***IMPORTANT NOTE: There are no longer any sensor fittings included in the exhaust kit, they are completely removed with the tune***
Increase the performance, reliability and fuel economy of your 2009-2016 VW Touareg and Audi Q7 TDI by eliminating the restrictive Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF), Adblue Injection system and factory catalytic converters, thus allowing the exhaust to flow more freely.
This package includes all the hardware you will need for a complete DPF & Adblue delete. This kit is 100% bolt-on. No cutting or welding required. These parts will bolt up between your factory downpipe and tail pipe. This kit is built to last with high quality 304 Stainless Steel.
All of the hardware needed for installation is included.
- Touareg & Q7 TDI (2009-2016) DPF/Adblue Delete Midpipe
- Reducer Adapter - 3" Midpipe to Stock Exhaust
- 3" Exhaust Strap Clamp (2)
- Stainless Steel Nuts and Bolts
- Made from 304 Stainless Steel
- 3" OD 16 gauge tubing
- 100% bolt-on
- Malone Tuning ECM Upgrade for DPF & Adblue Delete
Will fit the following North American spec vehicles with DPF (diesel particulate filter):
- Audi Q7 TDI V6 3.0L (2009-2016)
- VW Touareg TDI V6 3.0L (2009-2016)
- Porsche Cayenne Diesel
-Support the transmission and remove the transmission crossmember to remove the original exhaust without cutting it.
-Access to one of the bolts on the downpipe flange is quite difficult. We’ve found that a combination of long wobble extensions will allow access to the offending nut through the wheel well.
-There will be 2 rubber hoses left hanging after the DPF is removed. These, along with all unused sensor connectors can simply be tied up, out of the way.
-We typically pack unused electrical connectors with grease to avoid corrosion in the event that you ever return the vehicle to stock.
Usual install time is less than 2 hours.
