    Just remove it. It will not effect the engine. It’s completely separate. Just remove everything, straight pipe it or whatever and keep on trucking.

    Thanks DD. It's amazing that HUG doesn't even provide an online manual to figure out what the error bar means.

    As per @Diesel Dave, I removed the monitor and all the wiring and DPF and straight pipped mine. No issues at alll.

    Thanks guys. Got it out, really was easy. Didn't even have to get under the dash, as the bell wire easily pulled out from the firewall.
    Must've removed 150lbs of stuff. Still need to connect exhaust back to stack. HUG DPF.jpg

    Good deal. Mine was a Donaldson stand alone system not tied into the ECM. Just took it off and took the dash module off and pulled all the wires out. Put a factory muffler on now I'm thinking about straight piping it. No issues at all though
     
    Coffey Thanks this.

    Sad thing is someone paid $15,000 for this crap and now it's basically worth scrap price or ~ $14.25. Good thing is, if you don't live in CA, you can find some decent trucks they can't run anymore.
     
    Coffey and JRut Thank this.

    I paid $19k for mine, it was a R50, set up for big HP. Extremely clean set up. At the end I still came out ahead. My newer complaint truck I bought on a bid. Paid $22,500 and put about 6K in it for a 2014. Had a Recon ISX in it with about 350k. Picture in avatar.
