DPF Delete / Tunning Question

I have a 2013 Ford F-250 (6.7L Powerstroke) and want to delete the DPF System but worried about my warranty. I have read that once you tune the truck that it leaves a mark on the ECM. My question is if I bought another ECM and had it flashed to the identical one in the truck now can I just remove the current stock one and use the extra one for the tune? If I ever need warranty work just switch the ECM and bolt the DPF System back on. Would that work??

New to diesels, always had F-150's

Yes, I would be interested in this as well. I wonder if telling the dealership to stay the hell away from my ECM during a warranty repair would work...

no, it won't. just return your truck to stock before going to the dealer and no problem

Yea man just use H&S it backs up your old PCM file onto a micro SD card and ull be fine the only thing a shop will be able to see that will be odd is the amount of drive cycles since fault the PCM stores a freeze frame as to when a trouble code was created and about of starts since fail and if you have an issue and go to the dealer you might look like a psychic telling em you have a problem and the code hasn't popped back up yet or you have a PCM that's throwing a code before all your drive test cycles or monitors for the PCM have been ran. Also as a tech for about a decade its not hard to tell if an exhaust has just been removed and or installed based on marks on the nuts and bolts and what not haha once you delete you wont need the dealer
