Banks, I believe do not have DPF off tunes. Soooo a DPF on race tune, might work for awhile till the DPF fills up and the pan is full of fuel from all the regens.

Posted this in your other trhead with same title.

Yeah, they haven't released them yet on the Ford. There are DPF friendly tunes as well as DPF off tunes which require all the signatures and a new pipe. Tuner plugs into OBD port to upload tunes and then sits in your desk drawer or whatever the rest of the time. You can use the iQ to monitor all functionality and if you have the Six-Gun, its highly recommended that you run it on Lvl1 (stock setting) so that you aren't piggy backing tunes. Tuner allows you to turn off EGR, Regen, etc..

They are also selling 5in exhaust systems if people are interested.

This does and does not surprise me. With all the talk about making power clean and putting down all the other people that did dpf deletes or the scare tactics then they are following what makes the money. I figured they would sooner or later.

I like the idea. I don't know anything about the DPF off tunes like hp #'s and trans tuning. But I know i like the iQ for gauges. Wish it could be used universally with other tuners/programmers.

I remember smotrs saying "something" new was coming. Not his exact words. But he could not spill the beans, so to say. I wonder if this was it? I was thinking it was a high performance DPF/CAT, being that Banks seemed to be all for DPF on tuning. I don't know just thinking out loud.

it's cool to see Banks do this, but i think they had to. Spartan, H&S, and Sct were out selling them on dpf trucks. So to stay in the game something had to change for them.
