The 6.7-liter Ford Powerstroke is a widely recognized and respected diesel engine that is known for its impressive power and durability. Two commonly discussed modifications are DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) delete and EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) delete tuners. By removing or disabling certain emission control components, these modifications are intended to improve engine performance and efficiency.
DPF delete tuners are aftermarket devices or software modifications that disable or bypass the DPF system. The rationale behind these modifications is to help improve the power output and fuel consumption of the engine, as well as reduce maintenance costs associated with DPF regeneration and potential plugging.
EGR delete tuners, like their DPF counterparts, are modifications aimed at disabling or bypassing the EGR system. The primary motivation behind EGR delete tuners is to prevent intake manifold plugging, lessen the potential for engine damage from varnish deposits, and improve overall engine performance.
