what do i do with the particulate filter?????

just had 2,500 dollars done on the 2004 6.o super duty. and still have no power it was the high pressure oil pump and the low pressure pump. now they say the catalytic convert is clogged--- which on a diesel is the particulate filter. i wanted to know if i pulled it off and bored it out put back on would it run right. i know they have the deleting kit i'm trying to do the home version..

any advice

No the cat is not a particulate filter. The particulate filter (DPF) is on 08s and up. You just have a muffler and cat.

Remove the cat from the exhaust system, insert a good size metal rod or pipe into the body and procede to knock the stuff out. It may take a little bit of hammer action to start breaking it up.

That cat costs too much to destroy it (when or if ever that you may be required to have it inspected). I say pull it and store it just in case. Go to any local Big Truck store....you know the ones that service the big rigs...every town has at least one. Get a section of flexible exhaust pipe and insert it where the cat was....also get rid of that trash can over baffled muffler. All this will open up your exhaust for free'r flow...lowering your EGTs...don't worry about exhaust back-pressure (this aint no gasser). You don't have O2 sensors and crap. The sound will be better and the engine will be happier.

I took a nice big piece of pipe and knocked the crap out of mine when i did my mbrp cat back exhaust. I noticed a 200 degree cooler egt and now just cruising down the road i see around 2-3psi of boost. before the needle on the boost gauge would just sit at 0 unless i got on it or was going up a hill to produce boost. Just make sure if you knock it out to use a HOLLOW peice of pipe not soild cause it will just break up an wad up in the canister, with a hollow pipe it will cut through it a whole lot better.

Not sure where your getting this but your getting info from a moron. Follow what the folks say here. As for your hpop and lpop thats odd I think they might be trying to rip you off.
