Why remove the EGR valve?
The EGR valve is mandatory pollution control equipment for all diesel-powered vehicles. However, it is important to note that some petrol vehicle models are also equipped with this part. Its role is to direct exhaust gases back into the circuit for re-burning. As a result, the action of the EGR valve has an impact on the nitrogen oxides (NOx) emitted by the engine, helping to reduce them considerably.
Because of the way it operates, the EGR valve quickly becomes clogged with carbon deposits. Calamine deposits build up over the miles, clogging your EGR valve. The heavy presence of residues can cause a number of malfunctions, such as increased vehicle pollution, valve blockage, intake damage and loss of power.
Deleting your EGR valve with a deletion kit is a simple way of restoring proper operation. It also offers other benefits, such as improved engine performance, improved combustion and lower fuel consumption.
