Just wondering.

Does any one make a strait pipe that looks like a DPF or could you hallow out a DPF when doing a delete and tune so that it looks like it is still there. What I would like to do is a full exhaust strait pipe yet I want it to appear completely stock retaining the DPF and the muffler for visual purposes.

Thanks for any feedback.

Yes you can hollow out your DPF. Julian was the first one to do it with his 6.4

FYI if you do need it for anything like warranty work though those suckers are 2500 bucks

Couldnt you just keep the old exhaust and if something happens you could allways put it back on? If its because of the state you live in you could get it looked over first then put aftermarket on. One reason i like KS is all they check is VIN

I have thought about that. As a Mechanic I always notice instantly when someone has been messing around with stuff before it is brought to me. I am sure that the mechanics at the dealership notice this stuff too.
