Undo bolts. Remove DPF. Install delete pipe. Install tuner.

I am swapping one out on a customer truck on monday, I will get pictures.

Nice... Already did the truck... Had to torch the bolts on the downpipe since they were crazy frozen... Any penatrating oils or anything that would help out? I used normal grade penatrating oil and it didnt seem to help much.

Never had that issue... you ARE trying to take the bolts out, not the nuts off the converter side, right?

Yeah, they generally don't come out all that well.

I get 'em glowing with the gas axe and then splash 'em with cold water. Usually breaks 'em free.

What do you do with the two pressure hoses? Do you need to disconnect them anywhere else? I am about remove dpf and install delete pipe and just wanted to make sure what to do what the pressure hoses. Then program the truck with a H&S. Any help would be great!!
