dpf delete/tuner ?s

Alright guys Im new to the 6.4 game, I just sold my 01 7.3 to buy a 6.4. I found a 09 f-250 6.4 lariat at my dealership 74k miles there asking $31,000 it has the dpf delete and egr delete, flo pro intake elbow, afe intake. Now you can see where it had a tuner at some point and it has methanol but it isn't hooked up. How is the truck running with no tuner?? It feels like is in stock tune. Suggestions?

01 F-250 7.3L DIY Intake, PHP FU, WW, non ebpv outlet, 5" diamond eye turbo back exhaust straight piped, 3" lift 20" XD Rockstars w/ 35" Trail Grapplers.

It can't not be tuned by something. It may be a dpf-r or a mini maxx on the stock setting its tuned to turn off the egr/dpf systems.

So they have tuned it and traded the truck in?

I would bet the guy returned it to stock, traded it in and said screw it let it be the next guys problem.??????

Maybe he pulled the tuner and put a Dpf-r in it???.

CEL on?

I've seen a few trucks here where people have done that. The person trading in the vehicle will take the tuner with them as resale is very good, especially, with off road tuners. They also probably, don't have all the stock parts such as the DPF to put back on as scrappers will pay for those too. Putting it back to stock is time consuming and costly if the stock parts are gone and if a person is trading it in, they figure it's not worth their time. Granted, I've also seen trucks where the tuner is sitting in the sale's manager's office for safe keeping/theft deterrent. I'd ask if there's a tuner kicking around. The salesman might not know. Ask him to ask the person who took it in on trade.

If it doesn't have a tuner but has all the mods, just buy a tuner and slap it on there. But I would use the fact that it's modded and needs a tuner as leverage to negotiate a lower sale price. They are going to have a hard time selling that truck.

The truck would drive like a complete turd with out a tuner turning off the dpf and egr.

Finally from a phone that fits my hands!

Ehh I wouldn't say that. I drove mine for over 15 miles deleted on stock programming and it drove fine. I didn't do this because I wanted to though but don't expect to test drive it and it be completely sluggish

Thinking about getting rid of the stock 6.7 turbo?
Check this out... and research before buying

If the EGR is deleted, it has a tune. It would go into limp mode immediately if it had the stock file loaded. Little different for the DPF delete with a stock file as the truck has to attempt a regeneration for it limp.
