Hi I have grabbed a PUG 306 turbo to run SVO
i am thinking i should remove the catalytic converter and blank the EGR.
Any input or experience would be appreciated.
Peace and blessings howie

It is nice if you can blank the egr. The cat is more blantant removal of emissions equipment. My Jeep Liberty is 70k miles on svo I turned off the egr but I still have the cat.

If you are familiar with cat's you'll know there is no need to remove them.
Drop the tailpipe section off and smack a bit of metal rod or pipe into the cat and break up the ceramic honeycomb. start the engine to blow out the fragments and when you are done re-attach the tailpipe.
The cat will still be there and look exactly as it should only it won't be doing anything except acting a bit like a straight through muffler.
There's no need to smash the core either they work fine on biodiesel, unless you want the characteristic biodiesel smell when you drive by. DPF filters are a totally different story.
Blanking the EGR valve when running on biodiesel will give even more permanence, more power less smoke a win win situation. 5-7 mpg improvement, no change in driving style.
