good or bad idea?

I have an 08 with a bullydog and magnaflow, with the dpf on. I tow a bay boat and have a 6" lift with 37's. When the truck goes into regen and im towing the boat it runs like poop. I was thinking about the sct and the dpf delete. I am not going for performance just reliability and towing performance. What do you guys think? Should I?

Spartan gives you an amazing package for the money my friend! 9 DPF delete tunes out of the box, including a 210 Tow Performance tune designed just for pulling heavy loads.

If you dont want to spend alot of money, find a used Superchips with Nutty's DPF off tunes. Their pretty hard to come by, I just bought a used one from SANDSAILOR here on the ORG and love it. It only took a little over $600 to tune my truck and delete the dpf/cat. Thats about the cheapest way around it IMO...

Use the search engine on the main home page. Its your best friend here on the Org!!!

Also, go to your User CP and fill out you Signature so everyone here with know what your working with.

Welcome to the Org my friend!
