    Was it remapped for power, or just to keep the ECU happy without the DPF?

    Without the DPF, there will be some smoke under acceleration, but it should remain as a light haze unless it's been set up for huge power.
    The smoke is a result of more fuel than air, so it could be helped by more boost, or less fuel.

    Hi, thanks for your reply, I had a power remap first which did make it smoke a little then I had the dpf removed last weekend Nd it smokes more which I sort of expected just seeing if this is normal it can leave a bit of a cloud of smoke when I proper go for it, it does go a hell of alot better than before I had all the work done its like a different car and is quite a bit better on fuel too, thanks.

    I've also put an egr bypass on and had that deleted when remapped if that makes my difference.

    Was the remap set up to remove the DPF?
    Changes need to be made when getting rid of the DPF, and it would be highly unusual for a dpf-off file to be done unless you specifically asked for it.

    If that's all fine, you should be able to get your tuner to re-adjust it so it'll be cleaner. I'd expect this to be free, or at least only a minimal cost.
