DPF & EGR Delete
DPF, DEF & EGR Delete Services
Enhance Your Diesel’s Performance & Efficiency with a DPF, DEF, or EGR Delete Service
A DPF, EGR or DEF delete is one of the most requested and popular diesel engine services we perform at Revolution Motors Edmonton.
A Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) has been built into your diesel engine to help remove diesel particulate matter or soot from the engine. The soot is stored in a canister containing soot-catching compartments that look like honeycombs, located in the middle of your diesel truck’s exhaust system. Once the ‘honeycombs’ get plugged up with soot, the exhaust becomes restricted and then it starts a regen cycle. During this cycle, diesel fuel is used to burn off the soot so it all comes out at once and your exhaust system can breath again.
When a DPF is damaged it can result in a massive repair bill and often the removal of that particulate matter comes at the cost of power, fuel economy and engine life. A DPF system that remains in place will give your truck terrible fuel economy and once removed, the fuel economy can be improved by up to 30%.
Most diesel truck owners are looking for increased performance, horsepower and torque because they use their truck for towing or carrying heavy loads. This is why many diesel truck owners choose a DPF delete. Edmonton diesel repair shops like Revolution Motors offer this DPF delete service to ensure your engine is still kept clean while helping your engine gain power, efficiency, and a longer lifespan. In many cases, a proper DPF delete will result in gaining over 100-horsepower while improving your fuel mileage and the lifetime of your vehicle. Ask us about a Ford 6.4L DPF Delete Service, or a service for your GMC, Dodge, or Chevy truck.
The Diesel Engine Fluid (DEF) system is essentially the same as the DPF, except it uses DEF instead of diesel fuel. Similar to the DPF system, the DEF system removes soot from your engine and stores it in a canister located within your exhaust system in little ‘honeycomb’ shaped compartments. When too much soot builds up and needs to be cleared, this system goes into a regen cycle and uses DEF at a high heat to burn off and blow out the built up soot.
Not only does DEF reduce fuel efficiency and performance, but it can also cause the system to freeze up since it is mostly made up of water! This is a major concern in a northern climate like Edmonton. A DEF Delete Service for your Cummins, Duramax, or Powerstroke diesel engine from Revolution Motors will remove this system so your truck is running at peak efficiency and performance. Trucks with the DEF delete install can improve fuel efficiency by up to 30%.
An Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) system has been installed in your diesel engine to reduce the vehicle’s exhaust emissions. Though it might reduce the exhaust, it increases the amount of soot in your engine, reduces performance and mileage, and can shorten your engine’s lifespan. EGR systems also have a bad reputation for causing engine troubles including stuck or cracked parts and other issues.
An EGR Delete Kit is an aftermarket part that removes the EGR from your vehicle. Whether you need a Duramax EGR delete, Cummins EGR delete, or an EGR delete for your Ford 6.0, Revolution Motors can provide a quality service that will get the job done and allow your engine to perform at its best. You’ll love the power you get as your engine runs cleaner and lasts much longer.
