Cool New to Diesels and just bought my first mods

Bought 4" MBRP TBE with no muffler, S&B CAI, and SCT tuner from Nate "DSTRBD" for 880 and threw in a MBRP double walled 5" tip.

What results to the wheels(HP/TQ) and mpg increase should I expect to see? I don't plan on driving the crap outta my truck but how long till the head bolts die on my virgin 94k mile 6.0?

Thanks for any comments or discussion.

Travis

I'm not sure on the mpg increase/etc. (would depend on which tune you run, how you drive, etc.) but I would not run any sort of tune until you have gauges so that you can monitor your temps, boost, etc.

Was just going to run the mileage tune, so wouldn't think I would run into many issues with temps especially with the aftermarket straight pipe exhaust and cat delete

HP/TQ vs Mileage. There lays the dilemma.

1) The tunes you selected should give you, at least, a neighborhood value of increase.
2) Mileage - This is where it can get sticky. Some folks see minimal increases, some don't see any. A lot has to do with how much you "TEST" the new tunes. Getting extra ponies causes temptation to mash the skinny pedal. If any is gained, it's probably going to be in the 1-2, maybe 3 range, depending on how you drive.
