Questions - Is deleting right for me?
I have a 2011 stock F-350 w/ the 6.7. I previously had a 2008 6.4 w/ the Spartan that I ran on the 210 tune most of it's life.
My truck currently has about 70k on it and my gut tells me that it is down on power some. I think it might be a turbo issue, but there are no codes and the turbo makes the same PSI that it always had? It just seems to lag a bit more and require more downshifts at speed. I have the 7yr 200k warranty from Ford as well.
I would like to remove the DPF and EGR, but I do like the lack of smoke and smell that this truck provides stock. Are there any tuners, exhaust, tunes recommendations that would eliminate the the DPF and EGR, but not smoke in normal driving? My 6.4 would let out a little smoke each time I'd start from a light. Not much, but I really don't want to even see this. I've seen stock pre-DFP Duramax and Ford 6.0 trucks that don't smoke unless you punch them. This is what I want and would consider acceptable. I've seen other deleted 6.7 trucks running around that smoke when starting up, etc. I don't want this and am willing to sacrifice (additional) power to avoid it. Also, my 6.4 would stink if I'd start it and let it warm up a few minutes. I don't want this either.
I'd like to pick up a little power, but really don't need much. I'd like to eliminate the retarded torque management that removes power during shifts. I would likely run a MagnaFlow 4" stainless exaust with a single outlet. I am not interested in any type of racing or attracting attention to the truck.
Thanks in advance!
