    Default Cdti smoke test

    Hi all

    Had an MOT today on the 1.9 CDTI.

    Results last year:
    Smoke Test Limit: 1.50 1/m
    Mean value 0.43 1/m
    Fast pass

    Todays test after having a dpf removal, re-map and egr disabled/blanked:
    Smoke Test Limit: 3.00 1/m
    Mean value 2.72 1/m
    Pass, just about I am guessing.

    Does anyone think the re-map and dpf and de-cat has had something to do with it? Looking at the figures I would say it has only just passed.

    Please advise.

    dpf will have a big effect on it.. All the soot which would have been collected now comes out the back and the smoke test is something to do with the 'opacity' of it... ie how clear the exhaust emissions are...
