    Thumbs up DPF

    hi guys just wondering i am thinking about gutting my particulate filter and i have found the pipe which is the differential pressure senser which goes into th engine bay and connects to a plug with wires on i have heard you can crimp this tube and it wont flag up any engine managment lights once the filter is gutted

    i want to do this for performance gains and less complications of it failing and becoming blocked


    any ideas or comments on this??

    i gutted my cat on my mondeo tdci i had and it made a big differerence and was good

    does the veccy have any cats if it has a dpf or is it just the dpf????

    cheers hope you can advise me on what you think?

    and if any one has a how 2 on this then i would like to see it thanks

    Mine did a regen yesterday afternoon and because the filter has been removed it kicked out tons off smoke and I mean tons. When I stopped at traffic lights the car was in a cloud. There must be a way of stopping the regen but I don't know how yet, if anybody has any ideas I'm listening
