Ok will give that a go tomorrow as I just found out the wrecker who I thought had one now doesn't so I may be up for an after market one, perhaps on one the links BruceandBobbi sent.

Alternatively I might just bite the bullet and give the delete pipe a go now and hope the codes clear with my my tool. Will try just looping pressure pipes together and hope for the best.

The only drama going down both of these avenues is I tied for a fair while today to remove the existing temp probe and pressure tubes.

There is no way the pressure tubes are coming out as too heavily corroded. This means with a new DPF I'll need to source them too from Mitsubishi or find a Instrument tech with some 1/4 tubing and gyrolock compression fittings.

For both the delete pipe and the new DPF I'll probably be up for a new temp probe. No idea of the cost and with COVID probably a long wait.

Leaning towards the delete pipe and perhaps investigating getting my DPF looked at by a specialist to see if totally stuffed.

I think its just safer to stick in a secondhand one that is currently working then replace with a delete pipe asap.
Using a jet wash you WILL only get a low flow through the DPF. The first time I washed one wash unsure if it was ok. But that is fine. But a very small trickle would perhaps mean a blockage. I have always washed out DPFs with success, but have never had to try on an NS yes.

I put a delete pipe on mine 10000kms ago and bypassed the pressure tubes at the source. No issues till now and love it. It's an hour job but I have a hoist at home.

I'm at the point of making that decision now. Very hard to get stock of aftermarket DPFs at the moment and given it will need to come from the eastern states it is still 2-3 weeks away.

Plus then there is the hassle of getting new pressure tubes made up (min were damaged getting them off the old DPF) and transfering the temp sensor accross.

With the delete pipe I can just loop the pressure hose, and replace the temp sensors with resisters (when I finally work out if it is 330 ohms or 390 ohms), so once I have the pipe a lot quicker to get back on the road.

Only issue is resale. I'm likely to have to sell the car soon (job loss) and selling one without a DPF could be an issue, especially without a working one as a replacement.
