Default To blank the egr valve or not?

I have tried to find an older answer to this question but can't.
How do I find out (as a non expert) if my van has a dpf? I looked at some sites as if I was buying an exhaust and it gave 2 options. One with the dpf catalyst combined, and one without a dpf. Some reviews saying blanking egr valve gave a better response and fuel economy. Some say blanking causes faster dpf clogging, even if you can escape the warning lights.
I called my local Peugeot dealer and he said it either will, or it won't have a dpf! Great help. Just that I will get a warning light if the eloy needs topping up.
It is a 2010 1.6 hdi 90.
I don't really want to go get it remapped fully as I am not sure how long I am keeping it for.

Enter your VIN here and it should tell you whether or not you have a particulate filter DPF

Awesome mate. Thankyou very much. I tried loads of sites to put in my VIN before I posted but couldn't find one that gave as much info as yours.
It quotes "without particle filter" which is what I was hoping for.
I guess I will blank the egr off and see what happens then.
Thanks again.

Why blank it off?. I doubt you'll notice any gains in performance or economy. It was put there for a reason, to inhibit formation of NO2, a toxic polluting gas.

I can't help but feel I have already answered your question in my original post. I have seen lots of reviews stating better performance, better fuel economy without affecting emissions. You are saying the opposite but I have already done it now.
I have decided to run it for a couple of tanks of fuel myself to make my own opinion. If i don't find any significant benefit, i will remove it again. I haven't noticed any difference in driving so far, but then I am a very steady driver anyway. I got 41.7mpg out of my last tank of fuel. I guess I will have to wait 650 miles to see what I get out of this one.
