dpf questions

Im new to the world of diesels and all the new emissions. I keep geting told i need to delete the DPF using a dpf delete exhaust. Looking under the truck i can see sensors in the exhaust, if i just use a dpf delete exhaust will the truck start throwing codes or anything funny. Im not planning on doing a turner yet. One step at a time. I was planning on doing the exhaust, then air air intake and then the turner. But not anywhere near the same time . So i just wanna know the postives/negatives to doing the dpf exhaust . Does in actually do any good or is it just a preference thing. Plus all the exhaust say racing use which i figured is because its "off road use only" but i tow alot so i dont wanna sacrafice any power. Im looking to do this because im told that it can extend the life of the engine/components. Any information on this would be greatly apprectiated. Thanks. Truck is a 2008 F350 6.4L..all stock 64k miles

If you don't have a tuner, it will throw codes. You can install a tuner prior to removing the DPF pipe but you will clog the DPF rather quickly unless your using a DPF ON tune. But you can't remove the DPF without tuning or the truck will throw codes and refuse to start more then once from what users have reports who tried.

So You can do the following in any order,
CAI, Exhaust (DPF back), Tuner

But you can't remove the DPF without something that disables the regen function, i.e. a tuner.

There's plenty of choices out there from a module that simply turns off the regen function and adds an economy tune to full blown tuners that can add 300+ HP to your vehicle. With costs ranging from $460 to $1200+.

Do the EGR delete also, I lost a 6.0 Engine in my 06 because of this POS its a bad design that when failure occurs will allow coolant to fill up the engine, ( real bright huhh) I dont know why ford didn't just use an air cooled cooler, the kits are relatively inexpensive, under $ 150.00 compared to a $6000.00 short block, and will cause the truck to produce much less black smoke after its been tuned, I even tested mine at a diesel test station and it passed, Colorado only checks for black smoke more than 3 seconds, at accel. and shift, and mine is well under that.
