Okay!! Off with the CAT & DPF...

Okay... Since the Duramax guys have done it with no real issues, heres the question?

1. I don't want a straight pipe, but a turbo back w/muffler, perferabley 4".
2. Who has or will have this for the 6.4?
3. I would be willing to pay up to 1K.
4. Also a conserative power programmer say 50hp/100lbs. . Say a tow tune and a milage tune... I would like a box set up instead of a programmer due to connect/disconnect. I would pay $ 800 for a quality product.

Has anyone done a straight pipe with a 6.4 not just for a few minutes, but drivin it and testing it.

Also, for some of the guys out there... I don't care about the drivetrain warranty, I will play so I will have to pay. I will have my 08 in the end of July is the plan. I will not do anything to it until I have at least 5,000 on the odo, but can anyone to include vendors give any advise here?:smoke

Blessings,



PS... This is not a rant, but it seems the Dodge guys and the Duramax guys always seem to be ahead of the curve..... as trucks I am a ford guy the other 2 are not an option....:Thumbup:

If you take off the dpf and muffler, remove all sensors and lay them aside or the truck will go into constant regen mode.

no one really has a tune as of yet or a turbo back kit either. Bully dog came out with a downloader but hasn't really been tested much yet. Also MBRP has a DPF back exhaust but that isn't a whole lot. wait for a while more will come out

it shouldnt go into regen mode with an active code for the dpf sensors. unless Ford has stepped on the danger side of things during regen it needs to know how hot the dpf is so as to have it hot enough to clean but not so hot as to melt it.

the biggest issues isnt warrenty but rather legallity they are talking of making all diesel trucks pass an opacity test by 2010 and without a dpf you wont pass and will smoke like mad

This is why I would like to have a down pipe back exaust. When the event arrises I can put back the stock system without cutting or welding. Elimating the CAT/ DPF my not be "popular" and not looked upon by members favorably, but I am trying to see whats out there so when the time arises I can make a educated decision if doing this is safe and effective... Thanks for the responses...:thanks:

I think that the ideal setup will be expensive but work. Here is my idea and the first vendor to use it can PM me for my address to send the check.

A bypass system! Of course the bypass will only be used for OFF ROAD and FARM use to prevent dangerous, environment destroying, green house grass producing, global warming grass fires then you can use the DPF every time you are on road!!!

the Dmax guys, unhooked the sensors and set them aside, put a strait DP back pipe on it and saved the stock exhaust for dealer visits. if you keep the sensors in it,it will sense a difference in pressure before/aft the DPF and go into constant regen

That most definitely would not be a good thing if the truck was constantly regenerating itself.

Go Greyhound, and leave your luggage with us. *maybe not intentionally*
