Parts are ordered

i just ordered my mini maxx, DPF/CAT Delete, and AFE Pro Guard 7. Is there any input on the performance i am gonna see or the tunning i should run, like the low boost fueling or trans tunning? Mind you im on 20s 37s and a 6 inch lift. Also im new to fords so what can i run and be safe as far as big tunes. All my friends run the piss out of there dodges and D-Max's no issues, but i really like the looke of the ford and here the power is awsome but i dont know that for sure yet.

Yes it does turn off the EGR and you should look into deleting it. I run the Hot Damn tunes on mild and shift 2 med trans. You wont believe the difference in the truck.

That's the same setup I'm running except a dry filter. Truck is sweet except its lacking the sound i want, i guess i have to buy a full 5" exhaust. Haven't deleted egr though, I was planning on leaving it go because truck only has 17k miles and I have 4 years longer or 83k more miles of warranty. Not sure what I am gonna do yet

No you don't need the blow off valve unless you are running nitrous or propane or just absolutely beating the hell out of it. Yes I had piling and blown head gaskets.

Well strokinpower what would you say is a safe tune for me to run and trans shift tune to run with the lift and 37 and to be safest on head gaskets

Just keep it on the pre loaded tunes and you should be fine. I like the shift 2 medium because to me it is the closest to stock.
