AFE DPF-Delete Powerstroke Exhaust
The aFe Large Bore HD DPF-Delete down pipe back race exhaust system eliminates the use of the restrictive diesel particulate filter (DPF) for maximum performance. This free flowing exhaust system is constructed out of durable 4" aluminized steel and uses bayonet style hangers and band clamps for a clean installation. This system comes complete with all tubing, muffler, bayonet hangers, band clamps, and is finished off with a high luster polished 304 stainless steel, rolled, slash cut tip. This system requires the use of a controller with a DPF-delete function.
This is a "Race Only"
product section used solely for competition. Its use is limited to
closed-course racing that is formally sanctioned by a recognized racing
organization. Any other use, including recreational off-road use, could
be in violation of local, state and federal laws.
What is the DPF?
DPF is an acronym for Diesel Particulate Filter. A DPF works in
conjunction with the oxidation catalyst and EGR valve to remove a
majority of the NOx, particulate matter (think black, cough-inducing
soot) and unburned hydrocarbons from burned diesel fuel. Soot is a
natural byproduct from the combustion of diesel fuel. Inside the DPF is a
porous honeycomb structure that catches the soot as it passes through.
After the soot builds up over time, the onboard computer controls fuel
injection to allow unburned fuel to enter the filter at measured
intervals where it flares off and generates increased temperatures that
incinerate the accumulated soot. The result: Soot is chopped by over 90-percent.
What do I need?
Step 1: EXHAUST - Select a Complete DPF Delete Exhaust System or DPF Delete Race Pipe
Step 2: ELECTRONICS - You must select an electronic performance unit for the exhaust to work properly with your vehicle.
You MUST use DPF delete capable electronics when removing the DPF off
of the vehicle. In addition, running DPF delete tunes without removing
the DPF will result in engine codes and filter blockage.

Installed this system on an 08 F-350 farm pickup. Less than an hour to install and fit was perfect. Sounds great. Highly recommend.

Pipe made my truck sound 100 times better. Easy installation with socket, laying on ground and elbow grease. The performance I am seeing is amazing!!!
