You could block the EGR pipe. This was faulty on my old bus and it produced great puffs of black smoke (wasnt closing properly = unburnt fuel pushed through exhaust) every time I accelerated.

A blanking plate stopped the gases recirculating when they shouldn't and no more smoke, emissions at almost 0 and better mpg.

Ah sorry, it was on the deisel Lucida...

But I did the same on my petrol Vectra. Never affected the MOT - in fact it never failed on emissions the 3 years I had it.

Try eBay for the plates. Think the Vectra on cost 15 quid, Lucida one was free but I burnt out 4 drill bits on the stailess.
