I know it is ridiculously expensive to do right now, but just wondering how many members here have done it so far. If you have, did you get tunes for it as well or strictly a delete?

Theres a few floating around on other diesel sites. Dd and compd. Theres some on fb but I dont have social media. There is a nasty white rclb with a hoodstack on yt. With all the recent EPA crack downs in the west coast alot of people arent openly talking about deletes anymore.

Nic. It harms the environment.

Obviously we all drive stock trucks with additional emissions equipment

Yeah I have been outfitting my truck with more emissions then it came with, I felt it was to dirty even with the emissions so I spent some money to add more systems to try and achieve zero emissions. Two particulate filters is the way to go. I even had ocasio cortez come to my house to come check out my kitty litter box air filtration devices I constructed for old recycled chevy Ls engines.

Check out DuramaxMatt on YouTube, he talks about his quite a bit.

I’ve been watching his videos on the Delete. He is currently having issue with the “keep driving” message coming up on the dash. He is working with Motorops on a fix for it.

There was a guy on here not long ago from Canada, eh, who had deleted his. I think the thread was called like fresh deleted l5p or something like that.

Edit: see he isn't in Canada lol.

The funny thing is the Ford and Cummins guys are deleting like crazy and talking about it openly. Strangely enough It’s only a issue here.

I have mine deleted.
Have you had any issues since deleting it? Whose tunes are you running? Did you do any other performance mods or just delete the dpf / DEF?

Any other info you would be willing to share would be appreciated.

How much it cost in total (with shop costs)
I do not know with shop costs as i did this myself. But I've been told it varies from shop to shop but i seen anywhere from $1500 - $2000 to have it installed at a shop.

For just parts and tuning it was around $6600. Mainly the cost of the tuning, parts were only like $2200

Some people say its not worth the money but for the power these trucks make vs what it will cost to make an LML comparable to an L5P I've read it is almost the same or more to make an LML comparable to a deleted L5P.

How much does an L5P blow smoke at 'spritited' acceleration or under load towing?

My tune is fairly clean, it might blow a little puff and clean right up. this is with me hauling a 30ft trailer weight around 10klbs total.

Even aggressive acceleration it blows a puff and cleans right up without a trailer.

I've had nothing but issues with mine since deleting it. I've had my "Service Exhaust Fluid System" light on now for a week with no fix in sight. I keep getting sent different files and solutions to try with no luck. There are no DTCs. Had it at the dealership today to see if they could offer any insight but are unable to do anything with the unlocked ecm. I'm likely going to try a different company for tunes as this one is not working for me at all.
