Renault Trafic with Hybrid Turbo

Renault Trafic with Hybrid Turbo, DPF Delete and custom remap

We first saw this Renault Trafic when the owner came down for a power run on our rolling road. He wanted to see what power it was making as he felt it quite quick. When we ran the van on the rolling road it made standard power. That’s when the owner enquired about a remap. We custom remapped the Renault Trafic on the rolling road and improved the standard 112bhp to a respectable 149bhp.

The van responded and drove fantastically after the remap. We thought we had seen the last of the owner 😉

Little did we know that 149bhp in a Renault Trafic isn’t good enough when you are being overtaken by VW T5 on the motorway, so he returned to find out if he could get any more power out of his van. The answer was yes, the van still had the dpf fitted and by deleting that we could increase the bhp. He then asked about the turbo and could we do anything with it. We hadn’t had any experience with the turbo from the Trafic so we contacted our Turbo Guy to find out what could be done.

Brilliant news he could hybrid the turbo!

The van was booked in for the turbo to be hybridized. The dpf deleted and the egr valve blanked off before being custom remapped again.

It was tight squeeze removing the turbo and soon as we got it off it was sent over to our Turbo Guy. Whilst the turbo was being worked on we performed the dpf delete and blanked off the egr valve.

With the hybrid turbo fitted back into the engine bay the Renault Trafic headed back over to the rolling road for the new custom remap.

DPF removal from Subaru Legacy

DPF removal in a Subaru Legacy

Subaru ADE Tuning DPF REmap
Towards the end of last year we had a phone call from a customer asking for advice as the DPF warning light kept illuminating on his Subaru Legacy. The light illuminates when the filter is trying to regenerate itself. This normally isn’t an issue but when the DPF is blocked it is unable to regenerate causing the car to go into limp mode or even worse it can cause damage to the car. We advised the customer that we could remove the DPF and use our software to tell the engine management that the DPF is no longer there and not to regenerate again. A few days before the customer was going to drop the Subaru off for the DPF removal the warning light went off so he called us up to cancel his workshop booking, he was advised that this was only a temporary fix and the light would illuminate again.

Fast forward a few weeks…

With the Subaru Legacy showing the DPF light again it was book back in for the DPF removal with the software and also a custom remap. The owner used the car for towing a horse trailer and had learned about our remap whilst looking at our website page ‘Better Towing with ADE Tuning’

With the car in the workshop the process of physically removing the DPF began. Here at ADE Tuning we remove the innards of the DPF by cutting it open discretely, removing the block filter and welding the casing back up. When the car was back together the software for the DPF and custom remap was written.

The Subaru was test driven and taken over to the 4WD dyno as the customer was interested in the power gain. As standard the Subaru Legacy SE Boxer Estate produced 147bhp, after the custom remap written in house the car achieved 184bhp with 312ft/lb torque – a fantastic result!

Now let’s hope that the customer remembers he’s pulling his horse box 😉

DPF software of a Fiat Doblo

This Fiat Doblo brought to us with the DPF already removed to have the DPF software installed.

A Diesel Particulate Filter (or DPF) is a device designed to remove diesel particulate matter or soot from the exhaust gas of a diesel engine.
The addition of a diesel particulate filter has a tendency to make considerably more issues than it is designed to fix which explains why most people use a DPF removal service like ADE Tuning offers. With our custom made DPF Removal Software, we will reprogram your vehicle’s engine management system to fully disable the diesel particulate filter which means you won’t have any more DPF warning lights on your dashboard, your engine going into LIMP mode or any more costly DPF issues going forward. We can also remove the blocked DPF element from your exhaust allowing your engine to breathe again if it hasn’t already been removed.

More information about DPF removal and DPF software can be found here

ADE Tunings’ DPF software will ensure that you have trouble free motoring after the DPF removal and give you piece of mind that your vehicle will not go into limp mode due to DPF regeneration ever again.

Audi A5 gets DPF delete and remap

Last week we had a beautiful, shiny red Audi A5 in for a custom remap and DPF delete.

This car is the owners pride and joy and this is apparent when you see the car in the flesh. Having already visiting our workshop to have a chat about how the car would perform with the DPF delete, egr blank and custom remap, the car was booked in.

As you can see in the photograph the DPF on this Audi is quite large. The DPF delete was performed and the engine bay reassembled.

 

All the remaps we do at ADE Tuning are custom to that vehicle and this Audi was no different. The custom remap was written for it and then it was driven over to the 4wd dyno to see the results.

When the customer came to collect his car, Anthony took him out on a test drive to make sure he was happy with the results and he walked back in with a massive grin on his face 😀

Here’s the reason why…

What is DPF removal?

DPF Removal from only £199.. See our PRICES page for further details

A diesel particulate filter (or DPF) is a device designed to remove diesel particulate matter or soot from the exhaust gas of a diesel engine.

 

DPF removal Blackburn
Nearly all diesel-engine cars, vans, trucks and other commercial vehicles, built after 2006 have a DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) fitted within the exhaust system. Being a filter, its job is to capture and store soot particles produced during the engine combustion process from entering the atmosphere, then every so many miles the engine will enter a regeneration cycle which is supposed to clean the filter by burning the soot and turning it into ash.

Inevitably every DPF filter is going to clog up at some point. Almost all manufacturers will claim this will take a very long time, but as this technology is new, we will only discover over time just how long they will last. This is making diesel enthusiasts very nervous as they are certainly not cheap to replace. A principal DPF concern is the fact that the diesel particle filter itself produces a blockage within the exhaust system.

Blocked DPF Blackburn

 

This in conjunction with the diesel catalytic converter results in several pounds per square inch of congestion and back pressure in your exhaust. Since adding the DPF to the exhaust system it has resulted in a reduction in fuel mileage, quite a few questions have been raised as to the reason why the government chose to make this technology a requirement when it’s not even used in many parts of the world. Given that the diesel available in the UK is all ultra-low sulphur there’s not nearly as much pollutant matter produced by diesel engines.

The addition of a diesel particulate filter has a tendency to make considerably more issues than it is designed to fix which explains why most people use a DPF removal service like ADE Tuning offers. With our custom made DPF Removal Software, we will reprogram your vehicle’s engine management system to fully disable the diesel particulate filter which means you won’t have any more DPF warning lights on your dashboard, your engine going into LIMP mode or any more costly DPF issues going forward. We also remove the blocked DPF element from your exhaust allowing your engine to breathe again!

DPF warning light Blackburn
In February 2014 the UK government brought out a visual inspection as part of the annual test for road vehicles. The tester must now look for the presence of a DPF filter section in the exhaust. As we have always just removed the insides from the DPF filter and left the original canister in place this means that you will not fail your MOT. With our custom made Software installed in the engine management system and the DPF removed from your car you will have a better free flowing exhaust system which will deliver more power, better fuel consumption and NO DPF clogging problems or DPF warning lights ever again. We also normally carry out a full engine remap at the same time to ensure your vehicle is running as efficiently as possible once the work is complete.

We offer other garage services in Lancashire including remaps.
