Hey guy's......been reading here for about a month or so.
I bought a 08 450 DRW 4X4 about 5-6 weeks ago.
It has 105000 miles but still looks new.....I don't think it had ever seen a dirt road till I bought it.
Anyways, it has been back to the dealer several times and that is why I found this forum to learn more about this truck and it's problems.
I do think problems have been finally solved. It was showing some fuel system codes(not sure what codes). The dealer did find the turbos bad and replaced them. also some O-ring on the tank fuel pump which didn't last so today they put in a new pump. Seems to be running great now.
My question is that I have read alot about deleting some of the crap on these engines and I would like to go this route I think.
Now I am not interested in alot more power, it is fine now for what I use it for, mostly running around for farm use and such. I will be pulling grain carts with it at harvest but not very far.
Mostly bought it because it just looks so good
I was looking at a DPE delete kit from one of the vender's on this forum, PTP.
It is this kit...
DPF-R Ford 4.0 Plus Programmer with aFe DPF Delete Race Exhaust (Stainless Steel)
Part #: FEK40AFE
It looks simple, should up my mpg when just driving around and it claims around 70hp gain. This all sounds good to me but what do you all think.
And it would be easy to put back to stock if I need more work.(I did buy an extended warranty for another 24,000 miles)
So is this a good starting point or not?
Thanks for any help.
