Egr blanking kit

Hi team.
Someone posted about the love/hate we have with our RR sports. After owning mine for less than a year I now understand!!!!
Deep pockets was the term used lol. I’ve now spent £2500 already 😩
So know the EML came on and yes it wasn’t a split hose but the egr valves, it just had to be!
My indie guy suggests getting them blanked off as a less expensive option although I will need to get the diagnostic guy on it to clear the light. Can anyone suggest a certain type of kits or are they pretty run of the mill?
Thank you

EU3 (up to 2005/6?) can just be blanked, but EU4 engines will need a software patch to turn out the EML light on your dash, which I think is an MOT failure if illuminated.
It is now an MOT failure to tamper with emission equipment, your EGR valves, but what most people do is fit the shims blocking the EGR valves, and then refit the original pipes so that it looks like it is all original.
You could replace your EGR valves, probably several hundred quid, or buy the blanking kit for less that £50 and an hours labour at your indi. You can do them yourself if your handy with spanners, there will be a guide her or if not, certainly the Disco3 forum.
If you do delete, best keep quiet about it though.
It might help others to advise you if you fill in your vehicle profile so we know what MY you have Thumbs Up

Well thank you guys for the advice,it seems disco mikey is all knowing lol.
I will update my profile so it becomes easier to answer my posts because I do suspect there will be more!!!
So all in all it seems a bad idea to blank off the v8 then?

Is it only 2.7's that can be blanked then, not TDV8's or SDV6's ?
