I dont recommend any tuner that retains the DPF on the 6.4. If you are not interested Spartan, look into a custom tuned SCT

Hey man....I understand you don't like the idea of Spartan for whatever reason, but the Bullydog PMT will be awful on your tranny and will reduce your fuel mileage because it will increase the soot particles moving through the DPF (causes regeneration to occur more often). You NEED tranny tuning if your going to add horsepower to your truck, but you seem really hard to persuade what is the BEST thing for your truck. No one in here is going to reccommend you anything generic for your truck, it's just not safe for the truck

I had the PMT, two words, STAY AWAY! I am no longer a fan of bully dog products. Their customer service used to be good, but when I continually called them to get an update for the PMT, they just kept telling me they were working on it. Months later, still no update so I sold it. I got Spartan and never looked back. Just my 2 cents.

Is that just the H&S tuning in the pmt shell? Or is bully dog actually doing it as well?

That's what Edge has said about their Racing Evolution, but I've heard mixed reviews on that. I wouldn't trust Bully Dog tranny tuning even if they do come out with a DPF delete tuner with it.

its going to be in the pmt shell but actuall bully dog tuning. Edge sucks everyone knows it but bully dog has been doing some pretty sick stuff with common rails for some time now so it should be interesting. They havent however done much trans tuning since dodges are more of a closed loop set up than our fords. My buddy witha cumapart runs bully dog and has dyno numbers to prove its higher than smarty. Only by a couple hp but smarty is the spartan of the cumapart world. But justt because its got better numbers doesnt make it faster at the track as all of us spartan dudes know already:
