DPF Removal Peterborough – More Power, Less Problems
DPF Removal is required for stage 1.5 or stage 2 remaps, the main principle of gaining power is increased fuelling. As fuelling levels rise the amount of soot created increases, a DPF can only handle so much soot. Stage 1 remaps are designed to keep the soot levels within the tolerances of what a healthy dpf can handle. Anything past this is beyond the tolerances and would start to block up the DPF. Purely for this reason removal is required.
DPF Removal – Fixing Faults
By removing the DPF and having a DPF software delete 99% of the time this will resolve any DPF issues. We still have customers who use DPF removal to fix DPF faults. However if you would prefer to keep the DPF then see our DPF cleaning article.
DPF Removal Process, Pricing and Facts
We arrange for the DPF to be physically removed from the exhaust system and this is generally around the £120 mark. Once removed you will then need a remap to delete the DPF software, this will remove any DPF related engine management lights and stop the vehicle from regenerating/cleaning the DPF.
Key facts to understand regarding DPF removal:
Once removed it is illegal to drive your vehicle on the road, your vehicle could fail its mot. Our mechanics remove the internal filter inside the DPF canister. Once removed they weld the DPF canister back up leaving the DPF canister in place. Removing it in this way means it will pass the visual inspection for the MOT since the DPF canister is present. However there is potential for the vehicle to fail on the emissions test.

“After having my X3 06 reg. in limp mode for nearly a week due to the DPF filter being blocked I was advise to do a remap, I had come across ecoMax and was happy with the reviews, got there and was well served and fully explained about all my options, decided to go for the full option that was altogether cheaper than buying a new part plus labour, plus they give the instalment payments as option, both jobs are carried out with the same company, so you don’t need to go look for a mechanic, that will be included on the price and it’s located 10 min drive from the main shop, I must say that now that the job is done I never had so much power as well as response from the car not even from the day I bought it, it’s just amazing, the car fells like it has an extra turbo plus it gives nearly 100 miles extra on a full tank, will recommend it to any diesel owner and will rated as 6 stars if it was possible, thank you very much for making me a very happy customer?” – Miguel, BMW x3 2.0d
