Installing the DPF delete pipe the first time is what takes the most time. The ones that I've installed are shipped in two pieces and are not specific to your cab configuration. You must fit & cut one of the pieces, depending on whether you have a regular cab, extended cab or crew cab.
After the pipe is "fit" to your truck, it is as easy as unbolting it from the down pipe and tailpipe, dropping it out of the way, lifting the DPF in place, installing the bolts and installing the sensors.
I've been able to do the swap in about 30 minutes, including returning the truck back to the stock tune.
You need to remember that the tuner will leave it's fingerprint on your truck's ECM and the Dealer can run a diagnostic to see if the engine has been running outside of the stock programming parameters.
They usually won't do this unless you've experienced a catastrophic failure of a turbo, injection system, engine or transmission. Ford is tired of bearing the cost of guys using Race Tuners!
What happens if your truck breaks down and you're 500 miles from home? I guess you can carry your DPF with you when you leave town or have it shipped to you FedEx over-night.
With regards to the EGR: The tuner turns it OFF, so just go that route until you're out of warranty.
