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.

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.
