All sorts of opinions on this on the internet, some reckon if you blank off a current car, engine light stays on & need ecu sorting to turn it off. Some say exhaust temp is raised, shortening life of turbo. Emissions is not tested on diesels for mot only smoke. There is talk that soon mot tests will incluce diagnostic check to detect if anti polution devices have been blanked/removed....make of it what you will....

Well, firstly, any PAS tech with a reasonable amount of savvy would be able to see if the
EGR valve was removed so no need for diagnostics. Same goes for DPF (FAP) and CAT.
If my EGR valve needs replacing I'll remove it and use a blanking plate. If, in the
future, legislation states that my car must have one then that's the time when I shall fit it.
The great news is that my car has no DPF (OEM) so there's one potential problem I won't have to deal with.
