Its there to improve emissions , allegedly , a couple of years ago mine failed an mot on the emission test ( too much toxic crap out the exhaust ) took the car to a mechanic i know , he looked at it and said it will be the egr valve so he took the vac pipe off it and stook a ball bearing in the end and put the pipe back on , told me to take it for a blast then take it back to garage to get it tested again, it passed , i have had two more mot`s since then with no problem.
Currently in sblake1's garage:
