Re: Bad acceleration in low rpm

Hi there,

I would start at the air flow meter. These can give problems and lead the car to act like yours.
Unplug the air flow meter and take it for a drive, if this cures the issue you will simply need a new one.
Try to get an OEM as aftermarket cheap meters can just be as bad.

Hope this helps!!

Re: Boost gauge install hdi 90

Thank you very much for your reply! This helps a lot.
I’m considering adding an intercooler so this also helps the pipe layout for me.

Boost gauge install hdi 90

Hi guys,

Can someone clarify where to plumb a boost line into on the hdi90.
As this has no intercooler do I tap into the intake manifold or is there an easier option?
Would like to know what my turbo is doing...

Thanks in advance!

Re: Egr delete on hdi 90bhp

You are correct. Just block the end of the pipe - the EGR is vacuum controlled so without the vacuum pipe attached it cannot open... However, they have been known to jam slightly open ( due to deposits stuck in the valve ) so the blanking plate will eliminate this potential issue. Blanking plates a...

Re: Egr delete on hdi 90bhp

Yep, Just the same & no light as long as you leave the solenoid connected electrically. It's better to blank off using blanking plates, also clean out as much muck as you can from the inlet due to the egr :roll: Hey diesel, sorry to sound stupid. Do I simply take the vacuum pipe off the egr and blo...

Egr delete on hdi 90bhp

Hi guys, Sorry if this has been covered before, is the delete the same for the 90bhp as the 110bhp? A simple vacuum pipe block... Can someone point me in the right direction as to what to do? Do I need to get any codes/lights turned off on the dash if I do delete the egr? Many thanks for your help, ...
