Diesel Particulate Filter Removal (DPF Delete)
Are you having problems with your DPF (Diesel particulate filter)? Facing expensive repair costs? Sick of poor MPG when the DPF is regenerating? Want to remove the DPF from your vehicle? Then you have come to the right place, we can alter the software in the ECU (Engine Control Unit) so that the DPF can be removed from the vehicle without logging any error codes or attempting any future regenerations.
Most vehicles fitted with a DPF will need to have the filter replaced at some point as part of the service schedule if it hasn’t become overloaded in the meantime, this can be very expensive for instance BMW 3.0D about £1300! The DPF is not a legal requirement or is it needed for the MOT test so the most cost effective solution is to remove the DPF from the exhaust system and deactivate the DPF functions from the ECU.
Benefits of DPF Removal:
What is the DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter)?
Most diesel passenger cars, vans and commercial vehicles, built after 2006 have a DPF (diesel particulate filter) installed in the exhaust system. Some vehicles like Peugeot, Citreon & Fiat have had them fitted since 2001. This is a filter designed to reduce the soot particles created from engine conbustion from entering the atmosphere.
What It Does?
The diesel particle filter removes polluting chemicals that result from diesel combustion before these particles of polluting matter reach the tailpipe and enter the atmosphere. It works similar to a catalytic converter by trapping and re-heating pollution.
Eventually all DPF filters will clog up at some time bringing engine management light on and indicate about clogging. Most manufacturers will swear this will be a long time, but since the technology is so new we will only find out through time how long they last. They are not cheap to replace and this has a lot of diesel aficionados worried.
The Affect of Diesel Particle Filters or DPF on Fuel Mileage?
The diesel particle filter itself creates an obstruction in the exhaust system. Combine this with the diesel catalytic converter and you have created several pounds per square inch of blockage on your exhaust pipe.
Also to start DPF regeneration process an extra amount of fuel has to be injected to raise the temperature to the level required for regeneration.
Since adding the DPF to the exhaust system does result in a loss of fuel mileage, many wonder why the government made this technology a requirement when it is not even used in most parts of the world. Now that diesel sold in the U.K is all ultra low sulphur there is not as much pollutant matter given off by diesel engines.
What We Do To Disable The System & How This Helps You?
We can reprogram your vehicles engine management system to forget about the DPF so you will not have any warning lights on the dash, engine going in LIMP mode or any expensive problems in the future.
