    DPF - remove or not?

    Hi All, I'm contemplating getting it it removed and mapped out, however has anyone had this done and regretted it? I understand the performance benefits, along with not having to worry about it anymore, but what about it passing the MoT; and increased visible soot when driving? It's not causing any problems at the moment, but I'm kinda thinking about preventative maintenance, and am planning on getting it into Avon Tuning for a gearbox update primarily, and can get them to check and either clean or remove it at the same time. Any help and advice greatly appreciated! Thanks, nick
  2. I am quite new to this forum but I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for great writes-up which helped a lot in the past. I'm facing issues with my DPF since more than 1 year ago and after more than 15 times tries of force-regen with no success at all and now I am thinking to remove it. Before doing this, I would like to ask you all for an advice of which garage should I use to do the removal and also I've read somewhere that once you remove a DPF the turbo might be exposed to too much air which can cause premature failures of the turbo. If any of you have still the DPF removed, could you advise me if there is any downside of this? From what I've read over the forum I know there should only be good news after a DPF removal but I'm quite skeptical at the moment, so I'm not sure what to do. Any advice would be very welcome. Thank you so much
