DPF

Hey just got a 2009 F250 and I'm hearing some folks talk about removing the DPF. But when I did a little research for one it says its illegal and two you'd have to have some programming done to the computer. Is it worth it, is it difficult to do, do you all still run with the DPF? Your thoughts and feed back would be greatly appreciated.

Highly recommended to extend life of engine and to increase performance. You will need a tuner that supports dpf removed Tunes. Downside Is yes....removing emissions Is illegal. If your state requires annual emissions....you will need to reinstall dpf prior to inspection. Also consider if truck Is Still.under warranty you will need to return to stock before taking to dealer. they frown on mods and could void warranty. its not hard to install But much Easier if you can get truck on a lift.

Fortunately my state I'm exempt from inspections and factory war is long gone. So going to work on getting rid of dpf. Does the tuner have to continuously trick the computer or is it a one time reprogram. And can you recommend a tuner that can do a dpf delete.

H&S or spartan. You leave it on all the time. If you have anymore questions use the search function, all of your questions have been answered before.

Wrong. It's a reprogram and then you can remove. The spartan and H&S don't have to remain plugged in. Most leave it in for gauge purposes. These aren't your piggy back tuners of old. They don't need to continually adjust and "trick" sensors.

With H&S you got tunes on the fly. I don't know why you would ever take it off. Like you said it monitors, and that's why everyone leaves them on.

I certainly have no interest in driving without my Mini Maxx.

I leave my spartan in for gauges. But with both that and the H&S it is not required to leave in. It's a personal choice. If you only run one tune and have some other way to monitor, don't need to keep it plugged in.

Besides if you have the h&s offroad tunes and it gets stolen what do you do?
I think this would be the only reason to hide once in a while
