Your truck will definitely get some more "pop" to it under acceleration. I just did mine today with the Edge Juice W/A system and it was immediately noticeable upon entering the freeway this evening. I'd suggest cleaning your MAP sensor when you do the project, i'm pulling mine to clean tomorrow.

Aside from that, MPG's should increase for sure. A local guy here with the XRT that did the deletes said he went from 13 MPG to 17 MPG around town.

I have 7k miles on my truck and just did the deletes. If I wasn't fully confident it was in the best interest of the health of a $6000.00 engine, I wouldn't of even considered it.

The EGR is part of a system where exhaust gas is re-circ'd through the system to get re-burnt as part of the new emissions BS. Ultimately it gunk's the engine up more from what people have seen and just unplugging it has yielded up to 2 more MPG for some. Doing the deletes, which you can get a kit from multiple vendors on this site, basically removes the entire system.

They say that because it is removing an emissions part. That way if you are popped by Johnny Law Whoever, the company can say it was designed for "off-road use only" and therefore is not their fault. That's about the sum of it.

well the chances that the cop really knows what a dpf is is slim to crap. my friend is on truck squad for dmv in CT and he says that he has never even heard of a dpf or even Bluetec.

You will be very happy with your truck after the deletes and you add the programer. Its like driving awhole new truck. And your truck will love you because it will have nice fresh air :)

I did mine at 4000 miles, i now have like 26,000 of pretty hard miles and i have had 0 problems.

So I really have nothing to worry about as long as I don't leave the chip turned up and rag on it
do I need any aftermarket gauges

I took mine out at 13,000 miles, and now have 37,000 on it... no issues.

Ran with the EGR Crossover Plugged/EGR Motor Unplugged for about 22,000 miles, with zero issues (except for a EGR cooler gasket leak)

Now 1,000 miles ago I added a black maxx, and completely deleted the EGR system, and installed the wastegate... truck has never seemed happier.

In fact it smokes far less with the Black Max than it did with the Edge....
