    Have you checked all clips are done up correctly?
    fixed in correctly?
    all plugs have been plugged in correctly?

    SImple points but could stop it from running

    This is a popular mod with a lot of vectra owners (I used to be one) but I never saw the sense in blanking it off tbh.

    You can get an egr cheater for the 2.2 and then blank it off so the ecu still thinks that it is connected
