Cool 1st Diesel... untouched 2010 F350 auto

Good Morning everyone,

Just bought a=
2010 F350 6.4 Diesel, auto, 250KM supercab, shortbox, gov't maintained, very tight train
Runs good, checked oil, way over full?? DPF??

Is it really that important to remove the EGR + DPF?
Could removal screw up engine?
Total cost for do it selfer?
OR, what people are paying to have both removed + where work done.

I'm looking to remove these items in a few mos.

Be nice to get help on here, in turn I will post info I gain during the removal procedure
and anything else I change.

Thanks,
Dufferin

Over full on oil is from fuel leak down in the cylinders during Regen. That's why you need to remove those components.

Removing emissions is key if you want to have your truck last. I wouldnt worry about the oil until you change it yourself and verify it was at the correct level when you started.

No shop will remove your emissions above the table as its illegal. For the cheapest option look here : https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.rpi...f-delete-tuner

You will need to buy or modify the exhaust yourself

Thanks, Sootie + RandomForumGuy,

Anybody tried gutting dpf, then weld it back up?

Or, remove cat+dpf, replace with sensor attached (via welded nut) straight pipe?

Is the cat that restrictive? OK to leave it in there?

People have gutted the dpf and cat with success. You will need a tuner to make the truck run right. You can leave the cat in but i wouldnt see why you would.

Sensors can be put back in place or removed. They will be shut off completely with the install of a tuner.
