    Hi,
    I am thinking about an egr blanking plate but would I need a remap after I do this?
    Leon mk2 1P BKC engine?
    Thanks

    Yes, and if you rip the EGR system out you'll fail the MOT.

    I just disconnected the pipe that connects to the EGR, does the same as a plate. Dash lights on but the ECU doesn’t reduce performance.

    I’m planning a remap at a future date and will ask that they remove the EGR check from the ECU.

    In short, do you need a remap. No, not if you are prepared to take an MOT into consideration (if mines not mapped out I can simply reconnect the hose and reset the OBD2)
