EGT difference cat and dpf delete vs dpf delete

Does any one know what the difference in egts is with a dpf delete vs a dpf/cat delete? My farrier has a 6.4 now and wants to do a dpf delete and Im wanting him to do the full delete. He likes just the dpf delete because of the ease of carrying it around. let me know if anyone knows a diff in egts. I was guessing around a 200 degree diff.

Tell him it will be easier to unbolt the entire thing rather than unbolting the DPF from the DOC (Cat). I would think that EGT's would be lower with the full delete as well, but I dont know how much lower. And he needs to be aware of the fact that the DOC can plug eventually as well, not just the DPF. Its just smarter all around to do the entire delete. You should be able to talk him into that, especially with how long you have been on the forum...

If I were going to worry about carrying it around with me I would prefer just doing the DPF delete myself. The difference in EGT is probably around 100*F or less not really a big difference.

Could always hollow out the DOC if he wants that part to be left intact.

I wonder if it would throw a code if you did that but had to return the truck to stock and stuck the dpf on with a empy cat.
