6.4 DPF removal and HP/MPG question?

Is it true that when you remove your DPF off the 6.4 u can get an extra 200 HP and 4mpg’s more?
I have been looking into the 6.4 a lot; just don’t like the mpg’s. I live in California and the diesel laws suck out here. My question if I buy the DPF delete and a Spartan diesel turner and install myself is there any way for FORD to know it was removed. I ask because I was told that if u remove the DPF it can throw a code that only FORD can clear and void your warranty if you do it wrong. Can someone please explain to me in more detail?

do a search.. quick review for you. spartan has a 345 tune out i believe.. thats a round about on how big of a tune there is.. and for warranty work u have to change ur truck back to stock tune and stock exhaust to take it in. otherwise your good.. well worth it. my truck got around 12-13 mpg stock.. i can now get 17 or so

Just FYI, there have been a number of reports from users being pulled over for roadside visuals/inspections. I had to go through it twice now, once before the 2010 change went into effect (So. Cali) and once after (No. Cali). If you get caught it's a $10K fine.

They did a visual under the truck, under the hood and plugged into the OBDII port. What really sucks is that they had several MC cops handy directing vehicles either into the inspection or around depending on the vehicle type.

Has anyone done a study on if consuming more fuel is worse than what the DPF does? If there was conclusive evidence that showed if you got 18 mpg vs. 12 mpg let's say over the vehicle's life-span by having the DPF off and it was better for the atmosphere, I think that would be the end of the EPA's mandate.

Since California is hurting for money I can see CHP starting to do this to make extra money for the state. I dont know anyone my self who has been pulled over in California for this but have heard stories of what happens. I read somewhere that it then gets reported to Ford and warrenty is voided. I love the way the new 6.4 looks but to be honest no willing to loose my warrenty and get a 10k fine. Thanks for the help guys.

Just another reason why I would never live in CA. Firearms being another.

Will CHP pull over out of state trucks to do the inspection? Not that I plan on driving out there just curious though.
