I recently worked in -33*F for a few days. With 0 being a regular high for a week.

The stock trucks were left running round the clock and for the first time I saw 6.7L putting smoke out the tailpipe on STOCK trucks. Not pretty. However they did a long hard regen once rolling and it all cleared up.

DeIeted would just be a nice insurance policy for d p f problems in sub zero temps.

Maybe look into several things. A solid winter front for 0 operating temps to keep coolant temps up and also a High idle mod. You wouldn't believe what another 300rpm does for cylinder temps on a idling truck.

Default D-Leted Cold Start Concerns

Mine smokes a fair bit at an Idle when it's really cold out upon startup. We're taking -30 or colder however. Smokes like a beat up 6.0 If she's not plugged in ahaha. Being plugged in makes all he difference for me at least. Once she's warmed up, between the winter front and the high Idle, she's all good though...

-30... I can't imagine. I always ask how that temp feels lol I know cold but I keep telling the wife I want to just take a drive up to Canada on a cold week, get out of the truck, And feel for myself what these Temps actually feel like. I know crazy but.. I always wonder because I daily.work in Temps around 20 and into the teens in the winter at our lowest. It's not cold to me.because I obviously dress for it.

your boogers freeze in your nose. the snow squeaks when you walk on it. if you recently had a shower, your hair will be ice. if your ears get cold enough to feel stiff, dont bend them in case they snap off

Yeah it feels like your nostrils will freeze shut, and they kinda do hahah. You get used to it though, just have to dress for the weather.

I figured as much on the dress attire. I still have to experience it one day

Screw that nonsense. I start complaining when the low temp is in the 30s. The only time I don't b*tch about the cold weather is if I'm hunting.

I have never notice it smoke much. Nothing like my 7.3. Now that was embarrassing

I notice a minor puff and haze for the first 30 seconds on my 6.7 but for some reason i do not recall much of any from my 6.4. I wonder if those factory dual turbos had something to do with that. I do notce more injector sound on the 6.7 cold vs the 6.4. Likley due to less sound from other areas tho. I suppose a lot of our opinions may be relative a bit. Lol
