Newbie - Attempting to delete DPF and EGR

Morning Folks.

My wife is finally letting me put in my 5'' exhaust, H&S tuner, egr delete and air intake. Problem is I'm much more attuned to woodworking than working on vehicles.

I've searched the 6.7 forums and read a bunch of your guys helpful tips but I've just some got newbie questions I'd like to get answered before I start tinkering with my $65k truck.

1. H&S is installed. What order would you install the following? EGR delete, Exhaust and intake.

2. Do I need to drain the diesel exhaust fluid before before I start unplugging things?

3. Flo pro has given me a handy dandy 2 page instruction piece of paper. So I'm basing the next couple things on me guessing. The temperature probe that I unplug from DPF goes where? Is it in the EGR block off plate? What about the lines I unplug from the DPF?

4. I originally purchased the 5'' with a muffler. Is it pretty easy to switch to straight pipe if I decide otherwise?

Thanks in advance for any help you guys can offer. I apologize for sounding like a total newbie. I am.

1. Tune dpf removed first, exhaust, egr delete, cold air intake
2. No
3. All the lines stay and tape them up, block plates yes you need a egt probe off the stock exhaust. The probe then goes into the bung on the plate. The line stays on for the urea unplugged.
4. Just dont pur it on

Thanks for your help hollywood1983.

One last question. Getting under the truck and looking at the exhaust. It looks like the bolts have been weld on? Is this correct? Or is there just that much rust? Do I need to cut these bolts off? To elaborate. I'm talking about the connection between the downpipe and other pipe before the DPF.

thanks in advance

Thats how they are, you just have to back the bolts out towards the engine. Its a pain I used a 3\8's rachet w a long extension.

Its right under the intake inlet on the engine, look for the egt probe on the small pipe on the egr. Follow that egt prob wire and it is plugged in under the intake inlet.

The only harness I see under the engine intake is being used by this probe which appears to be attached to the EGR? Am I in the right spot?

Sorry about the image its on its side.
