Truck Going to Dealer After DPF Delete, What to Clean

So next week my truck is going to the dealer for a noisy rear end and a turbo bearing that is starting to make noise. I'm going to put my DPF back on this weekend and set the tune back to stock but what else needs to be done to hide the DPF delete / Tuner?

I assume I should clean the exhaust tip that is black, anyone have any tips for this? Anything that is a tell tell sign of a DPF Delete / Tuner that I should take care of?

Nothing in the ECM will show it has been tuned. Just make the truck completely STOCK, and you will be good to go.

I was curious about this as well. I am probably going to buy a 2010 6.4 and was wondering how hard it would be to put it back to stock if I have any warranty work?

How hard is it to take the DPF off and put it back on?

The difficult part is the weight of it and getting the sensors out without breaking them. After a few times it becomes a lot more simple. Having a buddy around for the job is recommended.

How heavy is it? How much time to take off and reinstall? Thanks!

The DPF probably weighs a good 50 pounds or at least laying on your back in the driveway and doing it by yourself it feels like 200 pounds.

Hopefully a guy wouldn't have to reinstall it to many times for warranty work.

I have not had to put my dpf back on (and hope that I never do), but I took the dpf and doc off together by myself, and had no problem at all. Not saying I am he-man, but a few well placed ratchet straps make all the difference!

I would clean the exhaust tips as far in as you can in case the dealer is looking. I don't think stock mode would make the inside of the tips black.

It's a piece of cake to change the DPF. The hardest part of the whole install and de-install is snaking in the rear tailpipe. The best way is to drop the spare tire and take the heat shield off.

Mine had soot stock, so I wouldn't worry about it.
