A little help?

Hey guys I have a question/problem. Yesterday I loaded up my turbo back exhaust to go take it to a local muffler shop to install everything but when I got there they wouldnt even touch it. Turns out that no shops in my town will even think about removing the DPF off newer trucks for fear of the EPA ruining them. This was kind of a shocker being that I live in the Midland/Odessa West Texas area and now im stuck thinking I will have to install it myself. Another thing is assuming I install everything.... how am I going to pass inspection next year? Shouldn't be a big deal because the majority of people on here ride around with straight piped 6.4s as DDs. Just a little concerned.

My first question is, do you have a tuner?

Second question, why wouldn't you install it yourself and save yourself the money it's going to cost to have it done? 90% or more people on here do it themselves with simple hand tools in the garage or driveway. Its not a bad job. There is a writeup on here as well about.

If you are worried about passing inspection (you won't pass without the DPF) you will need to put the DPF back on the truck before doing the inspection.

Here is a link to the write-up,

Yeah I have a Spartan tuner and am running the dpf-on tunes for the time being, and yes thats what I am going to end up doing this weekend if all goes according to plan. I have read the write-up multiple times, and it doesnt seem to bad. I just figured I would try to get someone more experienced to do it right.

Ok thats good to know so I will definitely keep my dpf. For future inspections will I need to also keep my stock turbo downpipe or will the powerstroker67 4" DP be fine?

Thanks

The 4" downpipe that Sean makes will fit with the DPF
