Buddy has an 09 6.7L. He ordered turbo back 5" that hasn't made it here yet. I don't know anything about the DPF or where its located but he wants it off. Is it on the exhaust? How hard is it to remove? When I put his edge on I noticed it had some electrical connectors for the dpf.

Now for the egr, what does everyone do do delete it?

Thanks, Richard

Has your buddy checked his build date and does he have the Edge Race?

like Mega said we need to know the build date on his ECM. Look over the driver side front tire into the engine block for a big white sticker on it I think it is the 4th line down but anyway one of them is a date. if it is 3/04/09 or later we have a problem. and he is gonna have to have the edge race to do a dpf delete but that is about as far as he can go

build dates after 3/4/09 chrysler boot a boot loader "virus" in the ECM that prevents it form being able to be tuned by a programmer. Smarty and H&S are working on this but to date have not cracked the code yet. The edge RACE will allow you to delete the dpf but he will still have a CEL if he unplugs the egr. It is a soft code and the edge will clear it. The edge still works becasue it is a fooler box it tricks the ECM into thinking the performance parameters are different and that is how it makes more power. So it does not reprogram the ECM which is where the bootloader will either say PROTECTED ECM with the Smarty or will lock up and require a new ECM bought from Chrysler with other tuners. Just looking out for ya bud dont want to see anyone get Locked down

yeah bud what you need is 3 1/2 watt 100 ohm resistors, one for each egt that is in your factory exhaust. You simply solder them in from one prong to the other. Go to the home page and then the tech section here and go down to the DIY DPF budget thread. It will tell you to use 470 ohm resistors DO NOT that was the first ones we tried but soon found they didnt work for long use the 100 OHM in place of where it tells you the 470's. You can use the 330 and 110 for the Pressure switch like it tells ya too
