Straight forward to blank but it will give management light as it has feedback to ecu.
3 options

1 clean out and leave if causing issue

2 blank and map out

3 fit partial blank so it reduces the crap that goes through.

Would I have to take the complete valve off to blank out ?. I have heard they are difficult to get to .
Thanks.

I partially blanked my x type with 2.0 tdci ford engine had the blank in for about 10k miles and didnít notice and major difference, however when having manifold off to change glow plugs I removed the blank. The engine now seems to run better there was a slight hesitation on gear change which is now gone. Also the puff of smoke on hard acceleration has also stopped. Suppose I will have to just clean the damn thing every so often now.

My 1.8 was the other way round.  Seriously dangerous hesitation on moving off.  Blanking removed that completely, with the only change being a noticeable increase in the warming up time.
