is it worth considering disabling the EGR?, how easy is this to do, on my Toyota surf you need to by or make a blank off plate & remove a load of piping from the back of the engine.
The cleaning process is very labour intensive so if you choose to get it done by your mechanic, expect to add another $500-1000. The EGR valve block off is actually illegal here (not sure in NZ) but that is up to you on that. That is why I suggested a good quality oil catch can as it removes the majority of the oil vapour before it goes through the intake system.
