hi sorry for delayed responce,
Lenny....... how long can i drive about once the DPF has been removed....... got use of a 4 post lift on saturday to remove the DPF...but the lad doing the remap and DPF remove software can't do remap till 3 weeks from now....... will it do any damage or you think it would be best not to remove DPF for now....?
Id have a look at the dpf in place,
If it uses eloys fluid then i would do the ecu remap first then do the dpf within a week,
If the dpf is ceramic then you can go ahead and do it on saturday followed by remap at later date to remove smoke.
If the dpf has no sensors or pipes going in to it then its a ceramic dpf,
If it has pipes and sensors then is an eloys type,
When removing an eloys type take extreme care not to get skin in contact with the eloys fluid as its pretty acidic stuff,
Also does the guy understand you only need him to remap?
The remapping process only takes maximum 20 minutes download and upload from/to car via the OBD port in the drivers footwell.
