    I've heard rumours about a couple of companies making them, but never seen one in anywhere but cloud cuckoo land.

    Someone said that they got one made by Powerflow I think (memory may be wrong here!). If you do get one made, be sure to get it made with a union for the EGT sensor. The likes of MAS just cut the flange of the DPF, weld a bit of straight pipe to it and leave the sensor tied up under the car, which I don't like!

    I have been looking into this a lot and calling MANY companies re this.

    In Short - no.. No one that I find does a simple replacement pipe. Everyone doctors the current DPF to achieve this... as littleteapot says - its important that you keep the housings for the sensors and pressure pipe and these are not just tied up out the way

    The pressure sensing pipes don't matter - they can be disconnected at the sensore end and removed.

    But the EGT sensor can't be removed completely because the ECU will get upset. So what some companies do is tie it up under the car. I don't think the ECU cares about the errant temperature reading, but then it is exposed to salt etc and may corrode and malfunction, causing a fault code.

    So in summary, not critical to have it properly fitted, but I don't like bodges. I know one members car who is misbehaving after such a DPF removal, and I've not been able to find anything wrong other than the errant EGT sensor reading - but no conclusive proof that this is the cause either... confused. If it was properly fitted and giving normal readings, its one less suspect on the list when diagnosing a fault.
