To keep or not to keep

I have done a DPF/cat delete. I kept the OEM equipment just incase. I am out of warranty ( past 3 years and past 100k) and I'm tired of moving it around. So the question is should I keep the OEM equipment or sell/toss it.

I was in the same situation and ended up tossing it all. I kept on moving it around and my wife was really starting to get annoyed with that stuff, especially the dpf, being moved here and there. I did think that some day I would need it but I plan on keeping the truck for a long time so I just tossed it.

I would keep it. Find somewhere out of the way to put it.

Keep in mind, in a lot of states, it's the sellers responsibility to make sure the vehicle can pass emissions.

If you have an attic, you've probably got a place to store it.

If you plan on keeping the truck for a really long time, I'd probably send it to a scrap yard or sell it for whatever you can get.

If anyone does plan on tossing their old stuff please keep me in mind. I need 2 studs and nuts knocked out of your old DPF. Dang exhaust shop broke mine and I am still in warranty and may need to reinstall one day.

Thanks

Go down and buy a pully system and attach it to the rafters or ceiling in your garage and put it up there. Other option is hang it on the wall somewhere in the garage. Either case, it's out of the way and still available when/if you need it.

Keep it, as was said you never know when you might have to start testing, and or if you sell the truck, the buyer may have to do an emissions test.
