Newb - DPF/Tune

HI guys -

Ive asked some 7.3 questions in the past and am now looking at a used 6.4.

Im a little confused by the whole egr/dpf/tuner thing.

I do understand what the basic functions of the egr and dpf.

Would a guy simply, 1. Block off the egr 2. Remove the dpf filter 3. Install a tuner? Does the egr have to be done?

Second part - Im on Ontario Canada - we have a drive clean program here. If need be, could a guy simply put the dpf filter back in place and reset to stock tune?

Thanks

I dont know if I'd call it simply . Lol but yes you could. Tuner shuts the egr off.

Thanks - I thought about the word "simply" as well.. I meant - from a process point is it that simple.

So - the tuner - Spartan for example turns off the EGR so a delete isnt actually "necessary".

The thought is simple . You thinking of changing out the exhaust or just putting a section of pipe in its place? Mine didn't want to come out easily and had to be cut out due to lack of any more patience and section of pipe going over axle was a pain getting in and out on ground. Air intake is simple.lol

I was told no on the egr delete until/ if it leaks. Another member told me that oil will look dirty even after a change if egr is still around.

Thanks again.

Im thinking of replacing only the dpf section (like this
) - at least until I get a better understanding of how Ill be affceted by drive clean.

Its a Texas truck so shouldnt be too bad to remove - I hope.

Spartan - it is the only one Im remotely familiar with - a friend had a local guy install and is really happy with it.

I like mine. Went with the dash mount, not a fan of the suction cup set up.
