Hello everyone, and Roberto & Jess specially,

Regarding this post here: http://panamericanaforum.org/index.php?id=23198

This part gave us pause:

We are aware that on a Euro 5 vehicle several changes have to be made for driving
at high altitudes (DPF must be safely removed and the control unit reprogrammed).

We are considering buying a motorhome based on an Euro-V diesel (a Peugeot Boxer with a 2014 110 HP 2.2 HDi engine) which as far as we've been able to determine via [1] and [2], is either a Ford Duratorq "Puma" ZSD-422, *or* a PSA DW12 -- the information is somewhat contradictory. But anyway, we're pretty sure it's an Euro V engine.

The seller has assured us he had no issues going through the high-altitude Andes passes; he mentioned the Passo de Jama specifically, which we know is over 4000m.

Is this correct, and is that engine specifically exempt from such high-altitude issues? Or is the seller possibly being less than entirely truthful?

(sorry for posting in English when the post we're mentioning was in German -- but our German is non-existent, and we barely trust Google Translate not to mess things up too much for our *reading* -- no chance we would trust it with translating our writing)

Thanks in advance for your clarifications,
Du & Nica.
