DPF delete / check engine light

New to the forum and had a couple of questions searched DPF until blue in the face so thought I would just ask and see what response I get.

I have a 2008 F-350 and would like to delete DPF system and tune, however was told by dealer that if do this the Check engine light stays on forever, is this true?

Is there an after market kit and tuner that will not make this happen?

Thanks for the help and advise.

cheap? used sct...
imma be honest. There are three words FAST, RELIABLE, CHEAP

but you can only have 2.

in all fairness, pm cobbsdieselperformance and rudy@dpfdeletekits and ask them for budget dpf delete. i think you can get a single 4", sct with canned tunes, and dpf delete for like 1000-1250(but don't quote me, they aren't my products)

You could put a kit together with sct, and flo-pro exhaust for under a grand. Then you have the option to get custom tunes down the road once you get bit by the bug

Think I will jump in, tired of the 13 mph and the truck regin every 100 miles. The real question is what to get. I do not need to make a drag truck but would like a little more horsepower but nothing stupid, had the superchip in my 99 7.3 and used the middle setting think 50 hp not sure, but that is about all i need usually.

Don't pull lots of stuff but when I need to it is usually heavy.

I know other people have asked in other threads but does anyone have a recommendation for me to research. I have a local guy who is very knowledgable to put everything on and runs his own diesel shop (also drives the DirtyMax in drags).

Now for the wifes question how much louder does this make the truck she likes the quiet of the 6.4 compared to the 7.3 i had. I just want to keep the look of stock no verticle stakes for me.

SCT and a 3.5" DPF/DOC delete pipe. That way you keep the stock exhaust, but get rid of the DPF and DOC. Check out Cobb's Diesel Performance.
