Volvo engines delete the DPF O/O trucks

Thread starter #1
D 11, D13 - D16 DPF Delete kit.
Anyone had any experiences with them?
Looking at the ones by the OTR folks.

OK so I'm going to put it out there, modifying emission components is illegal. It is frowned upon to discuss such matters as well.

That being said, I have never heard of delete kits for these engines.
the OP must have money to throw around since there can be huge fines as well if they catch him!!!

oh yea and a SHOP won't work on an engine that's been tampered with!!!
Well, that can be true, but there are many dealer shops that will work on a emissions deleted truck but you will not like the bill when they are done. They are required to restore the emissions stuff to the truck at the owner's expense. Imagine that bill when they are done! And there is a definite risk that you could be reported to EPA. Not sure about the latter, as the dealer will probably just be content to take your money for the job alone. There might be an occasional dealer shop that will turn a blind eye to emissions delete, but they are very rare.

It is simple. You delete the stuff, and you can kiss your warranty goodbye and never see a dealer shop ever again. Not a bad proposition if you are Mr. Moneybags, but most folks are not in that league.

We've been through this in another thread. This is incorrect information. There is no such regulation or law. It's very possible this is a manufacturer's dealer shop policy, but it is not law. No shop is allowed to do work on a vehicle that has not been authorized by the owner and no shop is allowed to hold a vehicle for any reason other than failure to pay the bill.

The shop may refuse the work. The shop may have its own policy that all vehicles must be compliant before other work is done. But they don't have any authorization to force repairs on a customer or confiscate noncompliant vehicles.

Not directly, but the problem is that if a modified truck comes out of a manufacturer's shop after repairs unrelated to the delete and is then busted, the shop may have to defend itself from charges that they did the delete.

It's about how much liability the shop wants to risk.

And that's why the shop has right of refusal.
