Take a look at the DPF info thread located here:

http://www.duramaxforum.com/forum/07-5-2010-lmm-duramax-powertrain/74721-dpf-info-thread.html

Part 2. Removing it.

Now that you've learned all about the DPF, and you've decided to remove it from your truck, here's what you'll need to do.

Do Not, in anyway buy a "DPF Back" exhaust system. It will do nothing for you.. and it's a complete waste of time.

You will need a "tuner/programmer" that will be loaded into the truck, and will "delete" the DPF system from the engine. These are all sold as "for off road use only". And most tuners require you to register the unit, and sign a release saying that you understand that.

You will need to physically remove the DPF from the truck There are a couple ways to do this. You can either get a "DPF delete pipe" that only replaces the DPF, and keeps all the sensors plugged in. This option is the most costly, but does retain the most "stock" look.

You can also just get any exhaust system you want for a 2001 to 2010 Duramax (they're all the same). You just have to make sure you order what you have, Single Cab, Crew Cab, 6' bed, or 8' Bed.

There are many supporting vendors here that can recommend and sell you the appropriate products to fit your budget.

If you choose to pull the stock exhaust out, you will need to unplug the sensors that go from the exhaust back to the wiring. Just tape up the ends of the sensors, and zip tie them up out of the way.

That's basically it, it's not really hard to do, and it really doesn't take that much time, expect to spend an afternoon in the driveway. Having a buddy to help align up the exhaust will be of great help too.
