Newbie from Maryland

Thanks in advance to any responses. I just got a 08 250 king ranch job 1 a few weeks ago and looking to make a few changes to it. I am looking to get better mileage, performance, and sound. I know I am going to go with spartan and a delete but not sure what tunes to get. I have a couple grand extra right now so looking to get it done asap. Also looking for a place where i can purchase it all from that is within a couple hours away. the wife would flip so i have to be able to go pay in person. So any advice on tunes to get, delete pipe or exhaust just let me know. also anything else that should be done would be great to.

I'm not sure where to go but definitely go with Spartan and when you buy the tuner you will get their tunes all the way up to 250hp. For exhaust I would go with at least a 4in dp back but if you can afford it then I would get the 4in downpipe also. Rudys is great to deal with.

Here is a pretty good deal for you but it comes with the delete pipe, not a full exhaust.

I would just start with the tunes that come on it. Most people really like the performance/economy of the 250 tune. Where are you located? We are in Houston, TX and ship all over the country. We accept money order/cashiers check if you want to go that route which would be undetectable to your financial committee.

Let me know if I can help.

Go with NATE at PTP. Sounds like he already has a way around the wife!

On the exhaust, I would go with a downpipe back. You will thank me if you ever have to reinstall the dpf.
