So i have recently got back into the Duramax game (about 4 years ago :ROFLMAO:) from having a slightly modified LB7. I told myself i was not going to delete the LML and leave it stock but i think we all know how that goes. Anyways i have about 75K on the truck and i was telling myself i would wait until at least 100K if i was going to delete it ever. Well ive been hearing from other buddies who own diesels that the EPA/Government is going to start really cracking down on the deletes and i should go ahead and get it deleted before the government puts a stop to this.

Basically asking what everyone else is hearing about EPA cracking down as if they will be able to stop every diesel mechanic to no longer be able to delete these trucks.

thanks for the insight in advance

U can do it u just have to search a little make some calls I did it last week with no problem he’ll I got a exhaust in the states and when buying it the dealer ask me if I was interested in his tuning. I said I am doing a full delete thought u couldn’t do that. any more guy just started laughing 😆 so it is still very available

Just deleted mine last week as well. Have about 200 miles on it and I cant decide what i like more, the sound, the power/torque or the 21 MPG so far.(Street tune)
Pieces are still out there to do it.

I'm glad to get some positive feedback. I was concerned that i was not going to be able to delete it. Just made me realize how bad i really wanted to get it done once i heard i may not be able too. I made some phone calls over the weekend and had everything ordered. Just curious if you guys did a lift pump (FASS or Airdog) as well when deleting it?

I did an air dog a month or so back.

A lift pump with filter system is a good idea. IMO

I used to have a 2011 3500, sold it 5 or 6 years ago and just recently bought a 2016 Denali. Don't know why everybody is saying "YoU Can'T dEleTe aNyMoRe!!!", took me about 15 minutes of hard interwebz searching to find and purchase a SOTF delete and tune kit.

I think a lot of old timers expect to just hop on Amazon or some other PUBLIC FORUM PAGE and purchase grey/black market items??? Do a little digging and understand that the game has changed. A lot of these places are now setting up shell companies as "distributors", then closing the doors after a certain amount of time and "finding a new distributor". Little bit of patience and a lot of research will get you what you are after.

A very, very ,very close friend of mine just purchased and installed a 200HP full delete and EGR removal kit this week.

Knocks the "old timers" about Amazon and PUBLIC FORUM PAGE and then posts info on a public forum. You can't make this up....

I just added tcm running. Goes into lock up a little earlier but outside that I havent noticed anything else. Tuner did tell me the tune was mainly for wot.

Who did you use for trans tuning and what was noticeable about it?

I'll have to give them a try. At first I thought the trans shifted softer so I loaded the stock tune back in and I was wrong.

Are you using motor ops street or econ tune and how do you like it?

Ebay has everything you need. Deleted my lml 20k ago with a "eBay" delete kit and truck has been running outstanding since. 20mpg. No engine lights. Cleaner oil (much much cleaner). All emissions removed. 1200$

Also- if your going to buy Tcm tuning, don't. You WILL have to set it back to stock when you decide to build the trans one day. Trans builders will not touch one that has a tune on it.

I have soft I run the light tow tune it’s great wakes the truck up a good bit. The tcm tune increases line pressure also to help the extra hp most good trans guys have their own tcm tuning also
