    Question Time to deal with the DPF on my Treg + ECU remap

    Hello everyone...

    My Touareg went in for minor repairs to the front bumper early July. Went to collect it yesterday and the diesel pre-glow light came on. Repair shop did a quick scan on their diagnostic tablet (generic, not VCDS) and I phoned the error codes through to Tim.

    Looks like the DPF is clogged. Was hoping to do the auto regen on the way home but the vehicle is in limp mode...

    Anyway, I'll take her to Tim on Monday for a service and to see if he can force a regen through the VCDS.

    If he can't... I have to choose between replacing the DPF ($$) or a DPF remove and delete.

    Doing some googling today, I came across these guys: Veloce Performance (http://plugandplaychip.co.za) - they appear to be specialists in DPF delete / remove. I like that they provide a lot of background / contextual info about the process on their website.

    I emailed them to find out costs and their feedback was:

    "Tyrone,

    Thank you for your enquiry.

    DPF Remove & Delete R5500.00

    DPF Remove & Delete + Tuning (ECU Remap) R7500.00

    I would recommend ECU Remap to upgrade performance as the chips do not work well on these engines.

    No need for a new exhaust pipe.

    Regards"


    Claimed performance improvement through remap:

    Standard: 176kw 550nm
    Tuned: 213kw 620nm


    Anyone here dealt with them before?

    Any opinions on the ECU remap for a Treg (2011 V6 Tdi).

    Thanks guys!

    Tyrone
