Then when you're done, you have a truck that runs good again, for another 100k miles or whatever and you still have less performance, higher egt's, worse fuel mileage and your wallet is just as light from buying new parts as the cost of deleting.
But you are saving the environment.....which is priceless!

A new DPF (Diesel Particulat Filter) is included in the $130 price of the kit linked to above. And yes the truck will run good again for another 8-10 years until the routine maintenance is due again. Without breaking any laws. If I was worried about the environment I would not be driveing an oversized truck pulling a 12,000 lb trailer around. I would be driving a Prius with a tent in the trunk. Go attack somebody else. I don't have time for know it all's that know nothing about being a law abiding citizen.

Ironically, even without all the emissions equipment, diesels are better for the environment than gas. Diesels emit less CO and CO2 than gas engines do which are the gases that are harmful to the environment. Diesels have more PM and NOx which are harmful to human health in large populated areas. US EPA emissions laws are less stringent on CO and CO2 emitted by gas engines, but are considerably more strict on NOx compared to other standards like the EU. To say the US EPA policies are bias against diesels and more lenient against gasoline emissions even though they harm the environment more is a gross understatement.

Better look again. That's not a DPF in that kit

I also have a 2007 6.7 CTD. You can’t just remove the EGR valve as it will throw the CEL on. You have the EGR cooler, the Diesel particulate filters, and the O2 sensors to remove and add the ECM programmer to compensate for all those missing devices.

Don’t know what other state laws are, but in Texas it is illegal to sell a vehicle on which the emissions systems have been modified. Keep the parts. You may have to reinstall to legally sell it.

Texas law prohibits any person from selling, offering for sale, leasing, or offering to lease any vehicle not equipped with all emission control systems or devices in good operable condition. Violators are subject to penalties under the Texas Clean Air Act of up to $25,000 per violation. Buyers are advised to have the vehicle checked for all required emission control devices prior to purchasing a new or used vehicle.

I'm surprised you still have the emissions equipment on your truck. This was by far the worst years for diesel emissions equipped trucks.

Having said that delete kits seam to be getting harder to purchase every year.

And if EPA stays on current course it is only going to get harder.
