What year and motor?

I have a 2011 6.7. I did a complete delete. If you remove DPF you will need a tuner. From before deletes to after, complete different acting truck. So much power its insane. You can find complete kits on Ebay. I went with a Mini Maxx tuner, Sinister EGR delete kit, S&B cold air intake and FLo Pro 5" Stainless exhaust. Cost me $1600.00. Did it in my driveway over a weekends time. Highly recommend.

I'm not looking for more power or anything else. I'm perfectly happy with the way my truck runs and pulls. My 2012 only has 56K miles on it and my dealer says the DPF is cracked and it is out of warranty and will cost $2,800 to replace it!!!! I am just looking for a permanent fix because I can't afford to spend $2,800 every 56K miles.

For that kind of money you can fix it one time and never have to worry about it again.

As for not wanting more power, that's easy. Keep you foot out of it and it'll drive like a couch. "Too much power is just about right."

If you take into account the extra fuel, Air, Def Fluid used, plus the CO2 produced, is the carbon foot print larger.

Just like Ethanol yes you can lower emissions but at what cost? How much energy does it take to produce Ethanol?

It all depends on what your using the truck for? Hauling Delete the DPF ASAP, everyday driving keep it.

Delete the DPF you will love the towing ability.

You are so right, boyeraz! These hybrids that are touted to be so "earth-friendly" are no more fuel efficient than a diesel equivalent, and you have toxic batteries to manufacture and dispose of... This society of sheep believes whatever is popular. And carbon footprint... SERIOUSLY. If you want facts, look up what ONE volcanic eruption produces compared to the estimated carbon emissions of all of human history. It is very enlightening. Facts, people!

You're mileage will go up. How much is the question. I have read not as much as deleting the 6.4's. I saw about 2mpg when I did my 6.4 . I know my truck below runs about 15.5mpg down the highway at 70mph. It was around 16-16.5 before I added the larger tires. When the truck goes through a cycle my mileage falls about 1 mpg. I almost gain it back when another regen starts. My truck goes into regen about every 350 miles. I'm guessing I'm losing about 10% of my mileage. Lighter trucks which get better mileage and don't regen as often likely lose less. I'm currently debating deleting. The DEF goes no where near the engine. I can't see how deleting would ever hurt the engine. I pull a 40ft 5th wheel. I gain about 1 mpg driving 65-68 versus 72-75. Makes a huge difference. My combined is a little over 25K. 8-9 at 72-75 depending on wind and terrain. 9-10 slowing down just a bit.

Just picked-up my 2011 from Bosque Flat Diesel near Stephenville. Matt installed the H&S tuner. EGR block and DPF delete. Although, he didn't remove the shell of the DPF and install the straight pipe. he opened the shell of the DPF and "roto routered," welded it back up and reinstalled ... so now I've got a 6' section of BIG pipe. Gave it a low rumble, too. Not loud, but noticeably different.

I gotta study the ops of the H&S unit a little bit. The pyro didn't respond as I expected. In fact, Pyro 1 with "factory source" actually indicated inverse ... throttle closed, the displayed EGT would get to 1800 degrees. With a load on it, it'd drop to 350ish ... clearly that's incorrect.

I haven't "tried it out" yet, but I can tell it's much more responsive. The 20 mile drive home, which included driving through Stephenville ... the computer displayed 19 mpg!!!! I'm anxious to do an old school calculation; though precision is difficult because refilling to full with the flat bed filler neck is a challenge.

Has anyone tried to plumb the DEF tank to hold fuel? Using that 6 gallons would be handy.

Update ... returned to Matt earlier this week and he installed another thermocouple to a Bully Dog transducer which connected to the H&S screen. Easy.

Pyro 1 now reads correctly.

Took it on an empty (4 SUV tires for Mom) 180 mile trek yesterday ... 17.1 mpg displayed ... 20-30 mph wind pushed half of that distance and I wasn't smelling roses along the way. "...long way to go and short time to get there."

I am happy. Thanks Matt/co at Bosque Flat Diesel.

We all probably prefer clean air. However, the emissions from the regen are worse than the regular diesel emissions. They are trying to get rid of the DEF in California.

That's why everyone should delete....cleaner air and less waste. Make your engine last longer and use less fuel! Do you have any idea how much pollution and energy it takes to make fuel, another engine or emissions parts, or a whole new vehicle for that matter? If you want GREEN, DELETE, DELETE, DELETE!

I'd love for you or anyone else explain to me how a diesel engine that will run 20 miles on 1 gallon of fuel is more harmful to the air that we breathe than a ''government smog control equipped'' diesel engine that will only run 12 miles on 1 gallon of fuel ?

Sorry, but this is wrong.

I had the PCM update done some time ago and my truck was shut down recently due to EGT sensor failure.

I wasn't going to do a delete, but I am now...
