There are so many options out there for remapping and even which type of map to go for or even who to use  but is If you have thought about remapping your car you may have also considered removing your DPF during the process, or indeed just having the DPF removed for the extra power and economy it may provide or due to blocked DPF light.

But think wisely about gutting  and removing your DPF for this reason as you could invalidate your insurance, fail your MOT and be forced to double your initial cost plus the cost of a new DPF due to having to put a new filer back on your car and have your car remapped for a second time.

DPF’s normally fail for a reason.  poor maintenance, short trips at slow speeds which don’t let the engine warm up enough to start the regeneration cycle.  you may have seen this before, there is normally a reason why the DPF has failed but don’t think just removing it is the best response, more information can be found below of two such articles.
