    "CAHA" is a 2.0TDi engine, what are you looking for, you will fine that newer engines won't show up much in google as they will still be under warranty and fixed by dealers, once they are around 5+ years old more people will be asking for support.

    Ah OK thanks, so I'm correct in stating my engine code is a "CAHA"?
    I don't know why, but I randomly thought vag engine codes were 3 letters long!
    My other car has probably influenced me which has an "AWX" engine code.

    And I'm actually looking to see if there are any egr delete kits out there as well as dpf delete kits.

    New CR engines are normally 4 letters long. Don't delete your DPF just yet, google for the new MOT rules regarding DPF.

    Yup, if it was meant to be there from factory and it's been removed then you'll get a nice big fail.

    So I see removing a dpf on a car that is fitted with it as OE is now illegal.
    Never mind I'll knock that off the list.
    That just leaves egr delete.!??

    Best contact some of the remap company's as they may be able to find a kit that would fit your engine, then they would need to map out the EGR.

    I'll have a hunt around.
    I'm really not a fan of having used exhaust gases recirculating back into the engine.
    A definite no no for me.

    Yer, looking for a kit for my 3.0TDi, but as I will need to get the car remap to remove the EGR, I'm looking for a local company with a good 4WD rolling road, as I may as well go for a decent remap.

    Yes its now an not failure to remove a dpf from a vehicle fitted with one from factory.
    However, There is a local company that will remove the dpf and cut it open and remove all the rubbish and weld a straight through pipe in there before rewelding the dpf box back up.
    Surely this will get through an not as the dpf box will still visibly be there but it will now be a straight through pipe in disguise.
