DPF-deletes-EPADPF-delete kits have become popular for diesel truck owners who want to boost performance on emissions restricted engines – but no more.

The phenomenon of circumventing the EPA’s mandated pollution-control systems through DPF-deletes began about six years ago, according to our sister publication Pro Pickup’s special report.
