Inlet Manifold Swirl Flap Removal / Delete


What Are Swirl Flaps?

Swirl flaps are small butterfly valves fitted to the intake manifold of some modern diesel engines. Their primary purpose is to create a swirling air motion as the air enters the combustion chamber, thereby promoting more efficient fuel-air mixing. While swirl flaps are designed to improve fuel economy and reduce emissions, they can sometimes become a point of failure in the engine, leading to a range of issues, including loss of power and potential engine damage.

Why Remove Swirl Flaps?

  1. Increased Reliability: Swirl flaps are susceptible to wear and tear, and a failure can result in costly engine damage.

  2. Enhanced Performance: Some drivers report smoother engine operation and better throttle response after swirl flap removal.

  3. Maintenance Cost: Removing the swirl flaps can potentially reduce the long-term maintenance costs associated with swirl flap repairs and replacements.

Our Approach

Software Deletion

If your swirl flaps are not leaking, we can effectively “delete” them through software programming. This will bypass the swirl flaps, allowing you to achieve the benefits of removal without the need for physical extraction.

Physical Removal

If you opt for physical removal, or your swirl flaps are already removed, we can then proceed to software deletion. This will ensure that you won’t experience any engine error codes or performance issues related to the swirl flaps.

Important Notice

We do not perform physical removal of swirl flaps if they are leaking due to being a mobile service. Leaking swirl flaps are an indication of a more severe issue that requires immediate attention. If your swirl flaps are leaking, it is advisable to consult a qualified mechanic for repair or replacement before considering software deletion.

Remapped and the car has never been so good. Fuel economy has risen and I have that extra bit of power and pull when I need it on the motorway.

After visiting a few tuners for tuning my mercedes A35. Darren by far blew me away. i had people blaming the cpc module for not noticing any difference in the tuning applied. as soon as Darren applied his tune we took it out on the road, did several pulls. The car made my legs go like jelly! This guy knows his stuff and made my A35 a total animal. Thanks again!

I contacted Darren with an issue I had with my car. it had been mapped by the previous owner. To me it didn't quite feel right. I booked it in for a check up. I received a call 2 hours later, explaining the problem. I picked it up later that afternoon, OMG, its a totally different car, drives so smooth. Thank you so much!!
