Black Maxx DPF On

I have been interested in getting a tuner for quite some time. I am interested in getting the Black Maxx and running the DPF on tunes for a while at least. Looking for feedback from anyone running the DPF on tunes.

Unfortunately I think your going to hear crickets on this one, I understand the want to keep your warrenty, but when the only things that really give these trucks warranty issues are the items that you will delete with a race tuner it doesnt concern me, or most people too much. I would just recommend getting the Maxx with the dpf delete and not looking back. The mileage increase is incredible as well as the power.

Check out my thread on a review of the Black Maxx.

You will see some power improvement, but you wont see any MPG improvement. Also by keeping the dpf on there you will still have potential oil dilution issues. I would say do the black max and take the DPF off. They are easy to put back on if you ever have issues. Also if you are having concerns with voiding your warranty, by adding the tuner you already have voided it, so might as well do it right thing and take the darn thing off.

I ran with the DPF tunes for about 2 weeks, gotta say I didn't really care for them. The shifting just didn't seem quite right, it would seem to miss shifts when you really got on it hard. Also the gas mileage was actually quite a bit worse, I went from 14mpg to 9, and that was trying to get good mileage. Also it still smokes quite a bit, which I cannot imagine is good for the DPF or cat. Lastly my truck would not go into dpf regen unless I returned it to stock.
So all in all I'd have to say it doesn't look like it would be good for the truck in the long run, and if you had to take it in for work, I'm sure they would be able to notice with the amount of soot build up in the dpf/cat making it pointless if you are doing it to try to keep your warranty.

^I totally agree with this, while I never ran any DPF on tunes, I can't imagine them being good for the DPF/CAT.
