DPF / EGR Removal the Basics.
The EGR valve (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) is an emission control device designed to reduce NOx emissions .Our EGR Delete and EGR bypass software is designed to remove the functionality of the EGR valve to ensure it removes the problems associated with these devices. To replace an EGR valve is can be very expensive . We can remove the operation of the EGR ,not just turn the lights as some do and solve the problems associated with failure.
The main BENEFITS OF EGR REMOVAL - EGR DELETE
- Restored engine power.
- Lower emissions - As faulty EGRs produce much higher soot deposits.
- The delete can prevent EGR replacement which can be very costly.
- Increase/ Restore fuel efficiency.
DPF Removal / Delete
The DPF looks similar to an exhaust, but is mounted close to the engine. Inside is a honeycomb ceramic structure designed to filter the exhaust gases while not interrupting gas flow (which would hinder performance). The exhaust gases flow through the honeycomb collecting tiny particules of soot on there way, so reducing the amount of air pollution. Once the DPF reaches a certain level of ‘Saturation’ it goes into a regeneration cycle to burn off the soot collected. All well and good so far.
Now the problem is, without getting to technical the regeneration needs certain conditions. Motorway use on a regular basis is great as the DPF will get hot enough through a regeneration process to perform the necessary procedure. But stop /starts and short journeys cause the DPF not to regenerate and the DPF becomes saturated to a point of no return. This is when you start looking at prices to replace the said DPF and Hey Ho 600,800 or 1000 euros and labour ,and you start wishing you had gone on the motorway. (Basic info only wiki DPF gets you really into it).
Other causes of failure.
- Failed Sensors stopping regeneration.
- High mileage with compacted/clogged soot
- Engine issues, Injectors, valve stem oil seals
- Driving in low gears,not allowing engine to heat up.
- Many factors can cause the DPF to Fail..SO Delete
Benefits for DPF Delete
- No need to replace DPF at big costs.
- End of forced regeneration and limp mode.
- Improved power output. Less exhaust gas restriction
Here at iTech - tuning we are genuine software developers who have the knowledge and experience in DPF Removal from modern ECU’s. Our DPF delete software will ensure that you have trouble free motoring after the DPF removal and give you piece of mind that your vehicle will not go into limp mode due to DPF regeneration ever again.
If you have any question or would like information, please contact us. We will explain all the procedures with you. The best thing! With a performance or economy remap we can carry out DPF AND EGR delete all inclusive of the price of the remap.
