depends how strict your shop is. some will void your warranty for a CAI so I wouldn't do anything till you know how lenient your shop is

To start things off go to my parts for sale thread and purchase my dpf/cat delete pipe, and egr delete kit That will be a great start for you I also still have my warranty but with the benefits you get from the dpf/cat delete, tuner, and CAI it is we'll worth the extra 2 hours it takes to put the truck back to stock in case of warranty work

This is one of the best reversible mods you can make to a 6.4. Along with a tuner to allow the engine to run correctly without the DPF your truck will love you. Try breathing though a coffee straw and then breath though a regular straw. Thats what your truck feels like

I've ran spartan and h&s and I prefer the h&s. Spartan tunes weren't bad, but I think the h&s is a better dd/tow

Just wait it out. They're not the same thing. A tuner on a mustang is not as harmful as a diesel tuner. The guy can always back out of your warranty even if he says he won't. It's only 4 months. If I were you I'd just wait and look into different tuners and get better info on what you want for sure why your waiting. Then you could do an exhaust at the same time maybe as a package
