What does DPF mean . . . __________ particulate filter?
I see both of you that responded are from California and have installed high performance equipment on your trucks. Have either of you, or anyone else, had any type of problems with this equipment? I would really like to install some high performance equipment on my truck, but I am very paranoid due to the below information.
My 08 F450 is totally stock; the reason being is that I used to own an 04 6.0, which was ultimately bought back by ford via the lemon law. The 04 was equipped with a turbo back exhaust, Superchips tuner, and a cold air intake. Immediately after I blew up the motor I removed all of the aforementioned high performance equipment from the truck before I had it towed to my dealership because I had already heard horror stories in which dealerships (Ford) was denying warranty claims for blown motors because owners had installed similar high performance equipment. I heard one story in which an 04 6.0 owner's warranty claim for a blown motor was initially denied by Ford because he had an aftermarket billet grill on his truck. The owner later pointed out to the service manager that a new identical Ford Harley/Davidson truck had an almost identical billet grill from the factory.
PS: My truck now has about 19K on it and my mileage sucks (10 mpg on a flat road). What kind of mileage are you guys getting with the high performance equipment? Any problems or issues related to the installation of the high performance equipment?
