    If the light is on specifically with the EGR code then you can ignore it - the ECU will register a fault from the EGR if it gives a wrong signal/error even if not connected to the engine, so don't worry.

    Personally I don't go for the permanent blanking of the EGR as it does serve a purpose, but so far we've had no reports I've seen of it causing long term problems.
