you go with sct livewire for 650 and then the price of the delete pipe and run the mild tune and still come out better

Our old Ford v3.5 DPF-R product did indeed have its fair share of problems, but that product has now been replaced with the v4.0 mini programmer. This unit has been very successful. You simply plug the unit onto the diagnostics port and follow a voice prompted, yes and no menu. Takes about 15 minutes to program and you are set. Unplug it and store it way. When you need to set the truck back to stock simply plug it back in and follow the same menu and 3 minutes later you are done. Even stacks with other tuners/chips. If you have any other questions feel free to give us a call, we will be happy to answer any questions you have.

On a tuner note: For another $100 above the cost of the standard DPF-R you can get our plus unit which comes with a very well rounded tune. We are seeing 4-5 mpg increase above stock with the DPF-R Plus. It also gives you another 70+ HP which is nice for those who like to do some towing. Again this unit is can be installed as a Delete only and will still stack with other tuners/chips.

This is what I did. When I bought it all, I was in college and after bills and stuff I had about $100 extra money left to spend on it. So I waited till I had the money. I thought about the DPF-R but it's just not worth it. The SCT comes with tunes and trans tuning.

I was so cheap at the time I convinced myself that I didn't care about the added power. But, the SCT has a tune that is just DPF removal and no added hp, and it only adds about 1mpg on my truck, the extreme tune gives about 4mpg better for me. This would be the best route for ya. Just be patient if you can.... I think SCT actually came out with the SF-3 for the 6.4 that doesn't have a monitor, and is only a programmer(so it's cheaper). That would be a good option, or others have been happy with the H&S XRT...

Side note- Where are you located?

And what kind of footprint does it leave in the truck when returned back to stock?

None. It puts the exact same firmware back on that was originally on the truck. One of the first things it does when you start the install is to make a copy of the existing tune on the truck. It then stores that tune until your ready to put it back to stock.

How does it account for regen's over time?

If you leave the DPF on the truck, instead of removing it, wouldn't clog and become more of a problem since there is no way to clean it out?

I doubt that it is undetectable once uninstalled by a good tech. it removes the stock program and reinstalls it just like the other tuners and they can dig to find dirt on them! I guess it depends on how bad they want to void you!

Go To VMPTuning.com, Justin does all the tuning on my GT500, He offers a kit a DPF delete and Livewire for $750.00. Bought that since i trust him to deal with and know what i am getting with SCT. I DOES NOT LEAVE A FOOTPRINT on your computer. we are not talking about GM, if you are over paranoid, feel free to disconnect the battery for 10 minutes.. I have taken all of my Fords in for service with no questions asked.

We have a former Ford tech working for us and he tells us it as detectable as putting a ford factory tool on the truck and updating it. So how would you tell the difference between the two?

Have you guys tried stacking this with other tuners like Spartan or H&S? If so what were the results? I know the Dodge crowd stacks but I have always heard not to stack with Fords. Is it safe?
