping I didn't have to actually put them back on the car at all? Thumbs Up
