    blanking plate for focus 53plate tdci (egr)

    hello all, aim struggling with power at very low revs and want to blank the egr valve off, can you buy any proper blanking plates ? its very strange Ive noticed that when it wont go if i take my foot off the gas for a second or two it does seem to then accelerate? Ive just fitted a reconditioned turbo and when its warm there seems to be a high pitched kind of squeal at first i thought it was the manifold gasket but its hard to track down it does seem to be coming from the turbo and doesn't do it when its clock cold only after 10 mins after start up? ive also de-cated it the funny thing is it absolutly flys after around 40mph, but then when you come to a complete stop ..no power? its not to bad if i first put loads of revs then set off , it used to red line in first and would wheel spin but since the oem turbo blew up it just wont go properly in first and second, but its intermittent

    any help on this its driving me mad

    thanks
    andy

    Hi mate - probably can't help much but with EGR issues there's usually a load of black smoke from the exhaust when accelerating & a noticable loss of power.

    Don't know of any off the shelf blanking pieces - people normally just use a piece of suitably shaped tin can.
