Dpf delete only

Just installed dpf delete pipe left the doc on. It was very easy (bought new egt sensor & gasket). It sounds good and seems to run better. I was just concerned about the doc. Will it clog up and how would I know ,if the dpf-r turns off emissions system would I get a cel code?

No it ain't going to clog up and if it wasn't working you would have signs especially if it went into regen

But it can't go into regen mode because the dpf-r tunner turns it off allowing removal of the dpf

Planned on doing the DPF delete next month. I guess I didn't do it soon enough. Truck shut off and would start, then I had to get it towed to the dealership to find out that a sensor isn't covered under warranty. Ended up being $1200 in parts and labor for a dang sensor.. not to mention I had the truck for 3 months now and they couldn't work with me at all. Last time that dealership will get my business..

What sensor? Why would you even pay that? I would have paid the tow bill and told them to shove it. Any of the three dpf sensors are around $60

Beleive me, it was unexpected and I gave em hell. They tried to tell me the code P2002 was a bad DPF system all together. I have an aftermarket intake causing that.. ($2700 to them) The parts manager is probably glad i'll never go back there. They said they ran into corrosion with the sensor which caused an excessive amount of labor. But $1200 my

Sometimes the sensors can be a doozy if the tech stripped the head the dpf has to come off so they can drill and tap it. If you get under the truck you should be able to tell if they had to remove the dpf. The bolts will tell you if they removed it. If not I'd have to go back to the dealership. When replacing the sensor it's pretty easy cuz you get to cut the wire and you can get a box end wrench on it so you don't strip it. I usually just hit them with pb blaster a couple times and then use a good pair of channel locks when I have to reuse the sensors. I did a dpf-r on a 6.4 and got all 3 sensors out of a 170k mile truck without much hassle. I was surprised.

I've been looking into this hidden EPA emissions warranty. Its 8 year/80,000 mile warranty covered by the EPA. I'm wiggling around there to see if I can get anything.

I guess its safe to say if they took it down, putting the delete on will be easy.. (trying to be positive. )
