    Im sure there would be competent Mechanics in hyderabad to do this job, but the first Punto to get it done should be ready to become a scapegoat for the mechanic to understand what to open up and how to open up properly. I'll look for someone in the next few weeks and give it a try maybe.

    Guys even RDC fiat in chennai has refused to do the job for my MJD. They say it is not necessary to clean the turbo and egr. Is there any good reliable mechanics in chennai to do the job?

    Dear All,

    Just to give an update on the positive improvements - other than the reduced harshness of the engine, the mileage has improved. Previously, if I cruised at 100 kph, the car would return a mileage of 18-19.5 kmpl (depending on how ferociously you reach 100). Under similar conditions, the mileage has improved to 21-22.5 kmpl. I was surprised when these figures showed up on the screen, as they were very high. I hope it stays this way..:)

    No negatives so far. I shall report, if any.

    Guys got my egr cleaned at RDC fiat last week. They charged me 650 plus 25 for some hose clip.

    Now car loves to rev more and i can feel the new grunt in the car.

    I guess it is only EGR and not intercooler also? Gains are more of all these are cleaned in one go. :)

    It was along with intercooler. Got the confirmation form Tensing that they had done both. But i was suprised for the charge but they added another 650 for scanning.
  10. What about MAP/MAF and Intake manifold?
