I think you may find that's illegal now and will fail it's next MOT.

I dont know the exact standing on that now but I know the powers that be are getting pretty hot on it.

It's visible smoke that is the giveaway, presumably.

(And a fail in itself IIRC?)

Definite improvement in MPG & power AND best of all an immediate MOT fail , Plate limit of your car will easily be exceeded once DPF is removed .
Any & all signs of tampering / modification / deletion of emission control equipment is an automatic MOT fail .

You MIGHT get lucky with the analyser passing , BUT should the tester notice ANY smoke again it's an automatic fail

Good luck
