Killing the DPF

An Idea:

All we have to do is gut the DFP compeltely, make it straight through, and keep it on the truck. It's 4" at point anyways. Also, gut the kitty if need be and just run a 4" DPF-back system and you're legal wherever you go. If it is gutted, theoretically it should not clog up, thereby not triggering the sensors to regenerate, thus saving lots of fuel, money, and headaches!

Anyone see a problem to this idea?

Cummins, Duramaxes, and Powerstrokes - some of each
Newest: 08 King Ranch - 8" Rize, 20" Monsters, 5" straight pipe, Spartan, Alien Patrol, etc.

I dont think that you could gut them and not have the sensors start throwing codes.

By "problem" do you mean except that it is COMPLETELY ILLEGAL?

Yes, the PCMs are smarter than that, and even IF you don't get a code, they will know.

So are you telling us that the pcm is "Big Brother" Moreover, who is going to come arrest you for hot-rodding your diesel????

As long as you aren't in a draconian state you will probably be alright. Your warrantee may be toast though. As long as you aren't making alot of smoke you probably won't even be noticed.

Seriously, wheres the fun in that? It will only be a matter of time untill someone crackes the code to write that segment out of the pcm. If you own one and you truely want to try fooling the sensors let me know. I want to see if the method I know for a fact to work on another manufacturer will work on the Fords.

If it gets bad enough they will probably start fineing for tampering with a motor that was deemed legal. I have attached a page out of an old service manual, it is for semis but the nature of it fits this topic, also judgeing by the date I would say it would be safe to just multiply the fine.

I wrote in a couple of threads about dropping the 6.4 into the 6.0 body. Would this definately eliminate the DPF? I know you will not have the all new style truck but you can see what the 6.4 really can do without worrying about legal matters, I think it will not have to meet the 2008 emissions if it's under the hood of a 6.0 truck.
