DPF Delete Kits?
 Login/Join

Hello All,

I own a 2010 Chevy 2500HD with the 6.6 Duramax and a DPF in it. Does a DPF delete kit eliminate the regen/b100 issue on these vehicles and should I therefore have one installed?

Thanks in advance,

Thomas

Read the discussion on DPF.

http://biodiesel.infopop.cc/ev...9605551/m/2721003282

The DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) is required by the EPA. If you are required to have EPA checking, then it will be checked.

If the filter is removed, then there is no need for regen cycles. The kit will fool your system to believe that everything is "normal" and that there is no need for regen.

It should decrease the problems with oil dilution.

So with a delete kit you think the Duramax should be b100 compatible?

You should look into a DPF delete AND EFI Live. www.efilive.com

EFI Live will let you open your stock ECM programming and turn off all DPF related events i.e. post injection...and tell all DPF related codes to "not report"

You can also buy a separate ECM from a professional tuner that has been pre-programmed for your needs... www.duramaxtuner.com

Hope this helps...

Thank you VERY much for your inputs!

I will contact these sources soon.

So, with the EFI Live I wouldn't even need a delete kit, since the ECM can be reprogrammed?

Essentially your DPF delete kit will contain.
  • blank pipe.
  • some method to either reprogram your ECM, or attaching an electronic device (possibly just a resistor) to fool it into thinking your DPF is ok and doesn't need a regen cycle.
the EFILive thing looked interesting, but sounded like a pain, especially their licensing the use by vehicle.

The optimum solution would be to find an injector that would mount somewhere, probably after the Turbo, that could perform the regen cycle without the in-cylinder injection.

I'm guessing that this will be available on some vehicles starting in 2011, but it is unlikely that it would be plug-in-play to retrofit it into older vehicles, and would still require ECM changes.

Thank God nobody had thought about putting computers in cars when my VW was made!!!

EFI Live is far from a pain. It can be intimidating to someone who has never experienced it before. I was there 3 years ago. I bought a subscription to a tune library, compared the changes to my stock tune, and started tweaking things to my liking. There's even classes if you really get into it. It comes with 2 licenses so you can immediately program 2 vehicles. I've reprogrammed my ECM and TCM (trans) with 1 license. I wanted to raise the shift points when towing my huge 5th wheel so I just did it. Each additional license is 99 bucks. This way you're not fooling your ECM you're reprogramming it. Keep in mind EFI Live is a tool...not a "can of tunes" like Edge, Banks, Superchips, Predator, etc....You make the tunes....you can watch what the engine and trans are doing by plugging in to the OBD2 and creating logs and maps of real world data while you're using the truck.

...and yes you could just reprogram the ECM for no regens...

Good luck,

Good stuff, good stuff,

How much will that set me back to run b100?
And do you guys think there ever WILL be a periodic emission testing to these engines that would obviously result in a fine in the case of a delete kit installed Eek
