Delete??

I apologize if this is redundant but I've been combing the forums and reading what I can about a "Delete" but I'm still a little confused. The word delete seems to be used as a general term, I'm wondering what exactly does it mean to Delete your truck? What does it entail in parts ect? And does it require a tuner? I really don't want to jeopardize my warranty.

Deleting would refer to removing your dpf and EGR emissions systems. Doing that requires a tuner. Most dealers don't mind warrantying minor issues while you are deleted, larger engine repairs require a ford engineer to read your ECM, which will find out if you have tuned or not and void that warranty work.

It's short/slang for deleting certain emission reduction apparatus's. In your case it would be/may be the EGR and it's cooler, the catalytic converter and/or the diesel particulate filter. The parts involved are pipes and tubing used to replace the item of interest. A tuner would be required in your case if you deleted the DPF( diesel particle filter), and does void warranties if found. Also a slight(pun) EPA violation

I see, so I understand that removing the DPF would increase performance and raise the exhaust noise level I assume. What are the benefits of deleting the EGR system?
