Default DPF Delete without tuner?

Has anyone done a DPF delete and not used a tuner but used the "sensor foolers" instead?

I am contemplating either doing the delete on my current truck (don't really need any more power - especially after Tim Holt's post on the 68RFE and already have gauges, just want the fuel economy) or upgrading to a 2011 with 800ft-lb and having my dealer do the delete for me (they are a very Mod friendly bunch).

and having my dealer do the delete for me (they are a very Mod friendly bunch).

The dealer could loose his dealership for doing this, and/or, could face criminal charges from the feds.

You, as an individual can purchase the DPF delete kit with the sensors, they work great or, you could make up your own kit (4" pipe cut to the right length with two bungs welded on to accept the fuel lines). If you do it this way, you won't have much cash into it but you will set the cell on the cluster.

I have done two myself. I removed the 2 cats and the DPF, replacing them with pipe and bungs, then reconnected the fuel lines. The cell on both trucks set, indicating a sensor failure. (who cares) Mileage on both trucks stock was around 12MPG and around 24MPG after the mod. The computer will not tell the truck to regen so there are no worries about dumping more fuel into the exhaust.

Hope I explained this well enough for you.

I am not trying to do this the cheap way, I am looking at using something like what FloPro sells.

They have the proper DPF delete pipes and sell some DPF delete electronics that plug into the stock sensor harness and supposedly only require turning the key to the on position for 10seconds without starting to "fool" the computer.

Can anyone confirm how well this works?

As far as the dealership issue, if they are willing to do it and back it up then what do I care, it is their livelyhood on the line. And they have been doing this since it first became cool to mod a diesel.

The DPF delete kits work as they are intended to and improve the economy. As long as the dealer is willing to put them on...Better do the EGR delete while your at it.

YES Do the EGR delete also. I can't wait to have mine off. I have the EGR un/plugged and with just this I'm seeing 1.5 to almost 2 more MPG I'm looking at the H&S tunner.

He is in Canada so I don't think the Feds are going to care too much. But remember that you can void warranties. If this truck breaks down somewhere else could be a really expensive tow to get to you friendly neighborhood dealership. I owned a 2007 6.7 and know first hand that those fixes are really expensive when not under warranty. That's why i traded it in for the truck i have now and a minivan for the wife. I prefer the minivan. They need to make one with a cummins that can pull my camper.
