I was seeing the "cleaning exhaust filter" message come on way too often in my 2012 6.7.  It seemed like it would happen about every 100-150 miles (new it did it about every 300 miles).  My thoughts were that the DPF was getting plugged.  My mileage was in the toilet because of this.  I put the plates over the egr cooler, went with 4" downpipe back exhaust and tuned with semi custom tunes.  I don't have to add DEF anymore and my mileage went from 14-15 to 18-20 mpg.  I didn't do this for the power gains, although they are nice.  I did this around 75,000 miles and have 90,000 on it now.  I was extremely nervous at first, but I'm glad I did it.  I did everything myself in my driveway in about 4-5 hours.

How often did your truck get out on the highway for a good 20 or so mile run?

Im going to follow the same plan this summer. Just a delete pipe in place of the DPF, egr block off plates, and mild tuning. Im thinking no more then 100hp, probably more like 60 and ill be happy realistically.
I mean really, stock power has never left me wanting, I am just tired of the regen thing, and tired of fighting a DEF tank that doesn't take fluid worth a darn.

@jackelope it has 104k. Did that recall expire in 12/18 though? First I have seen of that. Would be nice if it could be a warranty fix.

An exhaust bp valve can be deleted.  Exhaust can be freed up.  I had 2001 f350 7.3.  Tuned it with full free turbo back exhaust.  Was a great engine but ran out of fuel injector uumph after about 425hp aprox.  Trans are total garbage, get a manual...

You should still be covered. Bring it to me if you want, I'll get it taken care of.
@JH

That 12/18 part just means if you were over the 120k mark or the time when that recall was released, it would be covered till 12/18.

I had a good mixture of town and hiway/freeway driving.  I would see the cleaning exhaust filter message come on 3 times on our trips to our ranch in Idaho (thats 3 times one way, so 6 times round trip) its about 350 miles one way.
