This is a part of Remapping & Tuning that is very frowned upon in the motor industry, however it is a service we offer .
The first thing to make clear is that this service is offered on an “off road use only ” basis, and by removing the internals of a DPF your vehicle is no longer legally allowed to be used on UK roads.
Why would anyone remove a DPF from a vehicle?
There is 2 main reasons for DPF removal, the first being for vehicle owners that wish to have a higher power output than a stage 1 tune, now this is another topic where different companies advise different things, if you wish to run anything higher than a stage 1 remap on your diesel, we will NOT carry out a stage 2 upgrade without the DPF removed, the increased output from your engine will naturally cause more carbon and emissions therefor more soot will pass through the DPF , increasing this load will ask the DPF to perform at a higher level than its designed to do and can result in a blocked DPF so to prevent this we offer 2 solutions.
Option 1 : DPF Gutting
This is where the DPF is removed from the vehicle, a small access hole is made and we can break down the contents and remove them leaving an empty chamber, this is then welded closed and the system is fitted back to the vehicle. We would need to meet you at a local garage which can offer this service.
Pros & Cons
Pros – Cheaper than fitting DPF delete pipe and to the untrained eye its not noticeable.
Cons – You can NOT refit the internals at any point and the replacement DPF can be in excess of £1000
Option 2: DPF dowpipe
You can source a downpipe for your vehicle which totally removes the DPF and allows the exhaust gases to flow lot more , you will get a much nicer sound doing it this way.
Pros & Cons
Pros – Increased gas flow, better exhaust sound, and allows you to retain the original DPF for refitting
Cons – Additional cost for the Pipe usually found online for £200-600 vehicle dependent.
With a DPF delete, we will remap your vehicle to remove the DPF regeration modes and remove the readings the sensors take. But more importantly increase the performance of the vehicle.
