From the 4th post on the first page of this threadWhat’s the point? Unless it’s just an inspection issue, if you take it to a dealership they can still data log it and find out what you’re up to.
Have you ever smelt the fumes from the def .it smells and is very bad for youjust a little less clean
Been searching for this type of tune since November when I purchased my truck.
Spent some time getting to know my truck and changing some things to make it just right.
For me deleting the dpf on prior diesels did not really add a lot and I prefer not to be rolling any coal.
Putting hot sticky exhaust gas back into the motor to reduce nox is where I have an issue and 1/3 my driving is around town.
I purchased the tune today and from all accounts I expect the same power increases as a tune/delete but I still have to pay for def.
You have to give me some time for driving results and I will put it on the dyno to prove it.
Look at post #4@garyjs
Thanks for your detailed and organized answers throughout this post. It makes it easier to keep up with conversation.
In your case, you elected to keep the SCR. Is the ONLY reason because you live in an area that has emissions testing and checkpoints? I am in central WI and will be pursuing your same set up with Proven Diesel. But in my area, there is no emissions testing of any kind. I would think it'd be awesome to not ever have to worry about DEF moving forward, but am wondering if there are any other implications of a SCR-disabling tune that I'm not thinking about? Besides overall smell?
If anyone else has any input, feel free to weigh in! I appreciate any insight. I'm a little new to the diesel world, but I do understand the fundamentals.
Hi Spewitt, it looks like post #4 is more aimed at explaining why he elected to keep the DPF. My question is about the SCR which to my knowledge is completely separate of the DPF. It gets very cold where I live, so aside from having to pay / worry about DEF, I'm considering deleting that system (in conjunction with a SCR-deleting tune).Look at post #4
According to him, I don't remember what post it was, but you're not really gaining anything from removing the filter and cats. Just sound and smoke. I, like the OP, don't want an EGR but don't really mind having a filter under my truck or a tank that I must fill with cat piss, but I also don't want to "roll coal" either. I plan on getting a clean tune soon and maybe a dirty one later. Haven't made up my mind yet.Hi Spewitt, it looks like post #4 is more aimed at explaining why he elected to keep the DPF.

Are you saying pedal commander adds HP? Or you use both pedal commander and idrive?Wow. Well i have the pedal commander and i run city 2 (just 2nd level above midway - has sport and sport plus levels after the city) and i run tune 2 (40hp i think?)
I tow good bit and trying to limit smoke cuz for some teason my truck loves spewing coal
He’s saying that he runs his Pedal Commander on City +2 and his SOTF tune on the +40HP setting.Are you saying pedal commander adds HP? Or you use both pedal commander and idrive?
you don’t get both sets of tunes, Gary got hooked up by accident LOL.I have read through this entire thread and am very interested. I'm also impressed at the level of thought put into some of the posts here. My question is (and I'm sorry if I missed it somewhere), is the EGR on Gary's truck physically blocked off...or does the tune electrically disable it? Also, if I purchase the same package with full support...will I have access to both emissions intact AND emissions deleted tunes, or was that part of the glitch in Gary's order? Thanks in advance for the help.
He also got a whole extra set of tunes by accident. So, clearly mistakes were made. That other guy on here who just bought same package still has his EGR on- so who knows what the actual standard is.Gary’s very first post stated:
“I did it today.
Proven Diesel emissions tunes egr off, dpf and scr on.
Full support package, sotf 30, 60, 90, 120, 150 bumps”
Maybe I’m misreading...
