egr blank
#1
I've got a boost leak from the inlet manifold,  so whilst I sort this I thought I might as well blank the egr,  so my question is will this show a fault light on the dash ?, my car is a Y reg running a stage 1 pro steve map,

So was it showing on the dash, as I really don't want to link my computer up to the ecu, my pc has a mind of it's own,
as for the map it was brilliant when I first got it, but getting bored now n would like more power lol

It's a silent code, so no engine management light. You won't brick your ecu by unplugging stuff, unless it's the injectors while it's running.

It's either going to be in the pipe going from airbox to turbo or turbo to inlet manifold. Access is a beotch, which is my i gave up after fitting new inlet gasket and egr blank lol

It won't be the inlet pipe as that's not pressurised. Wink

How do you know the leak is from the manifold, have you tested it with soapy water?

What if it is sucking air into the inlet pipe and causing the noise where its sucking it in?

Cheers for the replies, it could be the inlet elbow, I suppose time will tell as at the moment it's still looking clean, where as before it was covered in oil, the thing is the car is still pulling well, I'll have another look tomorrow
