Another DPF/Cat delete question

I am looking at extended warrantys and was wondering which is easier to change back to stock if warranty work is needed? Would you go with the dpf delete only or is it easier to just remove and replace the dpf/cat all at once? I've been laying under there for an hour trying to figure out which would be easier. Either way, it sure looks heavy.

It's easier to change the dpf/doc together. If you do just the dpf delete, it is easier for ford to tell also.

Is that because of the evidence left behind from unbolting the two?

Replacing the DPF/Cat together is MUCH easier than just the DPF. The reason is you are just unbolting the 2 bolt ball and socket flange at the down pipe and the slip joint after the DPF. If you just do the DPF, you have to remove the DPF from the cat which is a 7 bolt connection and its a pain to do.

Its way easier to do them both.
The first time you do it it may take an hour or two but after a couple of times it a 30 minute job.

DPF/DOC together. A lot of times if you just do the DPF delete, you have to replace the gasket between the DPF and DOC.
