It's easier to keep on top of cleaning the EGR on the Z19DTH. I had one in my old Vectra, and just used to take it off, and clean it every 6 months. You can also get a different gasket which reduces the amount of EG coming back into the inlet to the minimum amount the ECU needs before throwing the EML on.

Fair enough, didn't want to offend Matt but at the same time was trying to help you out. Matt is a great bloke and I will always choose here first but it did look like they're no longer in stock.
 
Fitted egr cheater and the blankingplate... Went for a good test drive. No hickups so far.

By the way, what do you guys have to say about Zafira 1.9 CDTI ENJOY model 2007 170K km on the clock(110 Kw)? Asked price 4300GBP. I need a comute and family car. Maybe wrong thread but anyway.
 
Driven more than 1000km since I fitted the egr cheater. Motor running like a dream. What a nifty little life saver!

I keep wondering though, does this mod affect the exhaust in anyway? Should I be concerned about passing the M.O.T exhaust test?

Made my first cheater! Thank you guys for blueprints.
One last question, I used 1W resistors for the circuit, won't it cause any problems?
 
this is my latest version of the egr cheater, I see little point in retaining the plug on the engine loom, so now the egr cheater is designed to fit inside the loom tray :)

the latest version

first step is to open the loom tray, use a small screwdriver to release the clips

then cut only the four wires required and connect them to the egr cheater, the last wire can then be cut and taped to the loom.
the spare brown wire is not required anymore :)

then slide the egr cheater into the loom tray and reattach the lid, be careful not to trap any wires etc

finally remove the redundant egr valve and fit the vauxhall blanking plate

Have you developed one for the z22yh engine?
