Why removing DPF’s can cause you an expensive problem

Pollution equipment, like exhaust systems themselves, are fitted for a reason. EGR coolers and DPF’s both work to significantly improve the quality of the air we breathe.

To persuade people not to tamper with these systems there’s a blanket rule that covers disabling any emissions devices on a vehicle and the fines are eye watering. $$$$$$$

On the spot, you can be handed a $500 fine for removing your DPF. If you end up in front of a judge that fine can be increased to $22 000. Get caught selling a car with emissions gear removed? That’s a potential $250,000 fine for an individual and up to $1,000,000 for the shop that did the work. Those are eye watering amounts of money, especially when you consider a competent workshop can keep your emissions systems in tip-top shape.
