dpf delete tunes

Can a truck run with the dpf still attached to the exhaust system(not removed) but with a tune so its never operational? I am just curious.

Some tuners give you the option to run with the dpf installed. The truck will still have to regen the dpf, and the times for some are greatly increased = lower mpg & power.

I think you COULD turn it off by choosing the dpf delete choice when you install the tuner... But WHY? The filter will clog that much sooner causing more problems than they do when the operate, even killing your engine.

I bet you could. If you disconnect the sensors and tell the tuner there is no DPF it should work. As already stated, the DPF would fill very fast and kill the engine.
