I doubt this, NOx is much higher without erg. I know the 84 / 85 617 cars failed emissions testing when the EGR is broken.

I should hook up a test light to the EGR output on my computer... See when it's active.

If not needing EGR is a metric for how good an engine is that means VW trumps MB, VWs didn't get EGR here until 1995

Many modern passenger cars have 2 EGR systems so they can run even mor EGR, and while on boost :crazy:
