2008 exhaust, intake, programmer upgrade help.

My roommate drives a 2008 6.4 liter. He is wanting to put exhaust, intake and a programmer on his truck for performance and to help with fuel mileage. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

MBRP Exhaust with DPF/Cat Delete, AFE Stage 2 SI Intake, and an SCT TSX (or an X3 paired with an Edge Insight CTS for monitoring) with Innovative Diesel custom tunes.

H&S for the tuning, either Flo-Pro, Diamond Eye, or AFE for the exhaust, and AFE or S&B for the intake. The Mini Maxx is what we recommend and sell the most of, they are the best all around tuner on the market in my opinion. We have several different packages on our site, below is a link with more info and pricing. Feel free to give me a holler if you have any questions.

I agree minus the intake. I dont think you need the Stage 2 intake. I have had just a drop-in AFE and have been fine on Eric's tunes. I have not ran the X-Race, but towing it has not moved.

It all depends on what you plan on using the truck more. I think Eric is the best with the tranny, so towing I love his tunes. I am not into racing my truck, 450 is too big, but his tunes have put out the most power unless something has changed. H&S is pushed a lot here, Spartan was and comes in second on being pushed. The tuners for SCT dont get on the forums very much, Mike (KEM) and Eric (Innovative). I have been told Mike is good also, but have not tested his tunes, been happy with Eric's.

I agree, Eric and Mike are some of the few that have true custom tuning.
