    Default Another 3.0 question!

    Emailed dtuk about putting a crd2 on my 05 estate and I had this response-

    Euro 3 dont have DPF's

    Weve sold about 25 systems to various dealers running dpf'd v6's using the green system and theyve all be over the moon...

    Am I incorrect in thinking that my estate is euro three but has a dpf and hence is not suited to tuning???

    All diesel estates have DPF's i believe m8. There are a few members running boxes with a DPF and have no problems so put it on and give it a go

    I've sent my digital 'Red' box back to dragonperformance to have the profile updated to a more "progressive" one.Apparently it's pretty much the same profile powerklick use on the 'green' box.

    They also said that a lot of the problems on the V6s were caused by owners "thrashing" the engines before they were fully warmed up.The car will apparently go into limp mode if the engine is used hard before certain oil and water temperatures are reached.This doesn't account for all the problems,but it may account for some.

    I have a V6 3.0 estate June 2005. I was lead to believe that it had a DPF, but it doesnt. Only the euro 4 3.0s did as far as Im aware.

    BTW I ran a DTUK CRD2 with no problem (other than the gearbox cant handle the extra power)

    Only the 1.9s I think. My 3.0 2005 estate hasn't got one

    But you still can't tune the Euro4 engine, right?

    DPF's came in as part of Euro 4 regulations did they not? Are only facelift 3.0CDTI's Euro 4 compliant, and therefore DPF-equipped?

    hmmmm well my siggy prefacelift took it and as the estate is 05 I am guessing its euro 3 so I might risk it!

    I only ever used the box on the lowest power setting anyway so its unlikely to get thrashed, just like the extra ooomph for occasional overtaking (on country lanes its an adrenaline sport and to make it smoother
