I havent heard of anyone doing that but does seem like a good idea and i'll be looking at doing it after the new year. i think it's the garage i went to (wallace Performance) they much prefer working on japanese machines apparently! I'm an operations co-ordinator for Weatherford "specialise in BOP's and pressure control equipment" looking to move back down south next year if i can find the right job in the right location. I think manchester has a bigger market for tuning garages and yeah that sounds like a good idea. I'm pretty new to this forum so its good to get to know a few people
Yeah iv had the DPF "gutted" so opened, stripped out and welded up, better than spending money on a new downpipe. I have a common rail 2010 140bhp 2.0tdi A3 - is this not what you have? You must have the CR as you have a DPF, these are only fitted to the CR engines. Mine is a custom map not a standard REVO flash map, but having said that REVO would be able to do the EGR Delete code. What do you do for a living then? (sorry I only ask as I recruit in the Oil & Gas industry!) Im sure there are plenty of decent tuning garages in Manc or Abz. Open a thread on here or search to see if anyone else has asked before?
Thanks for replying sorry i've taken so long to get back to you. So your DPF has been deleted on VAG but is still physically part of the exhaust? seems like a good idea for future MOT purposes. I put my car into a tuning garage for an EGR delete and they reckoned there wasnt a revo code for an EGR Delete on our engine code only common rail. £500 is a great deal for the remap, really need to get this done now. I'm in Scotland but i work between Manchester and Aberdeen. I don't mind travelling if i know someone can get the job done right first time.
My girlfriends brother is a mechanica and works at Regal Autosport in Southampton. There is a guy who works there who also runs his own car tuning garage from home (has a custom built garage in the back, ramps etc.. builds and tunes cars all the time)
Hes a good friend of mine and I explained wha I wanted doing and he simply did it. He gutted the DPF rather than putting a straight pipe in (so upon MOT visual inspection it looks like the DPF is still there) and did the EGR blank. He also then remapped the car all for £500 all in.
The map is incredible, similar cars have seen gains of 40-60bhp and over 100lb torque. It is so smooth throughout the gears and pulls hard in any gear.
Where abouts do you live?
Noticed on the last thread you had your egr and dpf removed/deleted, where did you get this done and have you had any issues or performance changes? ive got the same car and same engine code as you but struggling to find someone who can delete egr and dpf on my car?
Thanks in advance
