need advice on DPE delete ect

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

$749.00
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.
Later B&C-out

Truthfully, I would go the H&S tuner route. We have seen better results going this route and it is a much better product. Let us know if we can help with any questions.

Thanks guy's for the info.

Nate....I've been reading more and about come to the conclusion to go with a H&S tuner.
If I go with the Mini Max, this comes with a DPF eliminate pipe right? Can I run my stock exhaust with this setup and be ok or do I need to open this up also?

And can I delete the egr later?

And which air intake would you recommend?

sorry for all the questions, but I'm an old fart that is just not up to date on this stuff.

Again, Thanks for the help
Later, B&C-out

If all your looking for is a boost in mileage, then yeah, this is a good kit. I know several people running it. If your looking for mileage and HP gains higher then that, then take a look at the H&S packages they offer.

Both would require the same amount of work to revert back to stock for dealer and/or emissions purposes.

Your better off going with the H&S set up. Since you will be towing some pretty heavy loads, having guages is a must in my mind. The black max and mini max has everything you will need. Nate can set you up with a package deal with the H&S, delete pipe and intake.

Thanks for the insight all, The more I read and study, the more I'm convinced to go ahead with the H&S. I may be gittin old but I know I would still like to bump 'er up a little ever now and then and dust off some punk
And I really do like the gauge options.

Will be getting with Nate and try to figure out what all I need.

You all would be welcome to all come over and help me put it all on.....
I have lot's of Home brew on hand.
I really hate the climbing under and over a vehicle anymore.....did I mention I have LOT"S of home brew on hand..

Thanks again,
Later, B&C-out
