Do it your self. Only tool that you will need that u may not have is a 13mm swivel socket for the top bolt of the flange where the exhaust connects to bottom of downpipe. That's the only thing ya need a special tool for. I did the dpf delete by myself and it only took about 2 hours. I could prolly do it in half the time now after doing it one time.

To the op, you will love that set up. The mini max is a heck of a tuner and I love how you can change the tune on the fly. It will be a whole different truck

Congrats on your truck I almost bought the same year cc sb myself but got a gear deal on my 04 cc sb king ranch. The setup your going to buy is a good choice. I would recommend a leveling kit too though. IMO it just looks better than the raked look. But if you do a lot of towing with it I could see you keeping it like it is if it doesn't have a lift already. But post a couple of pics of it so we can see that beauty. BTW welcome to powerstroke.org

I run the trans tune with the 5th gear med tq lock. Cause it locks around 55 mph which is the speed limit around here. I didn't like the default cause when I got on it, it felt like it was shifting 100 times lol.
