Those comments, as mentioned, are quite dated and I do not believe they are valid any longer, as much has changed since then.
At the time I bought my Steinbauer (which is still the setup I currently have) there were very few, if any reliable options for doing a remap. Now it is not a challenge to get a Canter remap; well, here in Australia.
I should also add that the FG84/FG140 does not have a DPF, so comparing problems with an Isuzu remap and DFP delete is not really comparing apples with apples.
As I eluded to initially, finding someone with experience with this remap process in the US is probably your greatest challenge.
In a worst case scenario, you could always go down the Steinbauer chip route, as I know the model I have on my FG84 is compatible with the FG140. You would probably have to source one from here, as the mapping was done by the Steinbauer importer/dealer in Queensland and I do not believe that model is available outside of Australia.
I have not seen him on this forum for a while now, but westyss has had one fitted to his truck for many years now, so you could PM him if you wanted real, first hand feedback.
My 2010 has a DPF filter that I would love to eliminate. would require a remapping ? I am in contact with steinbauer to see the cost and availability of their solution. Appreciate the help and guidance
I must admit to not being aware that the FG140 has a DPF. That's a bummer, because the FG84 does not have one. The FG84 is basically the same truck as the FG140.
I have no first hand experience with DPFs, but fully expect that the ECU would throw error codes if you simply tried to remove/bypass it, so a DPF delete via the ECU may be your only option, if that is the route you want to take.
As I mentioned previously, finding someone with the skills to do a remap on your side of the planet may be the challenge.
Some would argue that a chip is not as good as a remap, but the Steinbauer should give you some more power and it will not cause error codes. I should add that the power difference with the chip is definitely noticeable.
If purchased from here, the cost would be under a grand, given that we have a pretty weak dollar at the moment.
