    Here is my problem; 1st it all started with a trip home when all of a sudden my 2007 6.7 had a kind of a misfire. A lot of smoke and no power. I stopped the truck and had it taken to a shop . They took off the DPF and power sprayed it out , Truck ran ok for awhile , Then it would start running bad and the engine light would come on P2261, So I took the DPF off again and had it baked out by a company that does DPF cleaning , Put it back on and everything was ok for awhile again ,Then engine light would come on and give all kinds of codes P2261/P2427 at different times , So I clean out my EGR using a soaking cleaner and put it back on , Truck ran good ,Then codes would come up again ,So I did a turbo spray clean out ,Ran good again ,After awhile (day or 2) code would come up again P2261/P2509/p2427/p242?, Took my Exhaust sensor off and clean it out , Added fuel and oil additive . Truck runs great no smoke at all 10-15 boost turbo but codes still stay on even after trying to clear them also 1st time my overhead truck system say's exhaust filter full and power reduced see dealer . I just took the truck on a 200 mile trip ran the best it's ever ran great millage 20 mpg . still don't know when it regren starts but engine light still stays on along with overhead warning. I have a Echo Evolution also hooked up to it

    Just more emission crap. I deleted before all these problems started on my 2011. I would suggest you do an EGR and DPF delete but realize this won't work if you are in place that requires emission testing to register. I have kept all the deleted parts from my truck just in case emissions testing comes to my part of the world, but I will either sell the truck with the emissions restored or sell the truck with the parts and let someone else re-install all the crap because I will not drive it in stock form.

    You can take off the NOX filter and clean it as well.
