Modern DPF systems can cause many problems, most people request removal due to the following reasons:
✅ Lack of power
✅ Low MPG during regenerations
✅ Turbocharger failure
✅ Power upgrades
Whilst DPF removal could reduce stress on the engine and turbocharger there are other things to consider before making the decision of removing it. If your DPF is clogged, first you have to know why.
Our engineers can carry out a full diagnosis of your DPF system before cleaning, changing or removing your DPF.
There are many small reasons that can cause clogging or failure, identifying these early means the problem can be rectified, BEFORE it becomes an issue. We are always prepared to completely disable your DPF system if required, so the car doesn`t even know it had it before. Your MPG will increase and the engine will breathe easier.
The EGR valve (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) is an emission control device designed to reduce NOx emissions to help achieving the even more challenging Emission Regulations. This service is designed to remove the functionality of the EGR valve to ensure a better fresh air charge while removing the running issues associated with this device.
HOW DO EGR VALVES WORK?
✅ The EGR Valve creates a loop back from the exhaust manifold to the intake manifold to recirculate burnt gases.
✅ The EGR valve has a solenoid which controls the valve which in turn is controlled by the ECU.
✅ The ECU operates the solenoid by using a duty request cycle in order to open the valve and recirculate the burnt gases.
EGR VALVE PROBLEMS
As the EGR valve is constantly working with burnt exhaust gases they naturally have high soot content.
This soot in the gases causes a build-up of carbon deposits around the valve operation area which will get the valve to have a tendency of sticking in various positions. For full engine performance the EGR valve will be allowing the turbo system to pressurise the intake. A problematic EGR can create an open loop environment for the turbo as it provides a feedback straight to the intake manifold and as a result can cause boost issues along with huge reductions in power and also bad fuel economy!
BENEFITS OF EGR REMOVAL - EGR DELETE
✅ Restored Engine Power
✅ Restored MPG
✅ Can prevent DPF failure as the soot is caught in the DPF trap
✅ Can reduce the cost of EGR replacement
✅ Can save you time and money for periodically EGR/intake cleaning
LAMBDA (O2) removal
Many race intended cars do not need a catalyst system, as it is a waste of power through exhaust back-pressure. Lambda removal service will allow customers to get rid of trouble codes or limp-home caused by lambda sensor malfunction or physically removal of catalytic converter. The car behaves as if it never had a lambda sensor fitted.
*Legislation in most countries prohibits the removal of any emission control system. StageX Motorsport is not responsible and will not treat any complaint about technical inspection failure related to this
