DPF removal – For Performance
For the majority of clients a Stage 1 Remap will satisfy the need for extra performance and smiles, however for those wanting to get the very best power gains from their vehicle DPF removal is required. This significantly drops back pressure and allows us to run a stronger remap safely.
DPF Removal – Fixing Faults
By removing the DPF and having a DPF software delete 99% of the time this will resolve any DPF issues. The majority of our customers use DPF removal to fix DPF faults for peace of mind of a guaranteed fix. However if you would prefer to keep the DPF then see our DPF cleaning article.

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. Providing your vehicles engine is running efficiently it will pass an MOT.
We always recommend leaving your catalytic converter in place as this plays the main role in controlling the emissions. We can say from experience that our clients vehicles pass a normal emissions test on an MOT.

“After having my X3 06 reg. in limp mode for nearly a week due to the DPF filter being blocked I was recommended to do a remap, I had come across ecoMax and was happy with their reviews. When I got there I was well served and fully explained about all my options, I decided to go for the dpf removal and remap option that was altogether cheaper than repairing or replacing my DPF. Also I took advantage of the pay monthly scheme, the dpf removal and remap was all arranged for me and I must say that now that the job is done I’ve 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 feels like it has an extra turbo plus it gives nearly 100 miles extra on a full tank, I will recommend it to any diesel owner and would of left a 6 stars rating if it was possible, thankyou very much for making me a very happy customer!” – Miguel, BMW x3 2.0d
