Oil change after delete

Now that I'm deleted and tuned, can I still take my truck to my local dealership for a oil change? Would I have to detune and put the CAT/DPF back on? because if thats the case forget it!!!!

I do plan on doing my first one myself, but if it's more of a PITA then I may source it out after.

Thanks

Don

Are you still under warranty?
If not, then I don't think it matters.
I would be more inclined to take it to an independent mechanic.
I see that you're in Middleburg. I'm in Jax. I have a reputable mechanic near SS and Beach Blvd if you choose that route.

This may be a silly question, but why not just do your oil changes yourself? It takes all of 20 min and that way you know the correct oil (and amount) is in it.

-Pull the drain plug (wait 30 sec and get an oil sample if you are going to send one)
-Remove the fill cap
-Remove the oil filter (it takes a 36mm socket to remove the plastic cover. Also the same socket required for your fuel filter caps).
-Put in new filter
-Put in drain plug
-Fill with 15qts of quality oil
-Reinstall fill cap.

Yeah I would lean towards doing the oil change myself also.
Especially knowing that the temptation for a shop to stomp on a 600HP/1100lb truck is always going to be there when they test drive it.

I fully agree!!!!

Where have you guys found an oil catch pan that will hold 15 -16 quarts of used oil?

And where have you found the best source for getting your oil filters?

Coming from a 3rd gen 5.9 cummins the oil change on the 6.4 is a breeze. Do it yourself.

My local autozone carries the motorcraft oil filter FL2016, I jack the truck up and use a 5gal bucket to catch the oil. The standard drain pans at auto parts stores won't hold it all.

I got a oil catch can at oriellys a while back. It holds 5 gallons. 16 qts is 4 gallons so it's plenty of space.
