XRT & DPF/CAT delete install

Yesterday I Installed the XRT and dpf/cat delete, Heres how the install went.
First I plugged the tuner into the ECU, its a no brainer H&S walks you through the whole process, No step left me wondering "is that right or??", Very slick tuner. I left the power level at stock and did not start the motor because I hadnt removed the DPF/Cat Yet!!

Next I Got under the truck and dropped the DPF/Cat. it took me three hrs + and was a struggle but nothing that one guy cant do alone. I unplugged the three probes but left the pressure sensor attached when I wrenched off the threaded connector and broke the plastic pipe off the sensor doing it that way . Afterwards I saw that all I needed to do was remove the rubber hose off the connector and continue dropping the DPF/CAT pipes.

Next I started the engine up to make sure all was fine to this point, it was, so I loaded the mild tune (40HP) and took it for a spin around town AND Now 6.4liter tuned trucks are popping up from out of the Blue wanting to get it on off the stop lights. I wasnt able to do much with the little mild tune I was testing so I headed Home and Installed the two piece (bungless) Pipes in about 45minutes, Bolts right on and clamps to the Muffler Pipe.

I dont have any MPG numbers for the four tunes that come with the XRT But I will post them up as I get the readings for each tune.

The XRT is a superior tuner thats for sure. I got the tuner and DPF/Cat delete for under a K$ . What can I say,You bet Im happy

Glad to hear you like the product. We are having great success with it thus far. It seems to hit the spot with the guys going for a free flowing exhaust and a little more HP for those times that you need some extra grunt to make that Cummins next to you at the stop light jealous.......

XRT & DPF/CAT delete install

Sounds good. I just bought a 2009 (new) 6.4L, my first diesel. The dealership had me sign an acknowledgement that if I make and mods to the system that it would void the warranty. Wouldn't that be an issue with what you did?

If I should need warranty work done I would have to return to oem tune and reinstall the DPF/CAT, So yes , doing a DPF/CAT delete and tune is not for the faint of heart when it comes to potential problems requiring repairs under warranty. Tow into dealer from the road somewhere would put me in a spot that I will deal with if it happened, like everyone else who cant hack the Bogus and costly regen process.

Thanks for the write up. If you would, please post follow ups as you have had more time to play. I am almost ready to pull the trigger on the XRT. I have been toying with the idea of mounting the old DFP/CAT pipe under the truck somewhere so if I had a problem on the road I may be able to install it before it hits the dealer.

Current vette: 1954 - currently being restomodded.

That regen setup is a monster pipe!! If you had the facilities to Fab and Mount a carrier of some some sort under there, I might ask you "how much to make me one?? Haha.

Im looking forward to going from 12MPG to 18+ with the HOT 120HP tune, But will know exactly within another week . Ill post it in a new thread when I know.

What I do know is, I Had two quarts of diesel oil diluting my OIL supply within three thousand miles. I had taken the truck to the dealer the day before I started the delete, I asked them to see how much it was Overfilled. Now I can go up to five thousand miles before service without worry about how much fuel is in the oil

The XRT is a no monitoring tuner , all the tunes are very safe so Monitoring is not a necessity. If a Monitor only box ever comes out for cheap, I might Buy it just to look at those temps and pressures.

If you want a fairly cheap moniter, check the Edge Insight, I have one and I like it.

Sorry to bring up a old thread but now that you have had the tuner for a while are you still happy with it? I think I am about ready to pull the trigger next week. Thanks!

The XRT has actually became one of our most popular products as of late, we have actually had tons of feedback on these with mileage and it is the perfect tuner for those not looking for extreme power.
