Gutted CAT/DPF

Has any one gutted a CAT/DPF instead of purchasing a delete pipe? Any issues?

Does anyone want to sell their CAT/DPF? I would probably keep mine till my warranty is up, but someone out there may need the garage space. PM if you do.

I have gutted the DPF, I did it because I had been pulled over by a MA State Trooper for a spot check for all factory emmission components. I was let off because I am a Police officer, but I bought one and gutted it. It works perfectly. My only suggestion is to use a hammer drill with a long enough concrete bit, it is so much easier that way.

Why not I guess, and I am pretty sure spartan will ship you one if you need one for warranty work, it's just on your dime for shipping, or you can find someone close that will let you borrow theirs. I think the best thing to do would be to gut it out and run a piece of exhaust pipe through the center of it.

Would you need to run a pipe through it, or could you just hollow it out?

Well you wouldn't HAVE to do it, but I think it would be the best idea so you have the best flow and smooth exhaust all the way through.

I don't have any pics, but google ford dpf for images and you will find some. The small exhaust canister is the CAT and the larger exhaust canister is the DPF. After the exhaust pipe comes down off the motor, the CAT is in front of the DPF.
