DPF sensors

dont know to much about the 6.4s, as ive never had my hands on one but from everything ive read if you delete the DPF or unplug the sensors its goes into regen mode more often, right? im in a debate on another forum with a guy thats says unplugging or taking the DPF off gains a ton of MPG and that no tuner is needed. info please?

You cannot unplug the sensors unless you run an H&S Blackmaxx. If you remove the DPF, you have to install a tuner. Unless you try to run a DPF-R module, but you should never use one of those on a ford, it will still regen.

Ford has calibrations that they could possibly install to work with a DPF Delete, but good luck getting them. But you have to remove, not unplug. Otherwise it will clog up.

They would stop up and quit running at about 400 miles! Ask your buddy why he is no longer a Ford dealership employee......

If you unplug the sensors, your truck will shut down.
