what is it.....Diesel particulate filter - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
you can either install downpipe back or just a delete pipe to remove the DPF. And yes by removing it you will also need to tune the truck to stop the regen process. By doing either of these things will kill your warranty if catch by Ford and can led to a 10K fine by the EPA.

I dont think you can "Just remove it" as I think your truck will go into constant re-gen. you will need some programming. And "Yes" the gains are worth it imho.

You can install a aftermarket DPF back exhaust and you'll be fine through the EPA and dealer. It's when you want to delete the DPF/DOC(cat) using aftermarket exhaust or delete pipes is where there is an issue about fines and warranty.
