The last thing I would of suspected was the EGR plate. I reversed the mod and put the old gasket back on yesterday. The car runs MUCH better. No stalling at all. The car idles at a solid 900rpm whereby it used to struggle at 600rpm. Overall drivability is improved. Throttle response is improved and no more bucking/surging at low rpm while driving in a parking lot.

I guess I had a leak back there. I installed it with the up arrow up. We don't have to install it on a particular side do we?

I need to re-shape it a polish both of the sides with the dremel as it is pretty rough. If the car runs poorly again I will remove it and leave it off.

Anyone have issues with Mohd's plate not fitting correctly?

I made my own one too. You should have used the plate w/ the gasket. That might have been causing your problem.

If you decide to put the plate back in, just notch out the 2 bolts holes so it will slide in and out rather than having to take off the EGR, you can just loosen it and slide it in. :D

Thanks for the responses.

Ryan,

You left the original gasket in place? The directions on mkiv.com said to use it in place of the original. I took it as to remove the original one.

Did you notice if the car ran differently at all? My car sure runs better without it. I heard someone say to use some of the permatex stuff but that seem like it would get messy. Notching the holes is a good idea.

Another question.

If I use the stock gasket, which side of the plate do I put it on?

thanks
