Looking for tuner...mainly towing and keeping the DPF

I am looking for a tuner that is mainly for towing. I will probably just put it on and leave it all the time. The only time I will remove it is for trips to the dealership. My toy hauler is around 14,000lbs. I already have a Banks Monster exhaust kit (single) and a True Flow XDI filter on it. I am also planning on leaving the DPF installed for other reasons. It's a 2008 6.4L with about 32,000 miles. Thanks!

We've seen good results from the XRT Tuner from HS Performance, they've got the ability to run both DPF on and off tunes, so if you ever decide to remove the DPF in the future you're good to go. Plus, it's just a basic programmer, so removing it for warranty stuff at your dealer isn't an issue.

We offer both DPF delete and DPF on tunes with our tuner. The tuner comes preloaded with 4 DPF on tunes and 9 DPF delete tunes. That way you could easily go to a DPF delete down the road if you decided to!

I'd have to say if you are keeping your dpf on, don't bother with the tuner at all, it's not worth the money. I ran with a tuner and dpf on for about a week, it went into regen usually 3 times a tank, at least two. Smoked noticeably, which means the dpf and cat will clog and when they do and you have to get them cleaned, the stealership will notice and put your name in their little black book. Just my suggestion but if you are leaving on your dpf, just leave the truck stock.

DPF's can clog on stock trucks....I've seen it happen first hand on two different trucks. With proper tuning, the DPF won't clog.

Oh I don't disagree at all on that, it just seems the way my truck was smoking with the tuner it would significantly shorten that period of time, and there would be no way of trying to tell the dealer that you didn't have a tuner on your truck with the amount of soot in there. Now with that being said keep in mind this is with a H&S, so I can't speak to the spartan and it's dpf on tunes.
