New truck and a quick question...

Well after drooling over them for the last 3 years I finally picked up my '10 350 on Friday. So far I completely love it and it will stay stock for a few months. My question is, being that I plan on deleting the DPF (courtesy of Spartan) in a few months. Would I be money ahead to pull the DPF sensors now, while everything is new and anti-seize them?

I dont think you would hurt anything if you pulled them and anti-seized them and then put them back in. Just make sure you don't crank the truck up while they are out.... may have some issues then.

It might also be a good measure of safety to un-plug the batts before you unplug the sensors even though they shouldn't be hot with the key off. Be prepared to fight them, even under low miles they can seize up tight. I'm actually seeing more people just buy another set of sensors to go with their delete pipe though, so if they needed, the swap back in should take less time.

Thanks, I didnt plan on starting it with them out. I just though I would anti-seize them and reinstall before they got to stuck in there.

leave them, they are already stuck in there I am sure. I took mine out after I bought my truck to put them in the DPF, my truck has 106k miles on it, after a little work with the brazing tip on the oxy/ace torch they spun right out. Id just wait.

Its probably not a bad idea to do. Either that or just spray some PB Blaster on them every once in a while. Sometimes those sensors can be a real PITA.

I went with the 2010 because I wanted the last truck year that International built the engine. Just my .02.
