The End All, Be All DPF thread

Have searched the forums up and down, but couldn't find enough info to satisfy my thirst for knowledge regarding the DPF on our trucks. So here's what I want out of my 6.0

-Fuel Economy
-Power
-Lower EGTs
-Longevity

What I DON'T want (if I delete the DPF)

-Tons of black smoke when I accelerate
-Any reliability issues
-Sacrifices in longevity for the sake of power


So, with the goals listed above, would you guys reccommend deleting the DPF or keeping it?

Feel free to list the characteristics of a 6.0 with the DPF vs. without the DPF

No DPF on a 6.0, that's a 6.4 thing (08 and up trucks). There is a catalytic convertor that won't affect anything if you remove it

Ford Makes It, International Shakes It, Casserly Fuels It, KC Turbo Spools It, SCT Tunes It, and Trucks Unlimited keeps her Rockin the Road

Ford already deleted the dpf on the 6.0 from the factory..... Get a 4" exaust delete the cat, get gauges even if you don't have a tuner because the 6.0 will get to hot towing heavy egt wise and there is no safety ecept when the oild or coolant gets to hot. Net delete the egr system add a coolant filter and a bypass oil cooler. Lastly change your filters regularly and use some kind of injector lube in the fuel. That would address all the longivity issues. For the best mpg use good driving manners and a light rt foot. This will do more than any tuner will.
