    this is what I used http://www.astraownersclub.com/vb/sh...d.php?t=241888

    I had massive hesitation to the point I thought my turbo was on it's way out with severe lag before it kicked in. Turned out to be a huge amount of thick gunk from the egr back to the manifold through the pipe, well worth removing and de-gunking, I took mine off, removed the 3 screws holding the valve on, took out the o-ring and soaked mine for a couple of hours in diesel, scraped and cleaned, re-assembled and all is well again I also removed the pipe to the manifold and cleaned it at the same time as it wasn't pretty, now I've seen the mess this gets into it's going to be a yearly job...........
