Question about DPF Delete on Motor with High Miles

I just bought a 08 king ranch 4x4 with 239k with a stock exhaust system. Will adding DPF delete,and EGR delete cause any harm with the truck with it having such high miles? Thanks in advance.

Sometimes a tuner will cause a current issue to pop it's head up once you throw the tuner on, for instance a head gasket issue could be brought out after tuning. Either way I would say its never to late to delete but that's just me.

People say that the DPF/EGR systems kill these motors and that's probably true. Are you just looking for some extra power or better mileage or both? If I was in your shoes, I might just take off the DPF and leave the EGR alone for now, unless you're disabling the EGR via a tuner.

I'd just do the DPF delete and you're set. A lot of people with 6.4s, myself included, don't do a physical DPF delete due to the tuner. I'll do it down the road but I'm still under warranty and the H&S can accomplish ALMOST the same results as a full EGR delete (you still have potential for some ruptures).

You'll be shocked at how much of a difference the DPF delete and tuner make. Enjoy.

Did you mean don't do a physical EGR delete in your second sentence?
