With the advent of high compression engines, turbo chargers and direct fuel injection at phenomenal pressures we have a range of diesel engines that out perform thier petrol counterparts and return better fuel economy.

The big plus is that with a simple remap you are able to dramatically increase the performance and also generally get better fuel economy.

We look at all aspects of diesel engine tuning and suggest that you join our forum for more information about the world of high performance diesels.

The particulate filter is a stand alone unit. It is located upstream of the cat in the exhaust system and its purpose is to remove soot particles from the gas stream. The cat the proceeds to do its usual job of converting CO to CO2 and is in no way dependent or relied upon by the particulate filter.

In diesels the cats are two way devices and run in unregulated mode (ie. no O2 sensor like a petrol car).
