Will a spartan tuner, dfp, cat, egr deletes fix my truck?

I have a 2008 f350 lariat. I have had it for two years now and put 30000km on it and recently for work I was idling a lot and my dpf got plugged up I think. I have lost a lot of power have no turbo boost it feels like its in limp mode. Check engine light came on but wasn't flashing and it was still telling me to drive to clean filter. I made it home with the truck and ran my carMD code reader and it came back as emissions problem? I have bought a spartan phalanx tuner and turbo back exhaust with dpf delete and an egr delete kit. Will this fix my problem?

Thanks for the input. Much apriciated. The diesel tech I talked to tells me the kit I bought is going to fix my problem. Says he sees it all the time. However the egr delete with elbow is a 10 hr job at 128$ hr. Is this normal?

And also I did a lot of research on the spartan minni max deal and went with spartan because the only deal with fords and I'm a die hard ford guy and also I heard they have better tranny tunes? The place I can get in to install my stuff is ah & s dealer and kindof tried to make me feel like an idiot for going with spartan. Is there anything I'm missing about the spartan or is he just trying to sell me his product?

I like the h&s minimaxx. I like the shift on the fly and the defuel.....

Not sure where you are but the 128 an hour seems real steep.

Also, if you want to save some money you can block off the egr for about 50 bucks or even just leave it for now - the high horsepower tunes will turn it off anyways

10 hr job!?!? I think you need a new mechanic. 4 hour job for someone who hasn't done it before. Cab doesn't need pulled. Only thing that needs pulled is the drivers side tire and the inner fender liner on the drivers side.

Nothing wrong with Spartan tuning. Great tuning device and best monitor out of the three.

Actual labor price and time seem about right for a competent shop. Removing the EGR is a PITA. but I did it with a buddy in my driveway.

As far as blocks, yes you can. There shouldn't be an issue running blocks for a long while unless you beat on your truck a lot.
