The Shitrun uses eoloys and I don't believe it needs to inject further diesel to complete the regen? it just loads up the car's electrical systems to force you into driving harder (more heat). Or something.
All modern dizzlers are sh*t. Sam I don't understand why you don't just do your engine mods now? why wait for the warranty? in my view you're more likely to create a warranty claim by leaving the emissions crap in place whereas with it all removed you've just got an 'engine' running much cleaner and therefore more reliable. Worst case for you would be a knackered DMF/Clutch (not warranted) or a set of injectors/HP pump at worst.
Even with Eoloys the car performs a post combustion injection sequence to heat up the DPF. Eoloys just lowers the temperature that the soot burns for an easier regen. Instead of Eoloys my DPF has some special coating inside to perform the same thing.
Engine mods will be coming. I'm going to wait for the next oil change analysis to decide if I'm keeping the DPF or not. I can't put up with this level of fuel dilution obviously, it's really going to harm the engine long term. I'm also going to look into getting an oil pan like this...

It doesn't have the stupid raised sump plug that stops you draining all the oil out like the OEM sump.
At 50k the car is only under warranty for another 10k which I'll probably do in the next 6 months.
Money is an issue at the moment. Not skint but absolutely destroyed the savings. Getting married in June and the wedding, holiday and party along with putting a new bathroom in the house has just cost us about £5k.
Considering I want to fit a Focus RS airbox, airtec intercooler and a cat-back exhaust on the car before it goes in for a remap it's going to set me back the best part of £1000.
