Default 6.7 powerstroke Delete

Hi Everyone,

My warranty will be up in august for my 6.7 power stroke. I am looking to delete the truck. What options do I have? I am looking for the best bang for my buck. I do not want a display tuner either, just want to flash it and walk away.

Thanks!

Sct x4 with custom tunes flo-pro exhaust you can do either a delete pipe or full exhaust 4" or 5" muffler or no muffer then for egr I'd do sinister kit or flo-pro.Cold air intake is up to you if you run higher hp tunes you need a cold air intake or the air filter will suck it's self shut S&B is good and so is afe and no-limit fabrication intake is nice.

what year is truck

I use sct with river city diesel tunes

Doesn't Connecticut have vehicle emissions testing? Tamper with the emissions equipment and the vehicle may not pass or might be turned away at a test center. Also kills resale since a deleted truck can't be traded at most new car dealers.

Seems like the downsides are bigger than any advantage.

I know plenty of people that have traded or sold deleted trucks without any issue or hurting resale value of you see what all the emissions crap does to a diesel engine you will under stand why people delete im a diesel mechanic by trade so I see what the emissions does to the motor nothing but problems after problems.

All my diesel trucks are deleted

I’ve deleted every diesel I’ve owned within 1,000 miles. Best thing ever.

PPEI EZLYNK has been my weapon of choice lately.

If you need anything shoot me a DM. I can help point ya in the direction.

I have been afraid to do that because of the warranty. Doesn't if void the warranty if they find out?

thanks for all the reviews guys.

My truck is a 2015 lariat package. As stated above, all the emissions they put on diesel trucks are killing them. Its like trying to breath or blow through a straw, very restrictive and will cause harm.

My last truck, 7.3 power stroke has a 5" turbo back exhaust and always passed emissions.

SCT X4 with tyrant tow tune, egr block off plates and pro flow delete pipe from no limit diesel was $778. For another $125 you can add 3 hotter tunes. Alligator diesel has another tune pack/combo a little cheaper.

Not true at all about the trade in. I have never even heard of one asking about it. If you are worried though, you can keep your parts and se it back to stock. I am almost certain they are not going to do anything to check on it. I dont know about the emissions testing though. We dont have emissions testing here in NC on diesels. I also have not noticed any hits on resale.

With the F250 6.7L you can return everything back to stock before trading or selling it. The particulate filter is a separate bolt in part.

Just traded my 6.7 in and had to sign a form stating no alterations were done to the emissions. Brandon Ford Fl.

Different spin on this same issue. I just deleted my 2011 F350 because I had to. Not because I wanted to.

Original owner. Right at 100k miles. I was very satisfied with performance and reasonably satisfied with economy with factory emissions in place and liked the fact that there was no noticeable diesel smell. Would have left everything alone, but truck started "making oil" (diesel fuel dilution) about 10,000 miles ago. My regular mechanic told me following an oil change that the oil level seemed high and that there was a faint smell of diesel fuel. Suggested taking it to the dealer or a local, independent diesel specialist.

I started at the dealer. I'm out of warranty based on time, but thought they'd have the most info and knowledge. They put their "best diesel mechanic" on it. He told me directly (I spoke with him, when he was done) that he thoroughly checked everything out and that there was "no problem". He said that he checked with the factory and on line resources and found "no history whatsoever" of the 6.7's making oil. He said nothing to worry about, just drive it.

I then took it to the local, independent diesel shop. Had them change the oil (even though the oil in it had less than 1,000 miles) and set exactly at capacity (13 quarts, I believe). I drove it 3,000 miles and brought it back for them to drain and check oil quantity. Up 2 quarts, to 15 total. We both began researching and concluded that the most likely source of the diesel fuel dilution was regeneration, so I deleted.

Post-deletion, gas mileage is up about 20% and performance is improved, though I had no complaints about performance before deletion. There is a mild diesel smell outside of the truck at idle.

I suppose I could have continued to drive it for a while and then traded it in without deleting or fixing the problem. But I would not have been comfortable doing that, so that wasn't an option for me.

Other than this issue I love the truck. And my guess is that by the time I'm done driving it the miles and age will be so high that the deletion won't matter.

I would have no problem telling them exactly what I did and they could decide if they want my business.

I have deleted every diesel truck I've had since 02, fords and chevys. Always better fuel econ, always more power. I just put them back to stock prior to trading. Never any issues.

Another route if you might be trading it in anytime in the future would be a simple block-off plate and a tune to take car of any CEL issues.

I just finished up an EGR block off on my Duramax and not only does it seem it have more power, but fuel mileage is up 2 MPG. Not too shabby for a $12 piece of stainless steel and a couple of hours under the hood.

Do the deletes and just sell out right when the time comes. Very easy to sell a deleted truck privately, and for more money.
