Ebay still sells the mini maxx "race only" that will allow the dpf delete. When I first got my mini maxx I still had my dpf installed. Drove it for about 4 days on the lowest setting and saw no mpg increase but the truck attempted to regen every 50 miles. Just my 2 cents

It works and you can definitely feel the difference but all that extra soot has to go somewhere so you will get regen much more often. I didnt get it every 50 miles but did notice it more often.

I ran the DPF on tunes for about a month before I deleted. I liked the power, however, I didn't beat on it. I regened more often and I hated it. Fuel economy was about the same as stock. I suggest you delete and enjoy.

Just run them and see for yourself then you can always delete down the line.

Like everyone else says. I'm running my race in street right now because my warranty isn't up yet. Definitely a nice power increase, slight but immaterial increase in fuel economy and regents every 130-160 instead of every 250 but I'd never take it off now. The only complaint is the SEZ shift schedule on the mm sucks. It just holds 3 rd gear forever

Has anyone added a performance intake filter system with tuner/DPF....curious to see if it takes care of the increased regens....

Want the performance increase but not legally allowed to remove the DPF/EGR as we have to smog the vehicle every 2 years.

If you have to do an inspection every two years or smog inspection, then just keep the parts... the DPF systems and EGR systems are total and absolute garbage... you will be so happy once you take them off, and when its time to smog it, set a few hours aside for reinstall .. its quite simple
