Forge Motorsport DPF Replacement Pipe For Golf 2 Litre Diesel
Forge Motorsport has solved the problem of DPF replacement for the VW Group Golf and Leon 2.0 litre platform with a beautifully engineered replacement stainless steel pipe kit. In one fell swoop, this completely eliminates the factory DPF system, removing the need for costly replacement and restoring the vehicle’s original performance and economy.
The diesel particulate filter has become a huge problem for all modern diesel powered vehicles, as the DPF will need replacing at some point as part of the service schedule, due to overloading. As it is considered to be a “wear and tear” item, and therefore not under warranty, replacement is always at the owner’s expense. An overly-loaded filter can lead to dash lights coming on, limited power and poor MPG due to regeneration.
VOSA is already very clear that removal of the DPF will NOT constitute an MOT fail, as long as the car still meets its emissions specs. The Forge part is a simple ‘bolt-off, bolt-on’ replacement for the original and future-proofs the car against any further DPF problems. Ideally, it should be run in conjunction with aftermarket software to gain the full benefit of its superior gasflow characteristics. Fabricated entirely from 304 grade stainless steel, with a stainless flexi-joint, the Forge DPF replacement pipe is also pretty future-proof itself!
The complete kit, with all pipework and brackets is priced at £369.00 + VAT. Very favourable when compared with the price of replacing the original parts!
