Deleting has many issues.
Read any forum for any brand. MANY MANY posts from those with delete caused issues.

In spite of those, most seem happy to have done it.... I think they are rebels to the system.

IOW, no matter how much trouble it is, they are thrilled to rebel against the EPA emission stuff...
If that is you... Have at it. If not, then consider doing it carefully.

My 03 has none of that garbage, not even a cat. I have to test it once a year because of its age at the cost of $75 per test. Funny how it comes back with ZERO emissions, count e’m ZERO. Now don’t make me have to go out in the rain and get the report out of my glove box and copy it so I have to post it. But, I will. [emoticon]

If you can smell or see the exhaust it has emissions.

stand behind your 03 and take a wiff when running.

Then stand behind a 2015 when running and take a wiff.

Unless your nose is non functioning, you WILL tell the difference.

The 03's are reasonably clean compared to way before but still has soot and NO2 emissions that ARE noticeable and higher than a 15 or so.

Huntindog, I’d like to hear about these many issues with deleted trucks.
And leave out the “I blew my trans after deleting (and 100hp tune and bigger injectors” type of issues.

My Brother In Law (2012 3500 Dually with about 120,000 miles on it) was up in Alaska with his Truck Camper last Summer when the DEF Heater went south and put him into Limp Mode. They had to fly one in for him and that took about a week!

He is really considering deleting it but I told him about Canada being tough on people deleting. They go up to and through Canada quite a lot and after I brought it up he is rethinking the idea.

Unless your BIl plans on stopping and titling and registering the truck in Canada on the way through, I’m not sure what the issue would be.
Canada doesn’t give a schitt what you drive through with, emissions wise.
I’m sure you could still get a ticket for rolling coal out of a 8” exhaust tip onto a group of children Waiting for the school bus on the corner if that’s what you mean.
Btw, we delete stuff in Canada too when it doesn’t work right.
