:yeah:   You are correct. :chuckle:   They are much much better now.  Agreed.  The price is the killer!   475/1000 are more than anyone will likely ever need.  Actually I do not think its safe for these new trucks to tow 35000lbs?  I am stuck at 2007.5, the year it all changed!   I am liking the new 7.3 gasser and that truck would probably do what I need quite well, except for mpg maybe!  400hp and 800tq is all I need honestly.  I am old school as well so biased in the simplicity of things and in the prospect of doing the work at home...

Right on. The MPG will be a huge downside to the 7.3. Still havenít seen one in person. Weird.

Most places wonít even sell the delete kits anymore. EPA has been cracking down hard.

One of my city accounts and at least 2 of my construction accounts have stopped ordering trucks with Diesel engines at this point. Seeing more and more gas powered bigger trucks lately. F350 and bigger I mean. Mostly because of idle time issues and short trip/stop and go issues. Canít shut them off in the middle of a regen and they donít get driven far enough to go through a full cycle. If they see the highway or a load now and then they tend to be fine. One city account I have has a standing rule with their crews. Once a week the diesel trucks get driven 30 freeway miles to fully burn themselves out.

Full disclosure is we suck at selling trucks. Have not had a lot of success selling to fleet accounts. We do a good service business but the sales lags. Thatís probably why we havenít seen the 7.3ís yet.

Keep in mind with deleting itíll hurt your trade in value. Private sale may not be an issue though. Dealerships canít sell a rig thatís been deleted.  They have to put it all back together first. Theyíll take that cost off of your trade in

I'm not sure it holds true with the powerstroke, but deleting will cause engine to be very slow to warm up on the cummins,  annoyingly slow.

I guess I really hadn't consider the negatives of deleting it as everyone always suggests to do it.

I am throwing an error code currently which is for the Diesel Exhaust Fluid Heater control. I figure if I have to put money into something I might as well open it up. I'm not overly concerned about the resale value of the truck. I own it and plan on keeping it until it dies. What are the other negatives of deleting it?

I am located in Bothell.

Turn your exhaust brake on or enable High idle (same thing in a factory EB truck)
