Need some opinions.

Hey guys, im new too the 6.4, been driving a F150 since i was 16, but i bought a 09 F-250 the other day. She is coming up on 36k miles and still has her 100k powertrain warranty.

This is where i am looking for some opinions, i want to do a little aftermarket work on her. I am thinking of going with a H&S Blackmaxx or minimaxx, dpf delete, and air intake. i was wondering whether this is a good idea to go ahead and do, or wait until the warranty goes out? Also is the package deal from H&S a good deal? So i can get the programmer, delete, and air intake all at once.

I have read up on here about all the different tuners and what-not. i just wanted some personal opinions.

thanks guys,
jesse

yes, its a pretty good deal, other wise you have to search around and order from different places and it becomes more work than it is worth. I would reccomend getting the dpf cat delete tho, i mean you are already going to be under the truck and it will be better for it. But its not a have too. Good choice with H&s , you wont have to transfer the sensors at all so if you do have a problem its an easy swap back on. im very happy with my h&s, im still in warranty and just did the full exhaust. If you have a lift or a buddy with a shop you might even wanna do a exhaust and leave the stock downpipe, it still wont be that hard to swap back on. My only problem is i did a down pipe too so if something happens i have to put it back in.( but do still have it, most cut theres...)

That is an excellent kit. Once you get it all installed you will be wondering why you didnt do it earlier! We have them both in package form on our site at discounted pricing and have a pricing guarantee. Please let me know if theres anything we can help with.

Yes, i just had one of my injectors replaced under warranty, went in there with the h&s mounted on the dash and a 5" exhaust,i turned the tune down to 0 power, they never said a word. How ever there arent many dpf delete 6.4s in my area so maybe i just got a good tech who appreciated what had been done. Most of them are cool with it, when i had my old tuner on my truck the guy called me and said" hey we have an update out for your truck, i saw you have a tuner, do you want us to flash it" i simply said no thanks, il get the update later. Keep in mind this was the same time ford was replacing my recalled injectors.

You don't have to swap the Senors anymore with a Spartan Set up ether
