6.4 Exhaust Filter Stopped up, DPF DELETE?

Hey, I have a 2008 Ford f-350 6.4. My exhaust Filter has just recently stopped up, had a mechanic hook up to it and showed a stuck thermostat and stopped up DPF. Truck has 94,000 miles so the filter is still barely under warranty. But i was thinking about just getting rid of it and doing a dpf delete. i can get a sct livewire for $400 and find dpf pipe on ebay fairly cheap. some have sensors or bungs, i dont know what the difference is or which one i would need. As far as the SCT programmer is it pretty self explanatory? what about the egr delete, is that something i need to do also? I tow a 2 car trailer at all times behind truck and travel alot of miles and cant afford to be breaking down on road again. Any advice or help would be much appreciated.

I believe the sct needs the delete pipe with bungs. EGR delete is good in that it will stop the exhaust gases going through your intake manifold. I think that it is a good mod to do.

If you can get the DPF replaced under warranty, then do that, put in a delete pipe, and keep the new DPF in case you need it.

As superduty said the egr is also a good thing to delete for longevity of engine/turbos

Get the DPF replaced under warranty. Then call us for a DPF Delete kit that's all designed to work together.

Not all LiveWires come with DPF Delete programming. Our Live Wire tuners come with Off Road tune strategies that shut down regen. We can also turn off the EGR system. If the EGR valve stays closed, the coolers will never fail.
We recommend the S&B cold air intake kit because it is very easy to install. We can supply any of the intake kits, but some are more difficult to install. The one thing to remember is that they all do exactly the same thing. The pipe that comes with our kit is stainless steel and replaces both the DPF and the DOC. The pipe is about 6' long and has all the threaded bung welded in to transfer the factory sensors into the new pipe. There is no cutting or welding. The pipe simply bolts into the factory location.

Give us a call if you're interested.

i agree with the rest of the guys get the dpf replaced under warranty and then delete it, i went with SCT tuner for the simple fact they delete everything, DPF, EGR, and cats i took out the cats and the DPF pipe and put a straight pipe in and the chip deleted alll those sensors all i did was tie them up under the chassis
