belton massey/aftermarket DPF's

Hi all

I am having various issues with my 159 JTDm (excessive exhaust smoke, poor fuel economy, MIL light and limp home mode) which I think are due to the DPF. DPF vacuum pipe split a while back and having these issues ever since despite several forced regens.

If I knew it was definatley the DPF I would get it removed but need to prove that it is. A genuine Alfa Part is 2k + but I can get a belton massey DPF for around 300.

Has anyone fitted one of these or anyother aftermarket DPF before?

Save your money and put it towards the dpf / egr removal and remap

Why dont you borrow one? Im sure like me a few peeps have kept their dpfs after removal. You're welcome to borrow mine if you like.

For slightly more outlay you could have the DPF removed and a remap, would make your car a whole lot more fun :P

Yes I defo want it gone but dont want to spend 700 on DPF, EGR removal if I continue to have the smoke and poor ecomony. If I can borrow one and test to prove my DPF is fooked then that would be the best solution by far.

Where abouts are you 159_Kid? I'm Cambridgeshire way.
