Not possible. DEF, particulate filters, and EGR systems are all completely different. DEF is injected in the exhaust downstream from the engine to treat exhaust and has zero effect on the engine. EGR soot is what directly effects the engine with the soot recirculated.

Right Dave, but what I wonder about and haven't a clue, is if in a regen cycle (non DEF vehicle) with all the extra fuel that's being dumped in, could the EGR open and bring in considerably more soot? My oil is as dark as black paint even... right after a change.

You can always pull the EGR valve and see if there is any liquid down in the by-pass. They sell new ones on e-bay for 100.00 bucks just bought an OEM for one. They work off vacuum so I would be checking there, and please don't yell I'm not a wrench turner but read it on the Ford Forum.

Is that the same 6.0 by international that ford used? I thought only Ford used them but I guess that is not the case. Just a question? I have a 6.0 with 3.73 rear end and get maybe about 16 down hill, and 11.5 towing.

I have a 2015 Chevrolet 3500HD with the 6.0 and 410 rear. I also can average 18-19 MPG while on the highway maintaining 60-65 MPH.

hello night train, hey funny how just about every link turns into a diesels better than gas debate, don't even mention what trailer hitch you may buy but anyhow your original question about which CHEVY to buy, I have a 24fqsl when loaded with bike camping gear etc. weighs in about 8500 I had a 2014 1500 with the 5.3 and towing package and while it towed it, it struggled on steep grades and the suspension was suffering badly while towing, overall I was not feeling very secure towing with 1500, I upgraded to a 2015 chevy hd2500 with the 6.0 and I can tell you what a night and day towing experience this has been, towing with the hd2500 is truly a dream, mine is a double cab 4 wheel drive and I also average 16-19 on the highway and around 9-10 while towing, and yes I live in pa. where we have lots of hills and mountains, I would go with the hd2500 from my personal experience you will not be sorry, you did say chevy correct take care joe

So, OP, did you make a decision?
