Question 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!

EPA was on the news the other day saying they have the authority to garnish wages for anyone that violates EPA regulations. What that means, who knows! Just Liberal Government over reach.

Basically that's means if you get a EPA fine and don't pay it they'll take it reguardless. I don't recall in the states of pa,wva, Ohio maryland ever seeing a EPA agent. Yes I have seen dot officers but this dining from deletes I hear about even in my area I have yet to see this paper saying anyone about a fine. I know it can happen. I had my 2010 dodge deleted and had a 6in single stack for 3.5yr and never had someone pull me over. I think it all has to do with how you drive. If I do delete i plan on running a ground pounder exhaust tip so you have to lay on the ground to see inside so I don't say hey look at the soot in the exhaust. Idk maybe it's stupid but gonna do it anyways.

It was ironic that they made that announcement right after Fox News reported idiots "Rolling Coal". I'm deleted and proud of it. However, I don't go around blowing smoke bringing attention to myself. Idiots

I had the same concerns beforehand. I am happy with the amount of smoke at takeoff. It only shows up if you stand on it. This can be can be adjusted in the low boost fueling settings in either the Mini Maxx or the XRT. I have not heard if the other brands are able to do this.

Regarding the startup, the truck will smell like diesel truck exhaust again. A full exhaust with a 40-51" muffler will keep the truck quiet(er) and won't draw extra attention. I am not thrilled with smell but I am willing to live with it. It is worth it to me.

You're truck may just be losing some compression after 70K miles, but you can easily drive a deleted truck without ever letting out black smoke. The only time it comes out is when you stomp on the peddle and H&S low boost fueling limits that to a bare minimum. As far as the smell goes, you probably won't leave your truck running in a closed garage or tie your shoes down-wind near the tailpipe, but it still runs cleaner than older diesels.

I basically said the same thing as you without even reading your post. It makes me sound like a broken record...

No big deal. I know that it is reassuring to me to hear similar stories and that may help others as well.
