I'd feel more comfortable shipping my ECU to Canadia than across the pond either way
Have you read through a thread(on another forum) where someone overseas did remove the DPF, had their tune changed and ultimately put the DPF back on? I thought he said he saw next to no gain and did not feel the soot was worth that very small gain. Personally I'd not get high hopes on this gaining power stateside until someone is the test subject and has a good person tuning for the change.
