dpf dilema

Hey guys im pretty new to the forum, i bought a new to me 08 f250 powerstroke last year and am trying to hollow out a dpf and cant seem to get through it. i bought a junkyard dpf/doc for 150$ and it was easy goin through the cat but the dpf is a diffrent animal. i tried a concrete bit, 3in hole saw bit, and even the old sledge and crowbar, and im barely through it. if theres anybody that has done this please help me out. I know alot of you are gonna say just but a delete pipe on there and be done. but i have already been stoped in arizona for equipment check so that is not and option. thanks alot

Hammer drill or an air hammer should get through it.

Just keep at it. If you have a sledge hammer and crow bar, you have all the tools required. Just go out there and get MAD at it, like it said something about your mother, because remember kids, violence fixes everything.

you could cut it in 2 and then weld it back together but might look suspicious

Once you have drilled as many holes as you can. Take a steel conduit pipe, about 1in, sharpen the inside end with a counter sink then start hammering it through. Try to get it through the fibrous membranes that are criss crossed throughout the material.

Should start breaking up after a bit. The trick is to make sure your drilled holes and then your subsequent holes with the pipe go all the way through the material.
