Luckily you don't have to worry about that. On the 08 and newer they have a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) and it is for emission control, and it robs power, mileage, engine life etc., etc. From my understanding, that is one of the reasons they couldn't use the 7.3 anymore, because they couldn't get all the new emission controls on it.

If I'm not mistaken the DPF started with the 6.4. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong cause I'm not 100%. Come to think of it, I'm not really sure what it stands for. I think it might be something with the exhaust maybe.

Yeah, I heard from some big whig at Ford that the only reason they quit makin' the 7.3 is cause of the emission stuff. Thank the EPA for that.

08 up including the new 6.7 have a Diesel particulate filter, it basically traps soot going down and the goes into regen heats everything up wastes your fuel and burns it out, the 7.3 has no emissions except a cat, the 6.0 has egr . the 6.4 has doc/dpf/egr, the 6.7 has all plus urea or DEF

Yeah, 7.3s are emission free. No need to worry about all of the crazy stuff bein' put on them nowadays. Lets say the 7.3 did have a DPF, I'm pretty sure the DPF is in the exhaust? Or like right before the turbo or somethin? Not really sure... but if it is, you woulda already got rid of it by havin' a straight pipe, but yeah, 7.3s don't have emissions except for a cat.

You know what, I've actually heard of some 7.3s not comin' with a cat. I thought that was pretty cool. I didn't know how many came without them, but it's still pretty neat. I'm glad you brought that up cause I didn't think anything about it.

Yours might not have one either mine is an 01 and didn't have a CAT It was made in Canada though so it might depend on where it was made I don't know.
