DPF-CAT Delete/Tuner

I will be doing a DPF/CAT Delete and Tuner on My Truck soon and was wondering when doing this if you Guys are doing the Delete Pipe first then Installing the Tuner to turn the DPF off or Vise Versa? Does it really matter what you do first?

Probably would be better to do the tuner first just to make sure everything loads properly before taking the DPF off.

I dont think it matters which you do first. You just want to make sure the dpf is off before you start it after its tuned.

I would do the tuner first to make sure it installs and then do the exhaust. That makes the most sense.

Just got my XRT Pro today and right at the top of the box with caution colors "do the programmer before the exhaust".

How Do You Like The XRT PRO?

I'm looking at the Superchips 1856 and the XRT Pro, how does the XRT work?
Can find much info on the Superchips, not sure if it's because their newer or no ones using them?

The XRT Tuner just plugs into the OBD II port like the Superchips Tuner. It is very user friendly. Not many people are using the Superchips, but there are a few.

It simply just plugs in under the steering wheel and when it is finished unplug. It took 40 minutes for complete install. Very simple even the pipe. The tuner part took 5 minutes and it takes a minute to change power levels once program was installed. I did the 80 horsepower setting which is mild. I could not believe how much a difference in power. All i can say is wow. It shifts a little hard in the first couple of gears, but book says that will stop once learning has finished. The big question mileage?? I averaged 11.7 city and around 14.4 highway before. I just got back from the ranch and calculated every fill up (3 of them). I got around 17.8 running 75-85 and 16.4 with 2 and a half tons of feed in the bed. Not the 20ish I have heard, but a soild 3 and i might have been running faster then some poeple getting the 20. I was going for mileage over power. I got tired of filling up every 320 miles. Little back smoke comes out when you step on it hard. Hopes this helps.
