I did not know that it was illegal, I guess most modes are.

I thought that turning it down ( still works ) was better than pulling the
vacuum hose & plugging it up with a golf tee.
And that modifying was some race pipe or something that
deleted, or replaced with a none working EGR.

I'm just tring to avoid having to clean my EGR and Intake manifold every 40 thousand miles. This web site "Highly Recomends it for all TDI Owners" it's in the maintenance section of the site. So Is it illegal?? does any one know for shure??

Adjust your EGR, you won't be sorry you did. In fact if you don't turn it down, you probably will be sorry! It was my understanding that it is legal to turn it down to the level we do and it is still within the allowed specs. I think it does have something to do with the overall allowed polution from an automaker, and if all the TDI's were adjusted, then VW wouldn't be in compliance.

I believe Edward is correct. Besides, we're not modifying emissions devices, we're just clicking on a laptop, right?

I just found out today from a highly placed US government source of mine there will be an No E-Code Enforcement Task Force in Madison same time as us Fest antendees. No word on what possible fines/penalties/jail terms may be for not having NA-codes installed on your VW.

Also there will be a guerilla-style Special DRL Compliance Enforcement Team doing surprise checkpoints/inspections for operable DRL lights also in Madison same weekend. Again no idea on the ramifications for being caught with non-functioning DRL's at this time.

Yes, Big Brother is watching and about to pounce - uh, inspect.....

I can undo the 5 light mod in 35 secconds. I'll just set the cruse, have dad steer, and climb into the trunk and undo the jumpers. No tickets for me
And rear for lights are legal

Guys, I need my EGR recalibrated per the recommendation in FAQ's as well. In fact, it's my primary reason for attending the Fest. Can I set up a firm time to hook up with someone to get this done. I had my intake gunk up at 60K miles. I'm currently at 90K (still going strong), but I don't want to ever go through having the intake cleaned again.

Thanks

It will be no problem doing an EGR recalibration at the Fest. Stop by Topel's anytime Saturday during the Tech sessions or during the open shop time and you'll get taken care of.
