Wanting Good Mpg gains, HP, but 0% problems..

What do you guys think is the best set up for me? I want to do a cat delete/dpf delete but like i said i hear so many horror stories of ppls trans messing up, computer issues, and anything else that would hurt my truck..I bought the truck to get 400,000 miles and dont want to hurt that possibility.. im running an 8inch kit on 37's..
Thanks!

Dusten beat me to it. What he said X2

Spartan is hands down the best tuner out there and their tranny programing is great. The 210 tune will do exactly what you are asking for.

Just figured I would, I know the answer though

BTW Stroker your truck is looking awesome

Lets hope you don't run into any problems with this one. Treat her well, and keep up the maintenance. She'll treat you right

i like it even more after my drive home from work. Was puttering down I8 minding my own business, doing 70. I started creep by a brand new hemi ram, when the driver looked over and started to pull away. Couldnt allow that, so i paced him. he chuckled and floored it... boy was he surprised when i walked away. Just as i slowed back to highway speeds a 7.3L super duty caught me, passed me and left a cloud in my face. So, I had to show him what spartan tuning means...
