Thumbs up DPF-R Product review

Ok guys I have installed a DPF/Cat 4'' pipe from MBRP, S&B Stage 2 Cold Air Intake and a DPF-R plus 70HP Economy tune on my 2010' CC F250 w/ 6.4L. The Entire cost of the project including an EGR delete kit and new intake elbow that isn't installed is around 1200.00 bucks. The difference in my truck today VS yesterday is un-freakin believable!!! The power given from the 70 HP tune far exceeds what I was expecting. The DPF delete pipe I used has the bungs on it for the sensors to go back in the pipe as with this program tune it requires the sensors to be connected but not in the pipe, so , I figured why not put them back in the pipe. I have no error codes and haven't noticed any issues with the truck so far. I do like the fact that the programmer was super easy to install and also is equipped with a code reader and emergency restore feature.This "programmer" cost 445. with the 70 hp tune, you can buy the dpf delete with out the tune for about 250. It also clear's codes for EGR delete which it is recommended that you do the EGR delete with the Tuner built in one. So in the end If you are looking for a decent amount of power and don't want to spend several thousand dollars I believe this to be the way to go. I hope this helps some of you guys that are on the fence about Modifying your trucks because of money issues.

NREMT,

Thanks for the review. Once you run the tuner for awhile, let us know what mileage gains you're seeing if any.

Thanks again.

DPF-R Product review

Would you post links of where you got your stuff? I've been trying to research the DPF-R stuff as there have been lots of questions on it recently. I believe it might be the best option for guys who want to stay at or near stock power levels, but once you decide to stack tuners to get the +200-300HP tunes, cost is getting mighty close to he stand alone Spartans or SCTs with custom gearhead or innovative tunes.

I know my roommate (albeit he had a 6.7 cummins) is trying to find an option similar to yours (doesn't need or want the extra power), but doesn't want to spend the cash on a H&S.

I have the DPF-R with the 70 horse tune. I gotta say, I am not overwhelmed by it. I notice the extra power in 5th gear, but nowhere else unless I absolutely mash the throttle. Dunno if there is something wrong with my rig or what... If this thing had the power in 1st -4th that it has in 5th I would be ecstatic. I also only gained about 1 mpg, if that.

wow soundmandave did u do air filter upgrade? idk if that makes a big difference but in my truck the dpf-r programmer really made a huge difference in my truck, alot faster throttle response, and turbo is making much more boost. I havnt run a larger tune so I dont really have much to compare by but for me it was difference as night and day.

Aggie I purchased all of my stuff from XDP. Xtreme Diesel Performance - XDP Diesel Power Performance Parts great customer service and was fast to answer any questions also if you use diesel10 at check out save 10 percent on most items.
