Talking More for the DPF debate

I just got off the phone with my Brother-in-law and he was talking about his new 6.7 F-350, we got on the subject of DPF delete, and I told him about my experience with now my second 6.4 truck. My 2008 I did Spartan delete and tune at 84000 Mi, wanting to wait out the warranty, Big mistake, If I had to do over I would do it the day I bring the truck home, I did my 2010 at 2000 mi, mainly because I had to take a trip the week I got it home, I now have 29000 Mi on the truck and the only warranty issue was a bad power window motor, and reprogram the TPMS(bigger tires) , My 2008 only warranty issue was the radiator, at 31000 Mi, and the radio control on the steering wheel stopped working. Aside from paying $600.00 to spartan (for another license) I feel it was well worth the investment, My truck is getting 19 MPG, with 315 tires and 6" lift and Im very happy with the performance.

Now the downside, If I had any major problems I could return the factory tune,
and hopefully would not void the warranty, The other would be if Colorado starts Smogging the whole state, other than that I really dont see any other negatives to delete & tune, unless you look at the federal law,
but then its against federal law to take the tag off a mattress, and be in the United States Illegally and they dont seem too be doing anything about that.

Just my opinion http://www.powerstrokeforum.com/foru...ons/icon10.gif

Can you get info from your dealer how they re-programmed the TPMS to accept your bigger tires/pressure difference? What pressures are you running in them?

I was there when they did it, they just reset the TPMS threshold in the truck computer
to 45 PSi, My factory setting Was at 55 PSI and that depends on what tires it was equipped with when built.
I know that some dealers either dont know how to do it or wont, based on directives from Ford, I have a good working relationship with my dealer, as all our trucks are Superdutys
and they have always been good about any concerns we have had.

As much as I hate to say it, I do think that they will eventually go to state wide emission testing here in CO. I keep hearing of more and more counties requiring them these days.

I've decided to do the dpf delete on my 08 after researching and reading a lot of posts. My question is do you have to get a programmer to delete any codes or can you just bolt up the dpf delete and be good to go.

If you just delete the DPF your truck will go into Regen right away. A tuner is required to trick your truck into thinking it is there. I have the H&S MiniMaxx and it will enable me to delete the DPF. Delete is coming next paycheck! Can't wait to wake this beast up.

Good to know. I'm going to be ordering my H&S tuner and S&B intake by the end of this week.
