So for the past couple of weeks my DPF sensor has been throwing up errors on the DIS. I had gone through the various methods of clearing the faults.. Some days it worked, some days it didn't. So, i decided to get the DPF removed.
EMTuning (Welcome To EMTuning - ECU Tuning, Vehicle Lighting, ECU remaps, HID and LED Lighting Kits) are local to me so it was a natural choice to chose them, plus having an excellent reputation for quality maps and customer service.
They guys were friendly and helpful in discussing the various options available.
The total work lasted around 3/4 hours. This included:
The labour to remove and fit the DPF.
Removal of errors produced.
Installation of remap to suit needs.
The end result is amazing! The car is now pushing 215-220bhp and 330lbs of torque. Gear changes appear to be smoother, revs go all the way to redline instead of maxing out at 4k. Fuel economy seems to have improved too. I regularly commute to Nottingham from Northampton (75 miles) and used to see on average 48-50mpg each way. Since the delete, 55-57mpg is quite easy to achieve.
Total package was £569 - quite a bit cheaper than many other companies so that was an added bonus
Pros:A lot more power
Smoother gear changes
Better fuel economy
Tad more smoke
Very tempting floor it
All in all im more than happy with the new setup and can’t recommend them enough!
