What Is an EGR Delete?
To begin with, we offer an advanced EGR service solution that can involve deleting the EGR valve’s software settings entirely. This will stop exhaust from being redirected back toward your car’s engine. Essentially, it means that your vehicle will function as though there is no EGR valve there since the software it uses will no longer be present. When carbon deposits build up, it is often good for the performance of the vehicle to opt for an EGR delete but diagnostics should be carried out beforehand to ensure this is the right way to proceed.

What Are the Benefits of an EGR Delete Service?
As mentioned, an EGR delete will only be beneficial under certain circumstances. Ask us if you think this sort of service will be useful to you and we’ll make an honest assessment. The basic idea of an EGR valve is to lower emissions, so this needs to be taken into account. However, a massing of carbon, especially on the intake manifold, can cause performance issues which deleting will solve. Leaving it could lead to the valve breaking down completely, something that would be expensive to fix.

It is not illegal to remove the EGR from your vehicle, however it is an offence under the Road vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations (Regulation 61a(3))1 to use a vehicle which has been modified in such a way that it no longer complies with the air pollutant emissions standards it was designed to meet and is now an instant fail on a MOT.
