To Void Or Not To Void?

I am in the same boat, but I am VERY close to pulling the trigger on a spartan kit. Everything I read, the stock setup seems to cause more problems than the spartan. I feel I have less of a chance of a problem with a tuner/delete.

Getting rid of the DPF and adding the Spartan tuner would be the best thing you could ever do for your truck!

I have 32 thousand miles on the truck now. I'm not really worried bout the warrantee because spartans are hard to trace but I am worried about the dpf isn't it really illeagal? And how risky is it to drive around with it off? Thanks guys

Would do it in a heartbeat if I were you (never did on my truck not understanding what was to come back in Sept. 07'). Pull the trigger and dont look back.

most dealers will not know you had one if you put the stick file in before and work. but a real good tech can tell just by digging a little deaper. I would go to diff dealers and ask if they are mod friendly some are some aren't

Negative. You can't run the DPF with a DPF delete tune. We have 4 DPF on tunes, but it will still regen.
