Anyone who thinks a dpf is doing a Diesel engine any good has got their head further in the sand

He didn't say anything about DEF being good for the engine....just that the emissions were better for the environment.

I have owned my current truck now for a couple of months, and thus far I have to admit the DEF and DPF are not the big scary monsters many want you to believe... Prior to buying this truck, I specifically avoided emissions systems like the plague, but they have really come along way the last few years, and the systems so far have been a huge non-issue.

And, if some day after the warranty expires, it proves to be an issue, it can always rust and fall off the truck going down the road later.

As a side note... I rode with a buddy of mine this weekend in an LBZ Duramax.... He has the 5 position EFI Live tune on it... Good Lord, on setting 5 that motor is an absolute scary fire breathing monster!

Only 62,000 miles to go until I can tune and not worry about warranty coverage!

You might want to look into a Smarty tuner. They swear that the tuner does not leave any footprints in the ECM. I ran a Smarty Jr. for a few years, some of it still under warranty and dealer never did say anything.

I have heard that... to be honest, I don't know if I will ever tune it... j have never ran into a situation where I wished I had more power.

I understand that.

My 07 has a few horses less than what there is now days. The power was ok with my original TT, but when I went to the 5er (double the weight) I wanted a little more power. That is when I went to the Smarty Jr.. Used the 70hp (towing) tune and was satisfied with it.

Using a 100hp, single injection tune with my EFI. Received a 1-2 mpg gain towing, 2+ mpg non-towing with this tune.

We put the EFI Live on our 06 Duramax dully.... it is scary on #5... and it can only be on there for a short burst before it melts everything down... I have plans to add the Pyrometer to it this summer....
it is one of the only two diesels we have left in the company...
86,000 miles on it when it blew both head gaskets... we had the heads decked, new heavy duty head studs, cold air intake, and the fuel rails opened up...
This thing is a fire breather now! Crazy fast! Too bad it had to cost me an additional $11k to have running again.
