    That's what I'm referring to, before the whole aftertreatment phase came into play it was possible to delete certain components with not a lot of consequence. What you've described is altering pretty much everything downstream.

    Well OTR is a huge operation and they have fleets of trucks running their deletes no problem. It seems mine is just being a #####. They are overnighting me a new delete kit with adjusted parameters to see if that resolves my low power issue. I think my turbo actuator is on it's way out the door cuz I have had a few instances before the delete where the truck refused to do rapid warm-up and times where descending a grade with the VEB (jake) on my boost would start bouncing causing the cab to buck and bronk until I turned the VEB off and turned it back on.

    Pull your DPF ad DOC cans, hollow them out, right to the sheet metal. You need that free flow. And buy a pyrometer and install.

    Pre turbo or after turbo pyro? I installed pyros before on my deuce and a half when I put a 5 ton injector pump on and cranked the fuel up.

    Just as justtrucking said you need to hollow out DPF AND DOC! Not one but both. Drilling holes don’t justify and can plug up.
     
    Amram Thanks this.

    I have my pyro probe mounted, clamped, on the exterior of the exhaust manifold at the #4 cylinder. You are looking for heat soak, the actual temp will be roughly 250 degrees more than what you are seeing on the gauge. That will give you a good idea of what is going on. If you are hitting 900 degree temps in normal driving conditions you are having real issues. My pyro runs right around 250 degrees in normal driving conditions in 30* weather. During the summer, 80* normal is right around 350-400* F

    Got a link to pyro you use? On my deuce I use the Auberns digital pyrpmeter. It was the probe still that needs a hole drilled and tapped.

    Oh. Oil temps last night running were 212 degrees while going 65mph on the I87 south with a stiff headwind
