I’m struggling to find somebody that still sells a pipe to replace the dpf. Worst case I’ll have to get one made.

Maple leaves? As in Canadian companies? Motorops and the other Canadian sellers i spoke with said they can’t ship the delete pipes to the US for the LML anymore. They can still sell tuning, but not the “race” pipes.

I found the pipe on eBay but don’t really want tunes from motor ops. Rather go with someone else

Why wouldn’t you want tunes from Motorops? The only brands I would go with are ATP, DuramaxTuner, PPEI, or Motorops. Motorops is the only one left still making delete tunes.

I took my truck to Duramaxtuner and didn’t like the way they handled my repair. I know they’re affiliated with Motorops so I won’t use them

Beggars can't be choosers when it comes to deleting your truck with how things are going. I'd order the hard parts off Ebay & get my tuning from Motorops. I haven't heard anything negative about them or their customer service, but hey to each is their own. You must hate duramaxtuner & motorops pretty bad to leave that restricting potato cannon and EGR in tact that is technically decreasing the life of your thousand dollar truck. Good luck to you

you may be able to get a resonator or muffler to replace the DPF with that would be the same length more or less depending on where you cut. The DPF plays a big role in noise reduction so you may find that its obnoxious without it anyway.

Given the current crack down though, your options are greatly reduced for US companies, and im not familiar with any other Canadian companies besides motor ops.

i feel like there affiliation with motor ops is kind of like Mcdonalds affiliation with cattle farmers. You dont blame one for the failures of the other. As far as i am aware they are completely separate companies that happen to share a common interest, and work with each other for the good of the customer and there own interests. I dont believe one has a stake in the other though.

Ill add also that my interaction with motor ops was, while not perfect, vastly better than i anticipated. There was a couple parts that were not exactly right for my truck, i did have to source a couple things myself (wrong down pipe flange ect) but the support from them was excellent. While im sure there are hotter tunes out there, im pretty pleased with what motor ops did for me.

There are more Canadian companies that advertise the Flo Pro race pipe, but they say they are discontinued if you call them. I guess Flo Pro must have stopped making them for the LML or they aren’t allowed to mail them back to the US. Either way, it is frustrating.

You could...in theory....I read this on the internet...if your handy with a welder
Order a pre-bent “muffler delete pipe” for a 2001-2005 off eBay, cut the factory pipe just behind the 4 bolt flange and a couple inches behind the DPF, clamp or weld the muffler delete pipe onto the factory 3.5” just behind the flange, then on the other end weld on a 3.5” to 4” adapter, and weld that to a short piece of flared 4” pipe, (adapter, 4” pipe and clamps available at any commercial truck parts house) which will slip over and clamp onto the remaining factory tail pipe...or you could weld that too just depends on if you need to put it back stock for inspection. I’m in Kentucky and as long as it will roll down the road under its own power and has 1 working brake light your pretty much good to go haha:haha: As far as sound with DPF removed, it’s not much louder than stock. Somebody that knows these trucks would know it’s not stock but I think the average person wouldn’t. It has a nice low rumble and I’ve not towed with it yet but it doesn’t seem to have any drone either.

I’m almost scared to say who actually sold the delete pipe. I feel like somebody from EPA must cruise these boards. The eBay route worked

yea.... i like the guys that work on my truck. Id love to promote there business because they do good honest work..... but im not about to go get them investigated by the EPA. I think it would be nuts to think that there was NOT someone reading through this and other forums to find better ways to fight the delete world. If theres one thing the government is great at its collecting data.

I’m all for the environment, but our diesel trucks aren’t the big issue
