Pat williams, GSF,

same as the injector return pipe
Just a couple of quid for a length

Will probably be giving you poor braking I guess feeling like nothing happening.

Don't bother, remove it and any similar line that goes to the pump or wastegate actuator. Then blank it off down at the vac pump/servo connection.

Then remove the EGR and blank that as well.

Well, the new pipes on now.
Reg, as you might have guessed I know f**K all about engines but what are the benefits of doing what you suggested mate?
Cheers! :wink:

It's the EGR actuator, best removed altogether. Fills the inlet manifold with carbon build up.

Probably teamed up with a NOX reduction device on the front of the pump, this reduces advance at high revs, killing power.
