What to do? Exhaust, programmer, EGR delete, etc

So I didnt realize I was only going to get 13 mpg when I purchased my 2008 used about 3 months ago, and I purchased extended warranty to 100K miles. Right now i'm at 43K miles. I just put a K & N intake on, but that seems to be about all I can do without warranty issues. I want to put a 5" turbo back system on with the DPF delete as well as a programmer so I can get rid of all the BS. I was wondering if I did do that how hard it would be to switch the stock exhaust back on if I had to take it in for work? I'm not sure how all this stuff works yet as I am new to diesels.

Help!

I would go downpipe back as that would be the easiest to revert to stock when need be. If you went turbo back you would probably have to lift the engine or actually cut the downpipe, at which point you won't be able to convert back to stock.

True, though I think a DOC/DPF delete pipe might be even easier... cheaper too.

Oh yeah, that would be by far the easiest and cheapest.

Job is a 3.5 hour job total. That included installing the chip. Do ur homework and get what is best for you personally. There are a LOT of opinions in here. Since u are new I start by saying read read read. Use the search button, call h&s, call spartan, and find a vendor you are comfortable with. I personally prefer performancetruckproducts.com but others might say different. It really depends on your use of the truck and how much hp and reliability. I too have a warranty and I deleted at 25k miles. Best decision I have ever made and haven't had a single problem since. Good luck buddy. Pm me with questions I u need to.

I agree. Call the tuners and see who works for you. If you do just a delete pipe it is easy to go back to stock. takes about 45 min and can be done by yourself if you use a ratchet strap to hold up the other end of the DPF. Delete and dont look back. By deleting you are taking most of the things that go wrong out of the equation except maybe a radiator.
