"EGR is considered a `metered intake leak' and was developed to reduce the combustion temperatures to below 2,500 degrees, the threshold where NOx is created. Not unlike putting a brick in your lavatory to lower the volume of water used, the EGR valve meters a readily available inert gas (actually exhaust gas which contains a lot of very inert Carbon Dioxide) into the combustion chamber to effectively reduce the volume. Smaller effective displacement means less fire, and less heat and thus lower temperatures, thereby controlling NOx emissions.

Obviously we don't want to `reduce' the volume of the combustion chambers (effectively reduced engine displacement) during hard acceleration, so EGR is turned off when you need full power (WOT (Wide Open throttle) conditions)"

Now look what I just found...

Guess what I'm about to do...

Re: Correct boost pressure(s) for 1.9JTD

Well I'm of the opinion that I have a gauge that reads exactly half what it should. The van goes like the clappers and will chirp the wheels in 2nd on a damp road and yet it does all that on about .7 bar.

I aint buying it...

I've now cleaned every flippin sensor, valve, MAF, MAP, EGR, been right round it for leaks with soapy water, checked it holds vacuum, the works...

And heres what I get

Re: Correct boost pressure(s) for 1.9JTD

Boost control solenoid?

Its a small block (or cylinder) with 3 small bore vacuum lines attached to it.

I believe they are susceptible to water damage/ingress, they certainly are on the punto/stilo, where owners tend to move it onto the side of the battery box to help 'shield' it more effectively.

Ah, down on the block, right hand side as you stand at the front?

I couldn't get the plug off it. maybe I'll have a look at that tomorrow.

I have to say, it goes like stink even if it's not producing the right boost

Thanks, I'll have a butchers tomorrow. I also need to grind the heat shield off the exhaust - the nuts have rusted to nothing and I can't get them off any other way :/

Well, I ground the heatshield off anyway - and then my ItalianSpeed box turned up in the post, so I got distracted.

All I can say is "Faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarkinel l!"

If anyone tries to tell you ItalianSpeed boxes don't work, don't listen to them.

And they're a really nice company to deal with as well. I bought mine second hand on flea bay and it came with no instructions, so I emailed them and an hour later got a nice reply in English (sort of ) and all the info you could want.

All I have to do now is learn not to make the clutch slip in third...
