Re: Fiat Siena 1.7TD (2006) oil catch can

i know this may be off topic but has any one tried EGR delete on thy diesel palios 1.9D?

i bought a 2003 fiat palio 1.9D diesel 2 weeks back and have plans to do an EGR delete on her , will use a metal plate and block the exhaust port ,

i have read suggestions that a remapp is ideal but here in INDIA its way far from reality ,

i am not sure if any one has done this on fiats diesels ?
emissions are not an issue here , its damm easy to get by ,
my consern is to save my engine from the soot its reculating and also
next step will be to delete cat con ,

my car is over 14 years old and i cannot plonk a new cat con its too damm pricy here ,

can any one throw some light on the possible cons ,
i think the palio 1.9 D is same as the DOBLO that yall may have ,
i need to know if there is any one who has tried an EGR delete ?
and if yes then have seen any difference in vehicles performance ? etc .

thoughts anyone ?

I live in SA and have a spare cat for this 1.7. Should fit the 1.9 surely. Send a pic and I'll compare. Sorry edited your post because I replied "on it"

Re: Fiat Siena 1.7TD (2006) oil catch can

I disconnected the egr connection to the valve not sure feels little peppier between 2500 - 3500 could be placebo, next step cat con delete. Prolly will feel the difference once cat is out,I did not go a blanking plate at the exhaust port I don't think I will need one,since the egr cable is disconnected the valve remains dead, Click image for larger version

EGR is disabled now, feels little peppier but now another problem radiator coolant pipe leaking so will replace it
