Are you looking to improve your vehicle’s performance?
A DPF delete is one to achieve it.
Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) - This is a filter installed in the exhaust system that filters soot and from exhaust gases. The soot is stored in a compartment within the exhaust system until it fills up. At around 50% full, the vehicle then starts what’s known as the regeneration cycle, which increases the exhaust gas temperatures to burn off this excess soot. And unless the vehicle is driven for long distances to achieve the increased heat required, it will not clean the filter correctly. Therefore, the DPF sensor logs the error within the system and in turn, the engine develops inefficient performance due to a clogged filter.
Regardless of how effective your vehicle’s regen cycle is, all DPFs will eventually need to be deep-cleaned (which requires your vehicle to be off the road for several days) or replaced all together. A replacement part can run you hundreds or even thousands of dollars depending on your vehicle.
What does a DPF delete kit do?
A DPF delete removes a vehicle’s DPF and configures the computer system to function without it. While there are an endless number of kits available, there are two main components to any DPF delete: the exhaust and the tuner. The exhaust is used to physically replace the DPF, while the tuner disables the vehicle’s regeneration mode and ensures that no other engine codes come up.
After installing a DPF delete kit, you’ll notice significantly increased horsepower and fuel economy. As an added bonus, you’ll add at least a few extra years onto your vehicle’s life.
DPF / EGR Deletes cost $400 each, if you are looking to also do an In-House ECU Remap we offer a set price of $1300 (including GST).
