Pulling the dpf off like that without a tuner will put the truck into regen. That means you will have raw fuel puring out the exhaust and then down the truck and road.
How much I do not know.
What you really need to do is take it in for a diagnostics.
They can command the turbos and check the pressures and the DPF as well.
That would be the best way to determine the issue.
Just my 2 cents.
We were figuring if you just pulled the DPF back from the forward part of the exhaust a little it would still get enough heat to not go into regen, think that will work? The only problem is he can't get it to a place to check easily, it's around 600 miles to the nearest place he said.

OK, that explains the 600 mi to the dealer.
Knowing the fuel prices in Europe, I don't know how you guys can afford one of these trucks. Our cost is about a dollar per liter...I'm sure it's a lot higher there. I imagine that the purchase price is a bit higher, too. And except for the autobahn, I'd think would it be difficult to drive it on the narrow roads.
