If it was me Id put that DPF back on to play it safe, I always but that and the stock intake on if its going to the dealer, unless the dealer is cool with it

Well I talked to one of the mechanics and he said they are good with working on modified trucks, so we'll see what happens. If it were just belts i'd do it myself but don't want to pay for a tensioner if I can get Ford to pay

It's Time

Well, 81,000 miles, my belt has been making noise for a while now, just last weekend started tearing itself apart (I heard it and found pieces of it under the truck) and I think I am going to take it on this weekend. I don't have all my tools as I am working out of town, so does anybody that has done it have any suggestions on what special tools are needed besides sockets. I heard somebody talking about a thin tensioner bar, but I addume this is not needed if the procedure mentioned is followed. . .

I had my belt replaced around 10k-20k miles because it was squeeling. First they put some kind of pi$$ on it. That just made me mad. So I'm good with not doing mine for a while but I was also told if you had two people you could do it without removing the shroud or fan. Not sure if I trust that or not but that is what I was told.
