#391887 1.6 Tdci -2007 - Dpf Removed And Remapped!

Posted by dreadz on 30 July 2014 - 04:32 PM

just cut open and insides removed then welded back up. i also had no undertray cover fitted-so the tester could se it more openly...very risky move but no concerns from him. only had removed as it makes it easier when changing oil/filter.

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.

post several pics of the seat and we can have look..never had this problem with 4 kids and prob 20+ different cars?

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.
