Doc/Cat Clogging Issue

No one has given any real answers whether or not the Cat/Doc will actually clog with a dpf only delete. Only rumored that it will. Is it worth while putting a truck back to stock tuning and running a short regen with the dpf off and the cat/doc on. Is this going to cause a problem running a regen with no dpf on, or is this what the cat/doc needs to be cleaned out, if it actually gets clogged. Just curious
Thanks

My understanding, The cat is upstream of the DPF, so what ever the DPF does, it does not effect the cat. The guy I talked to, said, it was easier to do a cat and dpf delete than just the dpf.

Truck does put out more soot with a tuner on. Prolly would take a while but the soot would eventualy clog it.

08 F-350 CC DRW King Ranch

S&B intake
access bed cover
F450 front fender flares and wheel spacers
full window tint

but the question that still remains is, is there a cat/doc out there that has clogged? Everyone seems to believe it will but no one has ever said if it actually has. Anyone out there with a clogged cat? Just checking

I am curious as well, my personal thought is why do the earlier models have a cat with tuning but we never hear of them being clogged. Can someone please explain the difference and why the 08+ will clog if not removed?

I am running a cat with a dpf delete. I have about 10000 miles and it does fine, no clogs.
