This pipe allows you to remove the restrictive Cat and/or DPF filter which is fitted to all modern diesel engines.
The DPF or diesel particulate filter is fitted in the exhaust and catches soot and other diesel particulates, these filters have to go through a regeneration every once in a while which is controlled by the ECU, this usually happens when the vehicle is on the motorway. If the vehicle has not been able to regenerate the filter for a while or there is a fault with the engine itself the filter will block up and initially cause a fault to appear on the dash board, if you continue to use the vehicle the filter can block completely causing the engine to stop running. A new filter from a dealer will often be £500 or more plus labour.
Removing the DPF and the cat allows the engine to breath more efficiently freeing up power and reducing fuel consumption, it also improves reliability.
This pipe is made from stainless steel and will come with everything you can see in the pictures.
