    Question Recommended Sydney DPF & EGR delete?

    Hi guys

    My 2010 Tiguan TDI has developed a clear high pitched "whistle" down near the EGR when running, and the engine is throwing an underboost code and going into limp mode when put under load. I have had a "decarbon" done and that hasn't fixed it. It has also been using coolant, which initially thought might be leaking around the waterpump, but it seems a dodgy EGR can also be a cause from what I have found in research. It has 180,000km's on the clock now, and I feel it is time to do the EGR/DPF delete to prolong the life of the vehicle.

    So, any recommendations on who in Sydney is a good option for doing the EGR & DPF delete? I presume it'll be more than just putting blanking plates on the EGR and a through-pipe on in place of the DPF in order to remap the vehicle and stop it throwing other codes?

    Thanks in advance.

    You will also need someone to remap the ECU to code out the EGR and DPF systems so that you do not get any check engine lights etc. I believe even a basic (cheap) Bluefin Superchips tune can do this for you along with a stage 1 tune (they may charge extra though), otherwise im not sure who would be best to see in Sydney for a custom TDI tune.

    So the answer to your question is no.
