Yes you need a tuner if you are going to delete the dpf. You might as well delete the cat while you are under there. I would go with either the Mini Maxx or Spartan tuners. I absolutely love my shift on the fly Mini Maxx. You also need to get a cai if you are going to run any of the higher hp tunes.

Soon as you remove the DPF you will have more smoke in certain situations. If that's what your looking for then expect people to give you grief regarding it. You can limit the amount of fuel being dumped to a certain extent with various settings, but it will still smoke a bit now and then. You can also limit the amount of smoke by not mashing the pedal.

And as mentioned, you definitely need a tuner before starting the vehicle with the DPF removed.

You will need a tuner if you take the dpf off. Either go with spartan or H&S. It wont smoke if you put the tuner on stock but if you run high tunes you will get smoke if you get on it.

You will roll coal with the higher tunes.....That used to be cool, but these days we are all living on borrowed time with the EPA and emmisions. So I / we try to keep it to a minimum. Driving habits can be changed to limit the amount of smoke you roll. There is a time and a place for it....LOL. My old 5.9 used to roll coal like freight train. Man those were the good old diesel days.

Like others have said, a tuner is necessary in order to get rid of the DPF. I suggest looking into the H&S XRT Pro or even better, the H&S Mini Maxx. Check out our site for more info and pricing, feel free to shoot me an email if you have any questions.
