Question High Performance / High Flow DPF?

I have been having a hard time falling in love with my 2010 6.4 I love the truck overall, but the emissions are a bust (We all know that). This is the first diesel I have owned that is not modded. I have almost pulled the trigger a few times and deleted the DPF.....Only to chicken out because of the warranty and the emission testing issues.

It is safe to say that most of us will not keep buying pre 2007 trucks as our daily drivers....I mean they are already 5 models years old. For a toy, or second truck sure, but not for daily driving. I / we want the latest options and goodies.

So here is my question....Does anyone make or plan on making a High Performance / High Flow DPF? In the early 1980's our cars suffered from emissions for years....then the aftermarket companies started to figure things out. I would love to run clean and fast. If this has been covered before, I'm sorry, but I searched high and low and there was nothing about High Performance / High Flow DPF(s)?

That would be interesting to see, a high-flow DPF.

The biggest hurdle would be getting the EPA and DOT to buy off on it being emissions compliant. Big IF, kinda like getting a CARB certification.

It is a great idea though, I might even pick up a 6.4 if something like this becomes available.

I hear you, but I remember when we were taking the cats off of our Mustangs, now you can buy high flow cats. With emissions here to stay there will be a market for a high flow DPF. Right now my 2003 5.9 Cummins is a lot like my old 1970 Chevelle. Awesome, but dated. More people drive current vehilces with current technology. I want to run clean and fast.

I want a HIGH FLOW DPF dammit. LOL

At one time I believe ATS was talking about making one. Don't know what every happened with it. Most likely it was too expensive and with everyone buying delete kits it was probably tossed aside.

You are correct, I have the issue of Diesel Power where ATS was testing it. However, they have nothing on thier website, and when I called them they denied ever working on one. I even scanned the article and e-mailed it to them....and of course they never replied.

Regardless, I have to believe the person(s) who can make it work, will hit the lottery. A high performance / high flow DPF is the missing link to modern diesel performance. There are a lot of DPF trucks on the road and more to come.

It really dont matter, If you happen to find a high performance DPF to replace your stock Ford DPF, it will still void your warranty. So if you are going to void the warranty might as well go all out and get a full DPF delete and tuner.

Gutting the DPF sounds like a pretty darn good idea to me. Definintely what I would do if I live in California.

The problem with gutting the DPF, is that if you ever need warranty work done, you dont have a good DPF to work with anymore. Because you know ford is going to pull the DPF and look at it. The price tag of a new DPF is not cheap....
