EGTs are normal. Yes there is a drone. If you search on here there is a thread I made showing the difference a muffler makes in eliminating the drone.

Maybe I'm missing it but I look for threads that you started and I don't seem to find them one that talks about a difference a muffler makes in eliminating the drone. Is it overbearing the drone that you experience now ?

After installing the muffler I don't have a drone.

I'm straight piped right now with the stock tailpipe. Here's how the truck sounds at idle. Second video is at a higher idle speed.



I have the same muffler as Deuce40s sitting in my garage. Will probably put it on this spring.

Thank you for the video clips. My buddy told me that I should run an aftermarket air intake. I personally don't think it's necessary but this will be my 1st truck dropping the rocket ship off of He also try telling me that tyrant tunes aren't good that it affected his fuel mileage I think hes got a heavy foot

I think the gains with an aftermarket intake on these 6.7's is very minimal. I came from a 7.3 and that intake royally sucked stock, and there was definitely gains with aftermarket. I kept my intake stock on my truck, and I'm happy wit it.

Yes you'll need all new coolant. I lucked out on timing when I deleted, as It was approaching time for new coolant anyways.

Other common issues associated with DPF delete kits are those with the regeneration process. There is extended passive regeneration occurring when on long drives. This is initiated automatically when there is an increase in temperature. Since most owners of diesel-powered trucks operate in urban environments, so naturally, they donít get enough open-road time. Thatís why manufacturers have also included active regeneration cycles in most diesel engines. This active regeneration cycle injects raw diesel into the exhaust system, thereby raising the temperature and initiating regeneration. But if either the active or passive regeneration is interrupted, the incineration will not be completed. The particles that were not properly burned will then clog the DPF. The best-case-scenario is it will result in backpressure in the exhaust system, which will then lead to reduced engine efficiency, lower mileage and increased fuel consumption. The worst-case-scenario is it can result in your truck going into Ďlimp modeí, which what you donít really want because it will force you to bring the truck into a repair shop for a thorough cleaning or even replacement of the DPF. And as you know, that will be worth thousands of dollars in unwanted expenses.

Patrick. Deleting is the main reason, for eliminating all of that garbage. There will be zero regens, therefore.....nothing to plug up.

Bohen, check out Shibby Engineering. I believe they make a complete plug kit for our engines. They've been mentioned a few times in different threads here.
