glad you hopefully getting sorted pal. just didnt want to see you ending up with the crap method that others have fallen for. keep us posted .


i had egr delete done when mine was remapped. just saves any further problems down the line. consider blocking off with blanking plate mate if not already done(cant remember if u have or not hahaha)

any that state it needs filling- stay away from pal. my system is empty and has been since remapping back in september. so if they cannot do without this requirement then look elsewhere.


what you want is somewhere where they map it and have rolling road-ie Bigfish,avon tuning,more-bhp ....plenty around will tell you what it should be done like. infact Avon tuning post on this forum-i'll find there member and you can speak to them

honestly shouldnt take longer than 30mins to an hour to program the ecu also- so no need to have courtesy car(just wait for it to be done)


it may cost slightly more at one of the bigger companies but the support network is there of something goes wrong.

who's doing the reamp? you have several companies around your area that will do the job properly- as i was going to travel up that way to get mine but found a tuner that offered to do it as advised. many people i got quotes for were doing it your way- just beaware if something goes wrong and the ecu wipes, will they be able to get you back up and running?

he's talking rubbish pal -the dpf is purely a visual check -that sensor is nothing to do the check at all. ..believe what you choose- but trust me that method you have advised is the half assed method.


heck if thats the case then you can always connect the sensor and chop the wires further out of view...and even then you still shouldnt have to refill the tank!!!


your car,your money mate...i know from experience that mine has been done the correct way.

read that where i posted about the sensor- a lot of folks were unaware about it...

no thats the lazy way- get the remap done properly. there is a sensor behind the rear offside passenger seat -this needs disconnecting and mapping out - then you dont need to fill up anything.


alot of tuners do it your way- mine went and did it properly -by removing the lot from the ecu when the remap was done

#372987 1.6 Tdci -2007 - Dpf Removed And Remapped!

Posted by dreadz on 09 June 2014 - 04:34 PM

yep already got egr delete in the remap and also the egr been blanked at source too :P

#372960 Dpf

Posted by dreadz on 09 June 2014 - 03:57 PM

mines remapped and dpf removed- but interesting that you manually removed dpf from the system -and not remapped yet but able to reset light - wonder how long before it comes on again? keep us posted pal.


i have the dongle too, and every month connect and check for faults- not had any since remapped and dpf removed with egr delete and blocked off via manifold.


if your able to drive around for ie: a week at a time before limp mode then thats not a bad solution until people can arrange a remap at their convieniance
