    From now on , if you want , you can put distilled water in your DEF tank instead of DEF
    the Hot tune is ready/compatible with that too , all depends on your location ,
    you do not want water in tank in winter temperatures .
    ..
    the GDE OFF ROAD tune is an option when DOC/DPF combo goes bad ,
    with 7 times less regens now that you have the Hot tune , that DPF should last a long time
    without causing troubles , and you can feel like you are doing your part in anti-pollution
    with the exhaust components in place . less smell too.

    if one day you need to remove the EGR cooler ,
    sasquatch stage 2 not sold anymore ,
    CFT performance sells a good one : Ram, and Grand Cherokee Eco Diesel EGR Solution kit - CFT Performance INC.
    and there is a new one available , looks very good : https://noecodelete.com/product/no-eco-egr-delete-kit/

    and a little thread I worked on earlier with Ecosparky and others : https://www.ram1500diesel.com/forum/...tructions.html
    Can someone explain why DEF is no longer needed with the Hot Tune?

    because the data sent by the sensors in the DEF tank , used by the ECM , have acceptable parameters in
    the stock tune , those parameters in the GDE HOT tune are different ,
    they are modified in a way that the ECM no longer throws a CEL if it does not like the chemistry of the DEF used .
    ..
    If you are in Hawaii , you don't have to worry about freezing of the distilled water , lucky you .

    I even ran regular water. No issues but like the idea of distilled water to leave no residue.

    Man this motor would literally have few to no issues if there were no emission controls. Good to read.

    No....EGR delete. But that is explained in the first sentence. I will try to edit EGR into the title.

    Aside from not having to pay for DEF, what is the advantage of running water in the DEF tank?

    Since the truck might use less DEF, you’d have less of a chance of DEF crystallizing in the tank?

    Just a thought. I’ve not put one drop in the def tank of my truck, thankfully (SCR/DPF Delete). I’d like to figure out something I could do with the tank though...

    Little to no chance of DEF crystallization on sensors and injector.
