What is an EGR?

Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) involves the recirculation of exhaust gases back into the intake manifold system. This has the effect of increasing engine performance because it lowers the combustion temperature of the engine by allowing cooled air back into the intake. EGR deletes, therefore, reduce this capacity as well as remove soot buildup that hinders the engine’s performance.

Although some debate surrounds the effectiveness of an EGR Delete, it does make a significant difference in the overall performance of your vehicle. The removal of the component responsible for the recirculation of exhaust gases is often the best method of improving your engine’s efficiency.

The EGR valve is a component of the engine that controls the recirculation of exhaust gases, primarily nitrogen oxide (NOx), as per the regulations specified by EU emission law.  EGR removal or deletion, therefore, is the removal of the functioning capacity of this component in order to reduce running issues associated with it. Often, the passage of burnt exhaust gases through this valve creates a buildup of carbon deposits. These deposits can cause the valve to become stuck and depressurized. Essentially, this causes a massive reduction in fuel economy and engine power.

What is an EGR Delete?

The process of an EGR delete has a number of benefits. For example, the process results in an increase of fuel economy, restoration of engine power, restoration of MPG, the creation of cleaner emissions that accompany the removal of soot build-up, a reduction in the need for an EGR replacement and prevention of DPF failure, all whilst being completely MOT compliant.
