Want to keep it clean

Hey guys, I have a 2010 f-350 kr that i love and want to keep clean with all the emissions stuff on it. I was wondering whats the best way to keep it clean yet get more mpg and power out of her. Im not looking for crazy race stuff or anything. Just a little to get up and down the highway in the texas hill country. Any ideas would help, thanks.

Spartan Diesel Technologies offers DPF-on tunes.

If you are keeping the DPF I would not tune the thing. Not worth it. Might gain some HP, but the mileage will take a hit because of the more power, which creates soot and gets caught by the DPF.
I have read that you can gain some HP and not take a hit with the Banks unit, but I am far from a Banks person, I think the stuff is overpriced.

This is true, but only if you keep your foot in the throttle constantly.

Normal cruising and driving, the VGT and timing changes far outweigh any changes in fueling and soot load to the DPF.

DPF-On tuning won't help economy as much as DPF-Delete, but all of our DPF-on tuning up to 120HP is worth a couple MPG's, consistently.

Matt I am not saying that I dont believe you, but it is hard to believe when some people have only reported a 2 MPG increase from a delete. But you know your tuning far better than I.

I wouldn't waste the money if you plan to leave the DPF on.

If you really want tuning then look at H&S...

Delete the DPF either with a delete pipe or a full system with a muffler (the Afe system with the muffler is VERY quiet) and run a good clean tune like spartan 210 or below and you will be way better off, Nobody will be able to tell your missing your DPF without looking under the truck. That being said there is mileage to be had from DPF-on tuning...hell I picked up 2.5 mpg when I was running my bully dog PMT, but your truck is going to be way happier without the DPF and its not hard to switch back for warranty. Good luck
