    98 Mk4 will be the X16SZR, my favourite engine of all time

    It won't be easy on that engine as you need to pull half the injection system off.

    You'll need to remove the intake plenum (flat plastic yoke on top of the engine), all associated pipes. Then you should see the EGR on the back of the engine. It looks like the end of a deodorant can with a wire coming off it. Two torx bolts removes this. Take off the gasket and cut a blank out of some thin steel (Fosters can is the best), then bolt it all back together.

    it looks like this...



    But as ZS has said it's a right bitch to get at, and begs the question is it worth the trouble? Especially it blanking it off causes problems
