Hello,

I work for a DPF manufacturer and I wanted to inform Sprinter owners that an aftermarket DPF is now available. DCL is manufacturing an aftermarket DPF replacement with a modular design feature so that the DPF can be easily accessed for cleaning & maintenance (See attached drawing). It is a replacement for Dodge p/n 68011959AA or Mercedes/Freightliner # A9064901592.

Please feel free to contact me if you would like more information or go to our website www.dieselfilters.com.

Thanks,
Dave Jerman

Can you provide a Sprinter DPF canister minus the filter element on a special order basis?

Sorry, can't supply the canister without the DPF/filter element.

What is your price for the Sprinter DPF? About time someone came out with a DPF that has a removable/replaceable element:thumbup:

Is it accurate to assume that it is EPA/CARB certified?

DCL has CARB verifications for some retrofit DPF products but there currently is any CARB/EPA certification or protocol for OEM replacement diesel particulate filters. DCL's aftermarket DPFs are manufactured as an equivalent replacement to meet and/or exceed the OEM specifications and would pass an emission test...it also comes with a one-year limited warranty. You can contact me directly if you want some more details and pricing.

Here is a link to a government website and an excerpt from the EPA Clean Air Act (CAA):

http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/USCODE-2008-title42/pdf/USCODE-2008-title42-chap85.pdf

Clean Air Act Section 7522 - Prohibited acts

No action with respect to any device or
element of design referred to in paragraph (3)
shall be treated as a prohibited act under that
paragraph if (i) the action is for the purpose of
repair or replacement of the device or element

“The Clean Air Act (Act) prohibits any person from removing or rendering inoperative any device or element of design installed on a certified diesel engine (“tampering”). EPA's enforcement of this provision has been limited to modifications of an emission-certified vehicle or engine configuration that result in an increase in emissions. Any person who adds a new part or alters any original part of the certified configuration violates the tampering provisions unless there is a reasonable basis to believe that emissions do not increase.”

I like that, as long as I believe it, it is OK. :drool:

I don't see how this DPF will even fit an NCV3 with the 3.0L V6. The DPF is in the downpipe, not the lower exhaust.

On the 2007-2009 models (prior to SCR) the DPF is in the lower exhaust system.

Ah, I see...I've only worked on 2010+ sprinters. :thumbup:

So that is not the cat coming of of the header, but the DPF, I thought the cat had to be first to fire things up?

What are all the cans on the 2010+ exhaust, starting from the header?

What about the Mercedes 2011 Sprinter with the 3.0? I think those have a DEF tank. Does your part fit those?
