Yes, you will require a tuner to disable the regen functionality or you'll end up throwing codes and eventually go into limp mode.

A down pipe back exhaust will delete the DPF and cat which if not properly tuned, will throw codes. Some trucks wont even start up again once turned off and these codes are present.

If you want to run a down pipe back exhaust, I suggest taking a look at H&S Performance Tuners or the Spartan Phalanx.

If you want to run an exhaust and not have to worry about codes or deleting the DPF/Cat, go with a DPF Back exhaust kit.
