New here and brand new to diesels! My question is I want to do an exhaust but noticed Theirs a bunch of sensors through the whole exhaust what can I do without throwing a code? I'm in california and don't want to deal with the new smog laws so trying to keep it as legal as possible. Pleaseeeeee help I want exhaust so bad to bring out the beautiful diesel sound

Legal? Dpf back only...won't help anything for sound or performance, though. Otherwise race tuner and rip stuff off or SIMS are the other less-than-legal options.

Should have went with a 2012 or older. Nothing out yet for the 2013 models and there may never be due to the EPA cracking down on the aftermarket folks. The 6.7L trucks have never had the "diesel sound" like the 5.9s.

Yep, the 6.7 is quiet. In fact, all you have now is a resonator instead of an actual muffler. All is does is eliminate cabin drone. Most agree, if you want to increase the actual sound level you need to delete the emissions system and run a 5 inch turbo back exhaust. Also, the OEM resonator and tailpipe are excellent. If you want it to look cooler, just add an exhaust tip.

YOUR SOL bud, should have done some research before buying the truck...all you can do now is wait and hope that people eventually come with deletes for the 2013 trucks.

No programmers exists for the 2013's at this point. I'm sure this will change in the future but for now, not a whole lot you can do to a 2013 performance wise.

If I had a 2013 and the mod bug itch, I would dump my money into the suspension and a new set of tires or wheels. Enjoy the new truck. Then come back a year or so and revisit the performance products out there for the 2013s. just my 2 cents.

Agreed. There will always be delete options because there will always be an off-road, race and overseas market. So there will be a emissions compliant version and one that's not. It will be THERE in time. :)

Kinda like trying to do a human brain transplant. Highly unlikely. So much of the surrounding electronics and hardware are dependent on the 2013 ECM.
