GREAT NEWS

the reduced smoke is because the car is now running lean as it should

please post your uoa, the results should be better

That's an old paper and refers to only one type of EGR and engine. The reason the results are bad are that the oil used lacked enough detergents in comparison with the OCI.

Oddly enough you can get more wear from not cleaning the intake of general dirt than not cleaning the EGR!

Good to hear that! So it seems you were driving around with the EGR stuck open all the time. That will foul it up and prevent it from burning clean.

I would advise folks to be careful changing the MAP in some engines and it's best to get a dealer or good tuning company to do it. If you make a mistake with a file address it can easily cause a limp mode fault or even start up failure.
Some MAP fiddles can save fuel during warm up, but they relate to the injectors and may not be OK in insurance terms as the engine tends to stall if you lift off the gas during warm up. I've got such a MAP tune of my TDI, BUT I turned it off for the TUV inspection and do have it listed as an engine MOD.

Things are probably much less stringent here in NJ, all they do is scan for CEL and check to make sure you have a catalyst installed. Thats about it. I have been noticing a slightly quicker warm up, is this possible with less egr? Im assuming from the higher combustion temps from the lean mixture?
