Ok, I know there is a million posts about this, but I have a few more questions that I cant seem to find the answer to. First, I just installed the banks economind, and obviously there is not the DPF delete option so was this a mistake on choice of tuners or is there a way around that? Second, what are the two lines that come in before and after the DPF and what do you do with them once you have removed it? my guess is they are fuel lines? What seems to be the general cost of getting all parts to make this happen?

I'm pretty sure banks doesn't make any products to delete the dpf. The two lines are for diff pressure to see when the dpf needs cleaning. I detached the lines and reinstalled them into the pipe for storage. I also removed all cables at their plugs and used cloth and electrical tape to wrap plugs on the truck. Hope this helps!

If you want to keep the Banks, you can get a Quadzilla S2 and run it on the stock no DPF setting, then reinstall the Banks and you will be set. Like mentioned above you leave the lines in the DPF, then follow the lines to the box under the bed and disconnect there.

You mentioned the quadzilla S2, I have a quadzilla II, is it the same? Just that its late and I had my 07.5 LMM in the shop today for a plugged DPF, I ran it on 110hp last weekend and it plugged it. Want to delete the DPF but not sure if my Quadzilla II has DPF delete option?

Thanks for the info., got truck back, dealer claimed DPF needed to be blown out, said to drive it like stated in manual (above 30mph for 20min.). Checked tonight under truck, flanged in front of DPF, will make it easy. Question, does the cadyletic converter produce much back pressure, didn't notice if it was flanged?

You can get a DPF delete pipe that just gets rid of the DPF. It bolts right in to the flanges before and after the DPF, pretty simple. In my opinion, I wouldn't keep the cat. It kills most of the sound, and you won't get as big of benefit as you would from going pure straight pipe. It's not hard to get the cat out anyway.

Let me know if I can help!

Jesse, I installed the banks economind a couple of weeks ago. After doing that I kind of decided that I want to do a DPF delete. I know, should have thought about that first. is there a way to keep the Banks, and fix the DPF cycle. Then of course pop in the delete pipe? Would the banks even operate proprely if I did that?

There definitely is a way. Most people buy a Quadzilla stealth 2 tuner since it's the cheapest DPF delete tuner, and they run it on the sock/no DPF tune, and use the Banks for power. That way you have no DPF, and no codes! As for getting rid of the DPF, you can get a DPF delete pipe that just gets rid of the DPF and leaves the rest of the stock exhaust, or for about $10 more you can get a full 4" turbo back system from MBRP which will sound awesome and perform great. But if you need to swap the DPF in and out, the delete pipe would probably be best.

Let me know if you have more questions!

In reference to using a quad s2 for the stock no DPF tune, and then the banks, if my truck is set to stock, then load the quad no dpf tune, then instead of banks I use my edge evo(old style no dpf delete)for monitoring and power... would the same be accomplished or is the edge evo a whole other ballgame?

No you can only use the Edge for gauges, you can't program it and use the Quad for programming as well. You can only have one tune in the ECM at a time, so if you're wanting to remove the DPF, you'll be stuck with the Quadzilla tunes and only using the EVO as gauges.

Hey Jesse, can you PM a quote on a tuner and delete pipe only. I want to be able to remove and reinstall the DPF as needed for inspection. Around here (East Texas) if I leave the factory megaphone sticking out the back chances are they would probably never even notice. Last inspection (last month) they didnt even look under the truck. Also, with having the Banks Economind plus a DPF delete I should see some serious MPG increase right, like some prior 07 mileage. Maybe get what the LBZ's are getting if not better? I think if I leave the CAT, worst case I can play dumb and say "what the heck is a DPF" or "that is it, right?" After all the truck was used when I bought it. All of this of course is sought after good mileage. If I'm not going to see gains in MPG then it kind of defeats my goal.
