VCDS Lite... Can it code out EGR?

Post by BIG F@ TW@ » Fri May 19, 2017 7:35 pm

I intend on getting a proper cable and VCDS Lite. Will this version allow me to code out the EGR as I have a Darkside Delete kit to fit.

You might want to look at MPPS, I know when you custom map with MPPS it is a flag on the EGR

You can reduce EGR function to a low setting with vcds. But unfortunately you can't stop the engine light coming on if you delete with darkside kit. At least not on anything 2003 onwards I believe.

A remap will take it out or there's some people who just disable EGR with MPPS I think. Not tried it as yet but would be interested how you do it.

I'm not ready for a remap as such but have been considering EGR removal for a long time, just have not got around to it.

I should have said that I also have my remapped ECU taken out of my old Pashat to go in.

About a year or so ago, I was looking at buying a seat Leon, so kept any extras on hold. But I found it difficult to part with my Passat. Biggest two things were the Leon back seats had no leg room and insurance was higher. Adding a ecu remap to the insurance sent it wild. Even through specialist companies.

The cheapest quotes were with companies I was not overly keen on so I left it at that.

Insurance has gone up again this year but I have since noticed, adding a ecu modification as well as suspension changes brings it down considerably.

Possibly try a black smoke remap this year with EGR taken out. Something clutch friendly though.

On the upside, I got 64mpg on the display the other day. Must be the slightly warmer weather.

I use Greenlight Insurance as they only insure modded cars. Very good price for lowered Pashat and can add mods as I go, like remap at no extra coat up to about 175bhp.

Coding out EGR is a 2min job with EDCsuite, pick EGR section and disable the values, you can do this without remapping but you will need mpps to flash it and get the map and reupload.

Skoda Superb 130 TDI AWX Saloon, another sneaky remap 160-170/270-280, EGR delete, lots of goodies and an Umbrella! (Sold....What's next?)
