  • Dpf delete

    hi there I have a quick question I am planning on doing a dpf delete on my ds3 ehdi 90 if I was to hollow out the dpf then not get it mapped for a week or two apart from the excess smoke would it put the car into limp mode and would it be okay to drive it for that short term

    will sound like a tractor with a bag of wheelnuts inside it

    emissions sensors may kick up error codes and warnings

              the 2 DS3 (5 yr ago) Ive seen with DPF removed sounded like a bag of nuts in a sore throat, and smoked like burning car tyres (Trying to think of more metaphors)

              Isnt DPF delete an MOT failure anyways?

                Yep Chris_Blue, part of the new MOT rules state that any evidence of a tampered DPF or removed DPF is an automatic fail.

                Here are the changes:

                Still if you're savvy and good enough to remove it, then put it back on again before the MOT and it doesn't get noticed, then it could still pass. It's not a risk I'd take personally.
