Delete parts on the way

I ordered everything needed to delete my 2013. I have a few questions.

1. Should I load the tune and make sure the truck starts before removing the DPF?

2. I plan on tuning and removing the DPF and and driving for a few days before deleting the EGR just to make sure all is well because it seems putting the EGR back on would be a real job. Is this a good idea? Is it ok to drive with a delete tune with the EGR still on the truck?

3. I want my truck to last as long as possible (hence the reason I'm deleting) so is it safe to run a performance tune (+100 hp and +225 ft-lbs) as long as drive conservatively? Or should I just stick with the towing (mild) tune?

Thanks guys.

I'm pretty new to this too and had these same questions. These are the answers I received.

1. Yes, load the tune first. It would suck to have disassembled everything to find out your truck won't take the tune.

2. I am driving around with my EGR on. Everyone told me thats not a problem and to just delete the EGR whenever you want. Isn't hurting anything.

3. You can for sure run the performance tune. I guess don't drag race every chance you get.

The tune portion doesn't matter as long as you trust you MCC creator of if you have an unlocked race tuner ive returned my truck to stock many times to change my trans file while deleted and all it does is make your dash light up like a Xmas tree. The EGR portion doesn't to much matter just make sure you unplug the orange plug on top of the EGR and the throttle valve and yea the "middle of the road" tune is fine don't waste your time with tow fueling, street is the best all around tune ive run em since day one on my 13 and am doing the same on my 14 ive towed 20k with loaded in both trucks and seen 20 MPGs so I stick with it

Good info! I haven't unplugged anything. What would happen if I didn't? I'm concerned I may have missed stuff like this and that it may come back to bite me in a few months or in 10 minutes.

Thanks

I'd like to add DO NOT start your truck after loading tune WITH dpf on. Just load tune, then when it's done unplug tuner, turn truck off and then take your dpf off.

Also the higher the tune the better mpg you will see. ( if you drive responsibly )

I'm not sure what adverse effects it would have if you didn't unplug then the H&S high sulfer manual just says to avoid damage to your EGR parts .... Who knows what that means I had my stuff unplugged for a week and it felt weird to me compared to my 13 with everything gone so I just got ahold of my connection and got rid of every thing again , it only takes about two hour and a little coolant mess but it's worth it

If you wanted to be safe ypu could load the tune take it for a ride arpund the block and make sure everything's ok. Soot load won't climb that high in a few miles if Ypur not on some 150hp level that is. I'd say un plugging he egr would have something to do with the codes is makes. As in say they disable the code for egr valve open circuit. So once it's unplugged it doesn't work obvi. If it's plugged in it still works normally or the. Throws weird codes or makes it act goofy. This is pure speculation.

you can unplug the egr to find out, but its ready to go if/when you do ! there are 2 sensors that need unplugged to shut it off.

page 56 has the pics you need !

Just currious as to why not to start the truck before removing the DPF? I was planning on loading the tune, starting the truck, then shutting down just to be sure there were no crazy issues with the tune or PCM before I went through the hassle of pulling everything off. I'd hate to take everything off only to find out the truck wont start. Is there a risk of damage to the truck by just firing it up for a few seconds?

Never fails... I've finally got all my parts sitting in my garage waiting to be installed and the last minute doubts flare up... sooner I get a day off to delete the better!!
