2.4 DPF removal and remap at Peak Alfa - what a difference!

Two weeks ago I had the DPF removed and engine remapped at Peak Alfa. the DPF was 77% clogged up and resulted in lots of annoying lumpy/jerky driving.

I have a 07 200bhp model 2.4 which was fitted from new with a Steinbauer P-Box, giving around 240bhp. Power delivery before visiting Peak Alfa was a delay then boom as it all came at once, accompanied when flooring the throttle by a very un-pc cloud of black smoke. Not very friendly to other drivers.

Now the engine is completely transformed; although power is about the same as before ( around 240bhp) the power delivery is much smoother and linear through the rev range; before there was a delay then the power came in a big lump, now the power comes faster and smoother, which makes a big difference on twisty roads.

I was averaging about 36mpg before remap now I am averaging at least 45mpg.

Thanks again to Roger at Peak Alfa for transforming my car.
