Volvo Forum dishes out free DPF-delete maps shocker

I can't believe this, openly sharing a DPF delete software fix :shock:

As the Volvo 2.0D is essentially a HDi unit is this information likely to cross over into the Pug software?

Reading the guys instructions you'd need balls of steel to give it a go :shock:

Hmmm. Volvo owners with balls of steel? :?

One imagines there wouldn't be multitudes fitting those criteria. :roll:

Now, if I had a Volvo, I probably would go for it. It's not so different from the process for producing and installing a DPF-free version for our cars, a bit more hands on, but not terrifying to those of us who grew up with the steam powered mircoprocessors of the 80's.

I was going to say there was no way this would 'port' to a Pug, but since he's describing a conversion process and not offering a converted map, Any Pug with the same ecu, MIGHT be able to be converted in exactly the same way.

Mustard admit I had no idea said 2.0 Volvo has a real engine. :shock:

Yep, the very same.....just don't mention the 1.6D :oops:

The 1.8 and 2.0 Pez engines are Ford units and definitely don't suffer high oil consumption no they don't :supafrisk:

I think so it's just that the 1.6 seems to be criticised a bit more? to be fair I've not seen any turbo fails of HP fails on the forum but I think a few have said the way the 1.6 drives seems to be variable and there's a few dealer software fixes about?

To be honest although we've heard the Pug 1.6D suffers Turbo failure it seems mostly down to neglect and not changing/cleaning a mesh filter on the oil feed, armed with this info an owner can then make sure these things are dealt with before they become a problem.

In other news my suspension is going all 'Ford' on me again I think, something's not right and I'm tired of this suspension it lets the car down it's a constant PITA. Engine and box are still stonking though as it the general condition....had it 5.5 years now :shock:
