Hey guys so my father has a 2001 freightliner century detroit 60 with the 10 speed. His truck has no egr system at all. We are in the state of california and you know how its getting hard with emissions on trucks.Any reviews on dpf on trucks such as his or testimonies would be appreciated. He has over 1,000,000 miles on the truck but has always been up to date on maintenance and truck runs really strong despite the high mileage as well does not consume oil. Have you guys installed dpf filters on your trucks. i hear the trucks with egr have lots of issues with the dpf.

thanks in advance guys.

I would do some research. Adding a DPF system to a truck would be incredibly labor intensive to the point where buying a new truck with DPF already on the truck. Good luck!

That would be a big modification for your S60. New ecm, Doser valve. Doc, DPF, complete exhaust replacement to stainless, sensors for everything and programming oh and wiring harnesses. It won’t be cheap and it will likely be buggy at first. I would recommend going with an epa 07 or epa 10 truck if you can’t purchase something new. I know the port is modifying rules so you can’t have trucks that old there.

I would not want to even start down that rabbit hole. Emissions trucks suck. I haven’t been around new trucks so maybe the newer trucks, like you’re in, have some of the bugs ironed out.

I'm conflicted.

I want clean air (seriously, the '60s and '70s, if the accounts are true, must have been like living in hell), yet according to every person I've spoken to the emissions aftertreatment systems, including the so-called "integrated modules" (looking at you Volvo), are troublesome and maintenance-prone (shame on my colleagues in the electronics- and software-engineering sectors for supporting and creating this rubbish) and so I can't really like them.

I wonder if any of the people involved in emissions regulation and reduction have actually experienced for themselves the issues with modern emissions controls. There seem to be an awful lot of people who "regulate at a distance" - that is, creating regulations without actually experiencing the consequences of them. Insert quote about throwing stones in glass houses here

Clean air, yes. But this? No way! Heck, a DEF tank would probably be better as a flower planter than as an emissions control device (at least flowers don't cause breakdowns all the time)!
