question about DPF delete and tuner

so here is my simple question...Can I do the tuner delete of the DPF and do the physical removal of the DPF at a later time?

DONE:
EGR delete--4" turbo back exhaust
75HP tune

I'm certainly no expert in this, but I think that you would run the risk of clogging up the DPF if you tuned the truck to eliminate regens while leaving the DPF on.

tuner

Hi,
Depending on the tuner.
(Some tuners do not have a street mode)
You can tune for Stock / Street and leave your stock exhaust on the truck.
You should never tune for Race / Off-Road and leave your stock exhaust on your truck.
You should Tune your truck for Race / Off Road mode at the same you change to the Race Off-Road exhaust.
Thanks,
Dave

DPF delete tunes with the DPF on are a no no. It will clog your DPF and your truck will go into limp mode. Street tunes are kinda a waste tho. You will get more power, yes, but you will have more regens.

your truck won't go into limp mode, it will just flat out shut off
