6.4 Undelete

Hey everyone,

I’m new to diesels and my first diesel is an 08 F250 6.4...please spare me the 6.4 bashing, the one I got is in great shape and has no rust. That being said I am in a situation. I wasn’t aware that mine had been deleted until after I bought it. I can’t return it to the people I bought it from because they already gave me the “we don’t know what you did to it line.” Through some bad information I was told all you had to do was take the tuner off after returning it to stock mode and it would pass. Not true. Now the state is treating me like a criminal and since I already started the titling process in my name and it’s been flagged as being tampered with, my options are to pay $7000 just in parts to fix it. I could go the lawyer route but that could take forever. So I need to figure out how to undelete it. I have heard bullet proof makes a nice egr set and bully dog makes a good dpf. I’m forced into a corner, and I don’t want to spend the money turning my truck into junk for something I didn’t do to it. This is stressful so please be kind and only offer solutions not criticism. I have had enough of that already and I just want to get it fixed. It’s had a full delete, so I need everything including sensors and it was tuned with an H&S mini maxx. I am in Utah to be specific in a county that tests emissions so if you know somebody or are willing to help, it would be much appreciated. I’ll even let you keep the full delete kit they put on it. I know this is a stretch but any help is appreciated. Parts lists, how to videos, or even the number of a reasonable mechanic that will treat me fairly.

Thank you for that and I appreciate it. I have been looking into buying a Junked one at some auctions. I’ll keep an eye out.
I'm also in Utah and have to do the annual testing. That's why I keep my stuff to re-install each year. There are plenty that live in no-test counties though that delete and sell their DPF/EGR kits for $500 or so. Just start searching KLS classifieds. Search key words like F-250, F-350, F250, F350, Super Duty, Powerstroke, 6.4, etc. I've seen plenty of them before.

Then just swap the stock parts back on and go get flashed at the Ford dealer. Do you plan to keep the truck running stock then with no deletes? If so, you may highly regret the 6.4 purchase as it will only cause you problems in the long run. If that's the case, then you may just want to lawyer up and try to get your money back from whoever you bought it from for undisclosed mods. Plus, when you purchase in Utah the seller is supposed to give you a recent within 60 days emission certificate. Did you not do that?
I bought it out of Arizona. When I called them they pulled the “we don’t know what you did to it after you bought it” card.

Shoot me an email and I may be able to help you out. [email protected]

Give me a few days to get back to you though, we are extremely busy.

Thank you! I emailed you.
For anyone in this situation, go this route and talk to corey.

Your time investment with him will pay off. [email protected]
Thank you, I definitely emailed him.
If you can find a factory exhaust system, a ford dealership should be able to flash a stock tune on it for you. I would be surprised if you couldn't find a system either on craigslist or from a member.

If the egr coolers are indeed gone as well, that's going to be the biggest pita to deal with.

It should only cost you $150-200 for the flash. If you can't find a factory system with sensors, I have all the sensors you'll need.
Thank you! I could definitely use the sensors! That would be super helpful as I don’t know what all ones that I need.
