Well, it's official. Yesterday I purchased a black 2008 F350 SWD Crew Cab short bed King Ranch package truck. The truck has 123,000 miles which made the price lower. The truck came with the Banks system with CAI, intercooler, exhaust and the six-gun PDA tuner.
I was happy until I got home and crawled under the truck to see it still had the DPF. After some research here, I guess the Banks system is meant to keep the truck stock with some computer 'tricking' (no PCM tuning). So if I wanted to remove the DPF, I read that I either have to either get the DPF-R product from GearBoxZ or ditch the Six-Gun and get a decent tuner (+ pipe).
Are there tuners that I could borrow and just program out the DPF & EGR and continue to use the six-gun? Also, what is a DOC? Remove the catalytic converter? I am not looking for a loud truck, just good MPG and decent power. Seems plenty loud with the Banks. Thoughts?
congrats on the new truck. I love my minimaxx and have a 4" downpipe and 5" flo pro downpipe back exhaust. I would get rid of the banks as it will not work with a dpf delete. There are some good venders on here that will hook you up.
