Newbe!..

So I picked up a 2010 Ram 2500 Mega last week... 95k miles and it is a great truck!.. but getting 10 to 11.5 MPG is not what I expected... I have read this thread, and will start planning to make some "improvements" in the future..

Where is there an indication that a Regen is being done on the DPF??.. would it show on the dash or how to know it is in that process??... More questions to follow..

Mine doesn't display when it's in regen. Sometimes, if it's idling, I can tell by the change in sound of the motor. Also, if it's idling in 'Park', the high-idle will come on in conjunction with the change in sound.

My 2012 does not indicate dpf regenerations either. (This was before I deleted my dpf filter.) Obviously now I don't have to worry about them now.

I did an EGR delete and turbo back exhaust removal on a 2010 Dodge 6.7. i just cut the wiring harness. i seem to have a small drain on the battery's now and the truck is dead in about 4 days. (New Battery's). I have made sure none of the wires i cut are touching each other. Not sure any are hot with key off anyway? Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Delete with stock down pipe

Has anyone removed the stock downpipe and hollowed out the dpr cat and nox filter so it will stilll pass the visual inspections? I want to do this along with getting the RaceMe tuner. Any thoughts?

Blake, can you help me out?

Blake,
Seems I should have never sold my 06 5.9 but it's to late now. I recently purchased a 2012 6.7 and to say the least I'm now regretting it after seeing my fuel mileage plummet. I'm lucky if I get 12mpg compared to 19mpg with the old 5.9.

So I'm figuring i need to do the deletes. I have a bully dog programmer which doesn't support any deletes. Go figure, right! So I'm thinking efi live is my only option left out there. Which one is the big question? I heard Corey's or byrans is the way to go. I figure I can still use the bully dog as my monitor and run one of those guy's programmer. Thinking 4" turbo back exhaust to go with it to. What would you recommend?

Did I read it right to that I don't have to do the egr delete now because the programmer will just shut the egr system off for me? I live in the worst epa state there is and will have to smog every yeo years and try to avoid those bs road side inspections. So there again what would you recommend I do to save my 6.7 & gain some mpg back?

Your help will be greatly appreciated...!
Thanks M.S.G

I had a Smarty from my 07 and it worked on my 12. I cannot remember the details on how I did it. I'm certain I upgraded the files/program. Only a couple features worked on the 12 and it was confirmed that is how it works when moving to a newer version.

As for the egr, my set up started to leak coolant at that stand pipe so I deleted it too. You will still have exhaust gas passing thru without a delete.

My 16 got a Smarty Ultra ME and I ran it for awhile without egr delete. I could smell coolant and the leak once again was at that stand pipe. Fully deleted now.

You will net better mpg results on your 12 then the DEF trucks.

EFI live is nice! I know folks using it but no personal experience here.

Letís try again in the correct post 😂

I just bought a 2012 3500 drw with 80,000 miles. There is a message to perform service and a mechanic friend told me it was the egr service, so Iím looking at a full delete.

Im planning on purchasing the AFE Bladerunner intake manifold, the delete pipe, and the h&s minimaxx tuner, but if I read correctly, I donít need to purchase the egr/ egr cooler delete kit. Is that correct? If you have any advice or suggestions on my choices, Iíd love to hear them.

thanks in advance

You are correct on not needing to delete the egr/egr cooler because on the 4th generation Ram the tuner turns all that off anyways. This is especially true if you live in a state where emission testing is a way of life. I use the Race ME tuner on mine and that is the way it is anyways. Just had to make sure I unplugged it all for the exhaust brake to function better.

Ok

Thanks guys. So Iím in a bit of a pinch since my money tree withered up and died about 13 years ago, lol, if I just bought the race pipe and say a Mini Maxx for now, I should be good to go until I can afford a newer tuner, right?

Also, is there any benefit to removing the egr and cooler on this truck? Iím in Texas so emissions are not an issue.

Billions of reasons why the EGR, EGR Cooler, and Grid Heater Delete need to be done if your in Texas. Just read all 24 previous pages
