Can I go to a exhaust shop and just have the DPF removed and a pipe welded in? I don't really want to change the sound of the truck and would like to keep it quite like stock.

I do know I will need a tuner.

Thanks and sorry if this has been answered. I am new to this and searched over an hour for the answer here and did not find it.

Again, thanks!

It is a 2012. I visited the XDP website and it's very confusing as to how many SIMS you get with the pruchase. It doesn't say at all actually. Picture shows 3 but the thread says to buy 4. I dunno.

Doing this will net the same benefits as the more expensive alternatives?

Will it throw codes without a tuner?

You can simply just unplug the EGR? Why doesn't everyone just do that.

Buy a smarty jr or an H&S tuner and tune it. Dump the whole exhaust system with a turbo back 5" kit with a muffler. Better mpg, better EGT, no CEL.

I am pretty sure it is 4 total.

To a degree. If you get a turbo back system I also think you are removing the CAT which will yield less restriction. What I would do is have your DPF removed and a pipe and flange bolted in in case you want to go back.

Yes it will, and will most likely derate. You will at least need sims.

Being that you have a 2012, no you cannot. The truck will code and derate without a tuner. 2007-2010 and some 2011 trucks you could do that with, but around when the H.O. motors came out, you are not able to do that anymore...
