Question on cat delete.

I talked to a shop today that was pushing Black Maxx pretty hard. He said to just delete DPF and leave cat on. What is the advantage or disadvantage of doing this? I was understanding that it was better to take them both off.

I see no advantage to leaving it on. It is illegal to remove the DPF so leaving the cat on wouldn't save you any trouble I don't think.

That's what I was thinking too. He said that without it, the turbo wouldn't spin up as fast. It looks to me like the less backpressure you have on the turbo, the easier it will spin.

Trust me the turbos spool up plenty fast enough with it off. Not sure they would spool any faster with it on anyway. Tuner, DPF/DOC delete and intake and these trucks are crazy fast.

He either has no idea what he is talking about or doesnt have access to proper delete pipes.

There is no real reason to leave the CAT on other than its cheaper to buy the pipe. We always recommend doing them both.

That's what I had planned. I thought if he was reasonable enough I would let him do it, but it was going to run $2100 so I will install it myself.

Definitely a good plan. It's not a bad driveway/garage install to tackle. It will save you a lot of money doing it yourself.
