I've made the decision to remove the DPF on my 2010 and add a mild tune. I've got a mod friendly dealer so I don't have to worry about that. One of the mechanics will actually put these tuners on for you
I've searched and read for hours and have narrowed it down to a few and would appreciate your feedback.
The truck already runs and tows my trailer good enough so I don't want or need to add 200+ hp. If I had the big tunes would I flip the switch every once in a while, absolutley
but a mild tune of 70 or 80 hp would be more than enough in addition to letting it breath by removing all the other crap. I'd like to hear from you guys and the vendors whats working the best and recommended. I want to make sure I can keep the EGTs in check and I don't want to loose the shift points of the tranny either. My buddy has an H&S on his 09 and hates how hard it shifts. I know theres updates available and told him he needs to look into them.
Here's the list I came up with. Let me know if there are any others I need to consider.
- H&S Blackmax (because I like the bigger screen), can you keep the EGTs in check? How does the 80 hp tow? Any reason to worry about towing with this setting?
- Gear Box Z DPF+ with mild tune and an Edge CTS for gauges, what do you do with the EGR? Do you have to run blocker plates or do they cycle it like the H&S tuners?
- Edge Rac Evolution - I've heard Edge creates some high EGTs in the older Ford and Dodge trucks? Does Edge cycle the EGR like H&S? How do they shift?
Thanks everyone. I appreciate the feedback.
