Need to delete EGR and dpf.
Thanks.
Just a quick sanity check: though a DPF/EGR delete (if available) is likely to improve fuel economy and reliability, it will void your warranty. Conversely, a clogged DPF is likely something a dealer would fix under warranty.

To restate: if your concern is your present predicament then it's probably better to just have a dealer trigger a manual regen of your DPF, keep your warranty intact, and be on your way.

I was planning on getting it done during the holidays, not.

1) mices ate my ducted heating,
2) storms ripped our blinds to shreds (insured)
3) dishwasher died
4) washing machine died.

All within a month.

I did finish installing all my blacked out bits though and got the stuff ready to install my catchcan.

Shit happens.

I would like to find out how many of you would be interested in tuning your Ecodiesel. I have used them for my other vehicles and they have come out great so I am really looking forward to trying it on our Grand Cherokee.

I will be tuning my own and will allow you to test drive if interested in the tune. Ecu's can be mailed in and shipped back within 24 hours.

DPF and EGR removal is available as well.
Hi Stang, I live in CA and want to do the ecu flash on my 14 jeep...can you message me your phone number so we can discuss the nitty gritty at a time that's convenient for you? thx, J

Re: Tuning your EcoDiesel

I'm interested and ready to buy but at the very least I'd need the EGR disabled. A complete delete would be preferable.

My wife doesn't need any hp bump (although we'll take it) our goals our engine longevity and fuel economy.

Re: Tuning your EcoDiesel

Could you please elaborate what you mean by "having the DEF system turned off in the ECU"?

Would that mean we no longer get the P20EE code on?

Do you know how quickly the DPF can go from empty to full under less than ideal conditions? It's something on the order of 1000 miles, easy. If you never give the truck a chance to regen, it can fill very, very quickly.

Edit: I should add that this would only happen if something was seriously wrong with the regen facilities - under normal operation, the dpf will clean itself out under almost any situation where you're traveling >35 MPH for any duration. Nothing to worry about unless something is seriously wrong!

Some programmers on other diesel platforms have just turned off the functionality of the EGR. It remains in place but remains in the closed position so the detrimental effects (soot build up, less power and efficiency) do not occur but you still look stock. The EGR functioning correctly also causes more soot production which results in more regens and more activity and chance for failure with the DPF.

A good solution for the average consumer that wants to remain consipicous would be the EGR and DEF system shut off but kept in place. The DPF would still be functional for soot and noise reduction. Personally I hate any amount of soot from my diesels as long as the DPF can be made reliable, I'd actually prefer the DPF to remain in place and functional. I had a 7.3 for years that could soot out an entire city block and I feel that was (very) selfish and immature of me.

Although there are lots of claims of how the emmisions equipment reduces mpg, with a program and EGR delete I just have not seen that to be the case personally with the newest diesels. I doubt any deletion kit could make my Eco-D actualy run better than it does now as it already runs so well and has such superior mpg to my pre-emissions/ deleted diesels.

Ultimately, diesels from about MY 2004-2012 been similiar to gasoline engines from the late 1970s. When gassers first began to get emissions they really were crap. Poor power and performance. About 3 years ago I dynoed a car with and without cats and the dang thing had a notably better powerband with the cats in place! It took many years but gassers have no problems due to their emissions systems any longer and in fact have never ran better.

Diesels just starting taking their lumps recently as they had been exempt from emissions for many years and got a late start. They have quickly improved. In another 5 years very few tuners or consumers will see the need or will even consider a full delete kit as it just won't be necessary.

Re: Tuning your EcoDiesel

Good post Suns PSD! Also, instead of just turning the EGR off, I've seen tunes that will use the EGR until you reach a certain coolant temp and then shut off. The idea is that the hot air coming through the intake really helps get diesels up to temp faster resulting in optimum running conditions quicker. It's great for short trips or when the outside temps drop below freezing.
