#373305 1.6 Tdci -2007 - Dpf Removed And Remapped!

Posted by Lenny on 10 June 2014 - 01:14 PM

Can ya imagine Jeremy kyle show dpf style, :lol:

Husband buys wife a car from ebay auction
Cars in the wife's name,
While wife is at work,
Husband takes car for egr blanking and dpf internal removal but tells wife he's gone to get it valeted

Across the following weeks Wife notices increased mpg, less turbo lag and increased engine response which helps feed husbands gambling addiction due to spending less on fuel and blown turbos,

Has he gotten the dpf removed? Or has the previous owner whom sold it on ebay?
Lets take a lye detector test to find out shall we... Because the MOT Crew cant tell the difference when testing the car :lol:


#373304 1.6 Tdci -2007 - Dpf Removed And Remapped!

Posted by Lenny on 10 June 2014 - 01:04 PM

Hello all.
A bit confused with all this now. Isn't it now illegal to remove the DPF? Or if the job is good enough, the fun police remain none the wiser?

i cant see how they will sucessfully police it especially with second hand car ownership,
Which owner got the dpf removed,
Im sure jeremy kyle would love that case on his show :lol:
And shop around, the guys gutting the chamber cut the factory welds and refit the chamber its impossible to tell,

no mate took it for a plat earlier and no smoke under heavy driving.... and fuel return up already....god bit of poke aswell ....alls good .

Nothin like the feeling of getting more power from your car by just altering a few things yourself,
Egr blanking, induction filter upgrade and dpf internal removal its great,

#372621 Dpf

Posted by Lenny on 08 June 2014 - 07:04 PM

ECU reset...no longer in limp mode ...... still phoning the bloke in the morning.

Sounds good mate,
Is it smoking much since theres no dpf but not remapped yet?

different rules on the NCT aswell Kurt the dpf looks completly factory i want them to fully inspect it :lol:
And if probing the exhaust ive got a duplex thats 50% more air mixing with the fumes from a single exit aswell.

#372491 Avon Tyres Any Good ? Anybody Had Them?

Posted by Lenny on 08 June 2014 - 10:25 AM

because it stops them from inspecting the upper engine bay n components....   ive had the same advisory's since owning the car lol
hope ford replaced the bolt and clip for ya? 

:lol: no ford said :Removed! All and said it all day lol
Was only when i went for dpf internal removal we found there blunder,
NCT over here only check a list of things,
For example levin was leaking oil, but its not on there list to check for that lmao

Cheers lenny. Any links to where I can get the loom insulation or is it just eBay?
Sent from my C5303 using Ford OC mobile app

just ebay mate,
Ive been intending to remove plastic panels remove hoses one by one, measure length and cut the same in blue then fit it,
I bought the PVC tape and pipe cutters seperate but a stanley blade would do the same job,   

And i take it you need high temp paint for the colour coding?
Sent from my C5303 using Ford OC mobile app

I dont think ya do mate,
I left my bits in to the body shop when having the body kit sprayed so its all the same paint with a clear laquor coat on top to give the shine,
I then done the text detail myself using masking tape and aerosols,
used a syringe and tub of paint for the blue oval.




#372457 Blanking Off Egr Valve?

Posted by Lenny on 08 June 2014 - 08:42 AM

Get yourself a stainless steel plate scott, if its a new EGR, it likely will have a benefit!


I'm sending it back into the garage Friday they are going to have a look. Maybe they will suggest to do that

in any case its always best to blank the egr mate,
If i was you and had a week before going to the mechanics id purchase this Stainless Steel blanking plate for less than £5

Ive blanked mine, aswell as many others, blanking will prevent turbo failure in the long run, see the independent feedback from my guide on blanking the 1.6TDCi

Id buy the blanking plate today, and have it in my hand on the day of going to the mechanics, tell them "while your there put that in please"
Rather than asking about it that day, paying them that days labour,
Followed by then purchasing a stainless steel EGR blank and going back to pay them again to open it up and fit it,
Id have it with me next time i visit,
That's best advise i can give.

#372435 Dpf

Posted by Lenny on 08 June 2014 - 07:49 AM

Lenny...car gone into limp mode...no power....code read it came up with P242F .....pending...looked it up something to do with Dpf been sooted up...so today removed the Dpf...found the exhaust had one sensor and two pipes which were pressure  sensor pipes that run up to a pressure sensor on the side of the battery tray/box.
Anyhow removed the guts from inside the exhaust still in limp mode...so booking it in for tuesday to get the remap and Dpf files deleted.

hi mate,
That's mad/ironic how the dpf has began to kick up, just as we were discussing removal,
Good you got it gutted im sure it was pretty black inside,
And although the pressure is now released, the car will remain in limp mode until the error has been reset on the ECU
This can be done using an ELM327 module, but in your case it may throw up a different error due to the increased flow,
The guy remapping will sort all of that out anyways.
