question on SCT live wire basic..

k, i was convinced to just go with something that has been proven, i have heard a lot of good things about the SCT programmings. I'm going to purchase this flash kit right now still running the DPF. Will that get me anymore MPG? if so, what tune should i run it on that won't fry the DPF. When i do go and delete the DPF, is this tuner able to be programmed with the DPF and EGR plate deletes?

The Best Program for that vehicle is the Livewire Extreme. For that vehicle it is very hard to get better fuel economy with the DPF still on the vehicle. Cause what is killing the fuel economy is when that vehicle goes into regan and it is dumping some much fuel into the pipe. I would Highly recommend doing the DPF delete for that vehicle.

What Matt said just go with the extreme, by time you buy the Basic and add OR license your better off just buying the extreme in the first place!

you will ruin the dpf if running any tune from any body over time, just do the 9625or version and be rewarded with better mpg and lots more power and when the bug bites later get some custom tunes.

I think you need the off-road software to get the delete tuning to be able to do the delete.
