EGR Deleted and returned to factory? Driving?

After a month long process with SCT, i finally got my pcm an tcm recovered and installed in the truck after my livewire locked me out and now my truck is Returned To Stock. Im egr/dpf deleted and SCT is telling me i need to go to ford to get the calibration update on the PCM before tuning my truck again. They say if i try to tune it now, the device will lock me out again.

So my question is, is it alright to drive my truck returned to factory with an egr and dpf delete?

How far do you have to go? I have driven mine with the dpf deleted but returned to stock mode on my edge but I only drove about 5 miles. I am not sure how the EGR delete would work with the truck being returned to stock. I would imagine that it would just throw a code. It will probably go into reduced power mode.

My dealers about 15 miles 1 way. Gotta drive there an back.

I started the truck up just to make sure it would start when i got everything back from SCT. It started, check engine light came on and the trailer brake fault came up on the dash with a wrench.

I searched online about driving when returned to stock with egr deletes and didn't find much information so i figured i'd post up just incase there is a big heads up about it.

I think the wrench means reduced power mode which means you will only have half power. As for the dpf delete, the truck will probably go into regen on your way there.

If you have the computer set up for stock dpf on tuning, thats the way you need to run it. If you run dpf on stock file without dpf I'm sure you run the risk of jacking something up

I would probably throw it back on to go that far. How much does the dealership charge to flash your computer?

Nevermind, I just realized you said you just needed a calibration update.

They said for my truck the calibration update will be 110$-140$ cause my VIN number didnt show that my truck was one of the trucks needing the update for the TSB. I've read on here for some trucks its a recall type thing. The guy on the phone said they will also have to see what calibration is even on my truck and whether just the PCM needs calibrated or both the PCM and the TCM.

To get it flashed my dealer charges 89.99$

Never thought of tuning it for dpf delete and all that, SCT reports if i plug my livewire in and try to tune my truck even with a pre loaded tune, its gonna lock me out and ill need to do this entire process again with them. They told me my TCM and PCM were returned to stock and my truck is fine to drive the way it is. I didn't believe that line or feel safe. I'll call on monday and see what i can figure out.
