Guys any input would be greatly appreciated. I have a '08 6.7, 6 spd auto truck. Yesterday on the way home from a fishing trip started running ruff at low speed. Talked to my mechanic and he figgures my DPF is probably sooted up. He told me to take it to the dealer. New DPf is $2,500 installed. So i guess it is time to do a DPF delete. I am not looking for any thing much beyond stock. I love the way this truck runs (when right). I am way past warranty so no worries there. What do you recommend, which is easiest to install, should I do anything esle while I am at it? Thanks in advance.
First of all is your overhead message center showing a warning for a plugged dpf? If it is plugging it show a warning of "80% plugged" or say "plugged dpf". Next check for codes to eliminated other possible issues. then you can make up yor mind.
Do you drive it hard? These trucks must be worked hard to prevent dpf plugging and they hate easy and/or stop and go traffic, sure recipe for plugging dpf.
I have 83,000 miles on my 07, completely stock and never had a plugged dpf or even a warning. Good luck
