http://www.DPFRacing.com - How Diesel Particulate Filters Rob Performance: A Diesel Particulate Filter, or DPF, is a device designed to collect diesel particulate matter or soot from the exhaust gas of a diesel engine. When the filter gets clogged, it triggers a "regeneration cycle". This cycle floods the catalytic converter full of diesel fuel and then ignites the fuel to burn off the trapped soot. This is what causes the reduction in power and drivability of the vehicle. In addition, any unburned fuel ends up in the crankcase mixed with the engine oil. Furthermore, excessive soot backs up into the turbo, requiring mandatory maintenance or damage will occur. Eventually, after 50,000 to 100,000 miles, the DPF will need to be replaced at the cost of approximately $2000.00. The result...less mileage, reduced power, contaminated engine lubricants and increased maintenance costs.
The DPF Delete Kit is the solution for 2007 or newer Ford 6.4L Powerstroke, GM / Chevy LMM 6.6L Duramax andDodge 6.7L Cummins Diesel engines. It combines two elements, the DPF Delete Pipe and the Diesel Race Tuner.
The DPF Delete Pipe: DPF Racing's newest in-house engineered product, the DPF delete race pipe, is a direct bolt on replacement that totally eliminates the factory Diesel Particulate Filter. All pipes are precisely manufactured with exacting tolerances out of high quality stainless steel for longevity.
The Diesel Race Tuner: Diesel race tuners in DPF equipped diesel pickup trucks will suppress the "regeneration cycle," without any "check engine" codes. The DPF Delete Pipe and Tuner allows the diesel pickup truck engine to regain the full horsepower, torque potential and reliability that diesel pickup trucks are known for.
