    It should be fine to fit it,but be aware that the dpf might get clogged quicker than without the box on and regen more often,i took the insides out of my dpf on my last vectra c,to stop this happening,but boy did it smoke on the regen cycle,lol.

    I have just drilled a 12mm hole straight through the insides of my DPF as it kept blocking, did not bother with any of the crimping of pressure pipes like some posts on here suggest.

    So far, so good. No engine management/car & spanner lights so hopefully this will work out!!

    I had one on mine but I turned chicken and got a Remap to protect the DPF but still have power, but while it was fitted I had no problems and the power difference from standard was huge. You can up the power of the DTUK Grren box slightly by adjusting the adjuster screw but only by 2 notches so Andy at DTUK told me.
