The Best DPF Delete Kits

DPF or Diesel Particulate Filter is used as a part of the exhaust system and traps smoke or soot produced by the combustion of the engine. It is designed to collect diesel particulate matter or soot from the exhaust gas of a diesel engine. A DPF is necessary to meet the emissions standards that started around 2007 for most diesel manufacturers. Owners of 6.4 Powerstroke, 6.6 Duramax  and 6.7 Cummins trucks noticed an immediate increase in the performance and horsepower of their engines after removing their DPF. There are disadvantages though to having DPF in the system. It reduces performance due to the extra backpressure and reduces fuel economy due to the backpressure. You will also need to clean the filter. This is why DPF delete kits have become common to people who want to avoid these issues.

The DPF delete kit consists of several parts. One is a straight exhaust pipe to replace the DPF and the other part is the component used to reprogram the engine controller(DPF Delete Pipe & Diesel Race Tuner respectively). If you are looking for a DPF delete kit, here are the most recommended ones to get.
