DPF Eliminator kits
What the fuck are you noggins thinking? I just watched a video on YouTube about how to eliminate the DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) on a Dodge truck using a small control module and "sensor emulators." Why are you people so fuckin' afraid of the DPF? Oh yeah, that's right. Getting a lot of codes dealing with regeneration of the DPF. Frankly, I think that most of the people who own pick up trucks equipped with diesel engines, don't need a diesel engine. They drive the things like they're cars and that isn't right. A diesel engine is designed and intended to be used for severe duty. Not taking the kids to soccer and pulling your damned fishing boat or camper a few weekends out of every year. If you're using that diesel for a daily driver to work and don't have a trailer of some sort hooked to the truck all the time, you're going to have problems with it. If you're having recurring problems with regeneration sourced codes, you're not using the truck properly. Trade it in for a truck with a gas engine. You'll be much happier. I've mentioned it before in previous posts, but I'm going to say it again. Your diesel pick up truck, despite the badges on it, is NOT a heavy duty truck. Quit putting stacks on the damned things, it looks stupid. Every time I see a pick up with stacks you know what I think? It's certainly not "Oh wow, that looks cool!" I think "What a dumb-ass. Just another wanna-be truck driver." You should hear these douche bags when they bring their "heavy duty" Dodge/Ford/Chevy truck into our shop. Boy do they howl when they find out how expensive diesels can be. The average Joe will never reap the benefits of a diesel engine. They don't work them enough or drive them enough. So stop tinkering with the diesel engines you probably don't need anyway.
