Horsepower gain with egr and PDF delete

I bought an 09 f 350 last week. I am curious what kind of horsepower and torque I can get with deleting my egr and dpf, and putting in a new exhaust. Thanks!

I don't think there are any appreciable power gains to be had with deleting your EGR, however you'll be removing a sometimes problematic part on these trucks so your reliability is bound to improve. As far as DPF deleting, power wise the possibilities are somewhat endless.

The delete itself wont gain you anything except for maybe some lower EGT's, but with the delete you have to run a tuner to tell the trucks computer to not s$%# the bed when it realizes it doesn't have a DPF filter on it. Your power gains will come with what type of tuner you select, and furthermore with the level of power you choose to have your truck tuned to.

You can delete the DPF, run a tuner, and still run stock power level but whats the fun in that? Most of the reputable tuners will allow you to add power reliably, but you have to be responsible (unless your pockets are deeper than mine for repairs).

Some of the best tuners are:

Spartan Phalanx DashDaQ (excellent tunes, lots of power if you want it, but no tune changes on the fly)

H&S Mini Maxx (also excellent tunes, ability to shift on the fly)

SCT Live Wire (ability to run tunes just like the above, however the screen or heads up display isn't very easy on the eyes. functionality is just fine though)

I personally run a Spartan on a 250hp tune, with a S&B intake, and Diamond Eye 4" Downpipe back exhaust and love it. Mileage is far better than stock, the power is incredible and you're improving the long term durability of your truck when you get rid of that emissions garbage!

Like Matt said, the power comes from the tuner that you will have to run in order to keep the computer from going into limp mode.

I run the H&S MiniMax on my truck. I would say I love it, but I have yet to drive it with the tuner and all the deletes. My wife is driving it while I'm in Afghanistan, and I make her leave it on stock power with the deleted settings. I'm one of those "non-fun" people Matt is talking about. Ha Ha.

Regardless, I did it for the reliability. After you see what the emmisions crap will do to your reliability, you'll never regret doing it.

Deleted with a good tuner like was listed above you are looking to be in the 500-600hp range depending on the tune.

Eeww. If you're talking in terms of a warranty, probably not. Unfortunately. BUT....... the DPF can be put back on and the tuning returned to stock if need be for work.

Ya if you are worried about warranty you could just do a minimaxx and a dpf/doc delete.
