DPF Removal

What is a D.P.F?

D.P.F. (Diesel Particulate Filter) is a filter fiitted to the exhaust system that is very similar to a catalytic converter in looks. It is designed to remove diesel particulate matter or soot, and the objective is to produce cleaner exhaust gases. However, as many people will agree, they often cause a lot more trouble than they actually do good.

It is also worth mentioning that, it is not currently a legal requirement that a diesel vehicle be fitted with a D.P.F. nor is one needed to pass the yearly M.O.T.

What exactly is involved in DPF removal?

In most cases DPF removal is possible by removing the D.P.F. housing from the exhaust system and replace it with a straight through pipe to re-complete the exhaust system. In other cases the housing will be removed, the filter parts inside the housing taken out and the housing then re-fitted to the vehicle. To complete the procedure, specialist computer equipment is plugged into the vehicle’s E.C.U. for some final adjustments.

All immobiliser and chassis information is safely retained with all our procedures.

What are the benefits of DPF removal?

There are many benefits of DPF removal from your vehicle, including more horse power, quicker throttle response and lower fuel consumption. It also creates peace of mind having eliminated the high cost of replacing the unit when its life has expired, not to mention the problems and other repair costs keeping a D.P.F. on a vehicle can bring.

How long does it take?

This can take anything from two to six hours, depending on the make and model of the vehicle, and would need the vehicle to be at our premises for this procedure.
