Thanks for any help!!!!
I can sum it up from 4 months of scratching my head wondering the same thing (and wishing there was a simple, concise answer):
-In order to do anything performance-related or to delete anything, you need a programmer. The most popular on here are the SCT 5015 (Livewire), SCT 7015 (x4), and the H&S MiniMaxx.
-Next, choose whether to delete or stay stock to experiment with power.
-Delete the EGR or leave the hardware on-board but isolated? There are several options; removing the equipment lightens the truck, cleans up the engine bay, and eliminates the soot build-up on the hardware and in the heads and cylinders. Kits are available to either block off the exhaust or block off and continue the low-side coolant loop.
-Deleting the DPF is worthwhile. Going with a replacement pipe, muffler, or downtube-back system is your choice. The replacement pipe is a partial system where downtube-back bolts to the manifold and ends where the dinosaur smoke spills. This system may or may not have a muffler as well; your choice.
Finally, some choose to remove the DEF tank and plumbing. This system must be disconnected during the DPF delete, but I am still fuzzy about how this is accomplished. I do not see any kits from the suppliers of the other hardware, so I will assume
just unplug it and tie it up or remove the whole she-bang.
From there, long live the
