DOC/DPF Delete

There is a guy that goes to my church and would like to delete the DOC/DPF. I was wondering if you could do the delete and not run a programmer? He wants to keep the truck as close to stock as possible so he doesnt void his warranty. I know that deleting the DOC/DPF will void the warranty, but can't you just put the stock system back on if he had to take it to the dealer? Forgive me if I'm asking dumb questions, I'm still learning the 6.4L.

He can get a DPF-R kit that will just replace the DPF but not the DOC.

Tell him that if he wants to loose the pipes then he should go with Spartan or SCT. He can run low tunes or even just a delete tune. either way you run the risk of voiding the warranty.

His main worry is that if he runs any kind of programming that it will leave a footprint on his computer. It's a brand new truck with only 8,000 miles on it. He mainly wants to do some upgrades to get better fuel economy while still retaining the factory warranty.

You can take off a Spartan tuner and it will be very hard for a ford tech to find that their was ever a tuner on it. Spartan will get him around 3mpg and a ton of power. Ive had mine on since 4500 miles.

If he's scared of ford voiding his warranty because of a tuner he's gonna have to run a tuner if he's taking his dpf of anyways. Imo you might as well have the power and mpg if your gonna take that ***** off. If there's a tech that finds it on the ecm he will find it if the truck was tuned with 500 horse just the same as he'll find it with a stock delete file. Besides you get better mpg with a race file anyways.

And if he blows his engine don't go crying to Ford for warranty just get out the checkbook and get ready for a $12,000 repair bill. They will know it was tuned.

Pllllllllleeeeeassssssssssssssseeeeee stop with the obvious.

If you smoke, you run the risk of cancer. Thousands in medical bills. :
If you drink, you run the risk of liver disease. Thousands in medical bills.:
If you eat fatty foods, you run the risk of obesity and high blood pressure. Thousands in medical bills.:
If you run with scissors you run the risk of injury.

After years and years of tuners, and thousands of vehicles running them, is it really worth reiterating in every post ? As with the examples above, there is inherent risk that we consciously take.

What a great country that we all have choice . Pointed noted and will be archived for future reference

How do you figure that? There are TONS of guys that have tuned trucks that have blown up and have had no problem with warranty...

Talking with a ford service rep. he states that they cannot tell if you had a tuner on your truck. Just make sure its back to stock before you bring the truck in for service.

Thanks for all the replies guys. Looks like he is getting the delete kit and a Spartan with the 275 tune. This should be fun.
