Sorry for bringing this up again but I got lost in the other threads:* lets call it newbie lack of knowledgeI:

Just fitted the EGR blanking plate on a 2006 2.5TDI and the warning light is on and i've got three questions

1. Should I drill a hole in the plate to fool the sensor? does this really work?
2. how much does it cost to get it remapped to fool the sensor?
3. Are there any other easy / cheap solutions?

1, No

2, You are looking at £275 if we was to do it or any Pendle agents

3, Yes remove it and enjoy the vehicle as VW intended and invested huge amounts of money in developing instead of fitting a £6 blanking plate Joe Blogs developed

When we tune vehicles I alter how the EGR functions giving all the benefits of having it blanked but also still having the reduced Nox levels and reduced cylinder temps in the mid rpm range.

Only reason I would ever get rid of a EGR would be down to having a faulty valve and the customer not having the funds to replace the valve, then we can switch the complete EGR function of within the software which would = never seeing a fault code for EGR
