DPF/EGR removal + Performance Remap

Going for the DPF removal on my 1.9 jtd soon but was wondering if it would be a good idea to then get a performance map added as well. Does anyone have anyone experience in this?

Hi Jay,

I have my 156 1.9 JTD booked in with Reidy Remaps (Yeovil) on Thursday.

Having a custom remap with the removal of EGR. Apparently the EGR removal is free with any remap (£220).

I'll let you know how it goes!

Are you having the DPF removed as well or just the ERG?

Jay, if you have a UK GT then you won't have a DPF.

The performance map is great but I must admit I was expecting the standard Alfa clutch to be able to handle more power. Had to map it down a lot because of the clutch slipping. Just bought a Fast Road clutch and gonna go back in a few weeks to map it up some more and test the power on the dyno! Await figures

And no more engine management light because of the EGR blank! Yay!
