XRT Pro with CAT/DPF Delete on Mild???

Hello all,

New to site and new to FORD. Sold Duramax because of Goverment Motors Bailout and now driving a 2008 powerstroke. I would really like to delete the cat and dpf, i'm off road a lot in forests and fields and it's only a matter of time before regen catches something on fire. I tow a lot, carry lot's of weight in the bed, and work out of this truck everyday. Will an h&s xrt pro set on mild be safe to "set and forget" or do I need to be concerned that the pro doesn't have any saftey features built in???

Thank you in advance for any insights!

Anytime you are towing with a tuned truck it is a good idea to get a set of guages. The xrt pro on mild probably wont give you really high EGT's but you never know. A little bit of a grade and some good weight on the truck will still probably yield high EGT's. Getting a full black max, or mini max will allow you to have the safety features just for a piece of mind. If you dont want to be watching your guages all the time, just set your safety points a little lower and you wont have to watch.

Thanks for the insight, It's just hard to not pull the trigger on the pro from a pricing standpoint, but maybe a few hundred extra is worth all the saftey features. I just don't really want anything to "show" whats going on with the tunes in the truck, dealer is kinda wierd about it sometimes.....pro isn't a look at me I'm tuned setup ya know.

The mini is so small you could hide it anywhere. Plus you dont have to keep it plugged in if you do.t want too.

It really easy to take all the stuff off the truck when you go into the dealer. The dash monitor isnt going to concern them as much as the DPF delete pipe will.

The weird thing is they actually don't mind the DPF delete but get all sorts of worked up over tuners, programmers, ect. There are enough Farmers and Ranchers around this area they understand the concerns of fire dangers assosiated with these vehicles....that's the only reason I was leaning towards pro, but I guess I didn't realize you could run with/out the mini installed?? So when I go to the dealer for service I can leave the pipe, and tune installed but the monitor can come out? Am I understanding that correctly?

Thanks again!

Yes you only need the mini installed to change a tune.

And in order to have the saftey features active it must be installed too correct? Sorry for the green horn questions. Have never been around H&S, only edge with attitude. Speaking of which, this truck came with the regular edge with attitude monitor, not the race one that turns off dpf regen. Is there any way that you can run the edge monitor or something just to keep track of EGT's and not run edge tunning?? Dealer would still be able to see it but maybe I could convince them it's just for keeping track of exhaust temp if that's even possible. Not sure if you can stack an edge with xrt pro and use pro tunning??

In Oregon, pretty good dealership, service manager is just very worried about "Ford" seeing aftermarket tunning and voiding warranty. But again, they aren't bothered by dpf deletes. hahah.
