Dpf delete options.

Recently moved to a new area and bought a 6.4. Truck is completely stock now and I wanted to do egr/dpf deletes, intake and a dp back exaust with a spartan programmer. Well I recently found out that I now live in an e-check county and have to pass emissions check ever year to renew my plates. My thought was to make it simple, just do everything as planned. But only remove the dpf and leave the rest of the factory exaust. Then once a year replace dpf and remove tuner. Just was curious of anyone has ran a factory exaust with just a dpf delete. How did it effect fuel mileage, performance, etc. thanks guys.

I would just buy a race pipe, remove CAT/DPF in one piece. Leave sensors hanging (zip tied) then we renew time comes around remove 2 bolts and loosen the back clamp near muffler and put the emissions junk back in. The hardest part of the whole process is making sure you don't booger up the 13mm nut that screw the sensors in the dpf. PB blaster is your friend.

Yes, tuner can turn off egr but coolant still flows thru them. To stop that and leave them in place you would need block off plates.

Sam Hain

then one more thing not trying to hijack. is it worth the effort to remove both the dpf and the cat or just leave the cat? what effect either way will this have .

Alot easier to remove CAT/DPF all in one piece. Only remove 2 bolts and loosen 1 clamp. If you leave CAT on theirs approx 18 nuts to remove DPF from CAT.

Just to clear this up. Block off plates do not stop the flow of coolant through the coolers. They just go at each end of the coolers to keep the exhaust flow out of them
