New Diesel Owner needing advice for "EPA" delete
I just purchased my first diesel, 2011 F-250, and I have obviously done a lot of research to figure out the best way to make the engine stronger, more powerful and also have better fuel economy.
That being said, as a Mechanical Engineer who has designed aspects of combustion engines (worked on GM's 6.2L Supercharged LSA motor), I know that the idea of the EGR is a horrible design and harmful to a motor. The EGR delete kit is not where my confusion sets in however. If I do that, I would also like to delete the DPF and probably the SCR/urea as well.
So my questions are, what recommendations do you guys have for DPF delete kits? Did you also delete the SCR & Urea?
The most important question that I have.... What programmer would be the best to correct these deletes and works best? Keep in mind that I don't plan on racing and the only trailer I haul is my tournament bass boat during the summers so I'm not pulling large loads.
Any help would be greatly appreciated and if you would rather PM me that is fine. I obviously would also need information on where to buy the tuner/programmer whether it be H&S, Spartan or whatever. I know they aren't easy to find anymore.
Thanks again and I'm glad to be part of the 6.7 Powerstroke club!!
