A DPF delete is the removal of a vehicles diesel particulate filter (DPF) and configuration the computer system to function without the DPF. The exhaust is used to physically replace the DPF, while the tuner disables the vehicle's regeneration mode and ensures that no engine codes come up. The DPF is an important component of the vehicle’s system and helps eliminate air pollution, specifically nitrous oxides and diesel particulate matter.
