Exclamation 2008-2010 Urea Retrofit/DPF Delete

I spent a few hours with a Ford Service writer this past weekend while having a few things done to my truck. First of all, I was very glad to have stumbled into a mod-friendly service manager. Not only was he "OK" with the DPF delete, he recommended it. In addition to that, they do the mod right there in the ford service bay.

The most interesting thing he said to me was that he had heard talk from Ford of a Urea Retrofit for the 2008-2010 6.4s which he said was simple and relatively cheap for Ford to do. I know most of you, like me, just want the crap removed so our trucks can run like they should. But, it sure seems to me that a Urea injection system would be easy to program around, and reprogram to meet emissions with ease. And, in the long run, our trucks would be better off without the DPF and the issues that come with it.

I am not sure why, but he suggested the SCT programmer and delete. I took that into consideration when I ordered my H&S Mini Maxx yesterday from Aaron.


BTW- I have been reading your post on here for months, and you guys really helped me in deciding on what truck and what mods. So far, I have added 35" trail grapplers and Moto Metal 959s (Black) to match my Black 2010 Lariat F250 CC 4X4.

Also, in order for me to post this, i needed to be a little more anonymous than my origional username permitted me to be. So, I need to delete my original account. Could someone please tell me how to do that? Thanks!!

Urea injection system works with the DPF as an extra step. The 2011's still regen, and still have the DPF filter.

Dont know where that service manager is getting his info but urea injection is for NOx emissions and the dpf is for soot accumulation... getting rid of the dpf for a urea kit wont do the same thing unless they found a chemical that gets rid of soot... from what my field engineer told me during 6.7 school..

Well, that is simple enough to understand. I guess the next time I see him, I need to ask him again what he does for a living??

He may have said it, but I do not believe it. Sorry. I do not believe any Ford dealer would break the federal law knowingly. Not even if you brought it in on a trailer.

Maybe not, but he gave me a price for the SCT with a mileage tune and DPF/CAT delete. It was $1595 for the install and delete at the Ford Dealership and then he said they would take it to their speed shop to "finish up" for $300. Those were his exact words. He did say I would have to sign a waiver for off-road use.

I am going to just leave it at that as I am glad to have found a mod friendly dealer. He may not know what he is talking about, but if he keeps his word and takes care of me when needed, that is all I am worried about.

I have heard that Spartan sells "a lot" of programmers to Ford dealers, and has several set up as dealers.
