CJS10mm I am kind of confused by what you are asking, are you saying something like a DPF-R box? If so please, for the sake of your truck just get a Mini Maxx or have someone with an XRT Pro delete it properly, and run a low end tow tune. There are plenty of places you can still get race tuners for under a grand. PM me for info.

The Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) or CAT as you refer to it, is bolted to the front of your DPF, if you get a downpipe back delete exhaust (which run around 300-350) you will have a good clean sound, no cab drone that I have heard and plenty of turbo noise when you want to. Outside the truck it wounds akin to a jet engine at idle ( just quieter). You can also get a "Race Pipe" which will save you about $100 and the tailpipe will still look stock.

I would also recommend an EGR delete as this will prevent exhaust gas (soot) from entering your intake and gumming things up (along with a CCV re-route. Emissions gear on diesels these days make them dirty on the inside and "clean" coming out the tailpipe.

My truck already had the dpf delete and a Mini Maxx, but I almost always run it at stock tune. The Maxx shows everything going on and is handy...no law says you have to up the tune.

yes it looks easier to install but I really dont want an obnoxiously loud truck. Just a little more turbo noise and getting rid of the dpf for longevity reasons. I cant find any videos of what they sound like other than guys just revving off the limiter which really tells me nothing. What I have read says the dpf/cat is a strange sound that resonates in the cab and the dpf is just a touch louder. Would love it if someone had some good sound clips

DPF delete and stock tune

Truck is out of warranty and my plan is to dpf delete but i do not want to tune the truck. Looking around I found a number of kits for around $500 with the pipe and delete software. I would like some recommendations for vendors to purchase this from as well as reviews on the product itself if possible. Thanks in advance for the help.
