Talking Pulled the trigger

Well I did it, I purchased Mod’s. I’m sick of the fuel dilation and the damage that it may be causing to the engine. I purchased my Mod’s From Nate at Performance Truck Products. He was great and answered all my questions that I had at the time; I would buy from them again and will. Thanks Performance Truck products!
Here is the list of mod’s:
H&S Black max
4” flo-pro down pipe back exhaust w/o muffler
S&B CAI, dry filter
Nitto Terra Grapple AT 275-65 20 (purchased from Discount tire Direct)

I cant wait to get it all installed when I get a chance! I have a few questions;

Do you have to run the EGR valve off function? If I do what are the advantages of doing so? What happens if I leave the EGR on and don’t turn it off? Does anyone have advice on removing old exhaust from DPF back off without cutting? I’m sure I may have more question when things start to come together. Thank you for the responses!!

I'd offer to help, but you are a bit far away from me.

Congrats on the purchase.

I left my EGR on the truck. I do believe the H&S tunes actually cycle the EGR at idle to ensure that it doesn't get gunked up over time.

as far as removing your DPF there are a lot of threads on that but I'll give you quick run down.
crawl under your truck and look where your downpipe and dpf meet there are two bolts there that you'll need to remove and there are I believe 3 or 4 sensors sorry its been about 2.5 years since I've done mine. what I did which was pretty easy is unclip the sensors from the wiring and remove the sensors when you have the dpf off the truck. once you have the sensors unplugged unbolt the two bolts at the down pipe and loosen up all exhaust clamps that connects the dpf and and the back portion that goes over your rear axle. slide the two parts apart and then spray some wd-40 on the exhaust hangers to make removing them easier and then your done removing your dpf exhaust.
Now bolt up your new exhaust since H&S doesnt use the sensors leave them in the dpf. hook your programmer to your obdII port and follow the instructions on how to load the tune to your truck and you should be done. total time for all this should be about 2 hours if you work pretty slow.

One tool that works great for pulling the pipes apart and back together is a ratchet strap. Jacking the body up using the tow hitch and removing the shock and tire from the passenger side will help.

The H&S tune shuts off the EGR and will not cycle it at idle. I had Mike at Kem Performance build a 75HP tune that will cycle the EGR at idle. At this time when you load the Kem tune, that is the only one on the tuner. There is a firmware in the making that will add the H&S tunes back into the tuner.

You won't regret the buy. Have fun...................

I was told the H&S does cycle EGR at start up?

With the H&S, you do not need to remove the sensors from the DPF pipe. I left mine in to ensure they don't get damaged.
