I would presume you mean EGR valve. two in 12k is very excessive.
You can have the EGR system turned off via a remap. (Off and still does the self clean cycle - the chugga chugga noise when you turn the engine off)
Removing DPF in the exhaust is an MOT fail, however the DPF has a handy heat shield around it, so if you should decide to have the DPF removed, the MOT man can't actually see it because its hidden underneath the shield.
The ford fuel system IMHO is very very poor, they respond very well to a new fuel filter, but a serious pain in the backside to bleed the system up again.
