Yes. I want to know if the stock ECU can be used with a straight-pipe in place of the DPF, or if tuning is required.
Tuning would alway be required if there’s a sensor involved. Say for a o2 sensor; you’d have to program the computer to think it’s there and working properly if you were to take it out completely. Just an example I could come up with on the spot.

pickups do it all the time. if there is a kit, and i've heard there currently isn't right now, you'll need to mod the computer to thinking everything is still there. unfortunately it is illegal to do in the eyes of the EPA, but they're just money hungry turds that can suck an egg in my opinion. gen1 cruze had a fair delete kit that at least got rid of the exhaust components. i couldn't say for the EGR or anthing like that though.
Since the EPA crack down on this practice it has delete tuners in hiding. For gen one there are kits out there but not easy to get and expensive. It also disabled EGR

That’s how it is. I had put it in the air using my bosses lift when it was around 5000 miles and there wasn’t any panels. The only panel is for the under side of the engine. I’m sure the gen1 is a little different.
yeah gen1 diesel has 'aero panels'

i know the gen2 diesel gets great mpg, just assumed it had 'aero panels' as well

How is it holding up? I am doing my Equinox today. Trying to unhook all the sensors but I don't know what all need to stay, and what all needs to go.
