Basic Mod Questions

Just getting ready to start modding a 2010 6.4 with 59k on the clock. This truck is a daily driver that spends most of its time on dirt roads and towing. So reliability is key. I spend all my time researching 6.0 stuff for mine so any quick advice I can get from you guys who know what you're doing is great.

I'm looking at a downpipe back exhaust, egr delete, and tuner, and possibly some more add-ons like an intercooler or cold air intake. I'm not necessarily strapped for cash on this one, but the best bang for the buck is always the best.

Downpipe Back Exhaust
This one is pretty straight forward, but whats the advatage to bungs? I've been looking at the silverline kit, any others I should be looking at?

EGR Delete
I'm lost on this one. I'm not sure I understand the wastegate function on these and wether or not its something that would be beneficial. Recommendations?

Tuner
I'm looking for a tuner that can compinsate for the dpf delete, egr delete, tpms delete, and correct tire size. Not looking to push this truck for big power at all, probably looking at a 150 or less daily driver tune and tow on stock or no power with just the delete software in place. Also I think it's a pain on the sct to load up tunes all the time. I want something that changes tunes much quicker that has gauges too. What dash mount options are there?

Other Add-Ons
I see a lot of spearcos floating around on other 6.4s, benefits? I was thinking about a cold air intake too, but I think I'll just mod the stock airbox. Anything else thats worth while?

Thanks in advance

For the exhaust some of the tuners don't require bungs. I have an h&s & it does not require them. It also has options for dpf delete, egr delete, tire size correct & I thinks it can disable the tpms. When you pick one of the tunes either mild or hot damm you have 4 adjustable settings with each tune that can be made on the fly. I think the guages on the mini are great but i have seen some people that think they are small. I am plannning on getting an h&s intake. I haven't done much research on the intercoolers.

i also run the h&s minimaxx and i love it. A tuner, exhaust, intake and egr delete and you are set. i would also recommend a coolant filter. If you get an intercooler look at the banks one. Its a good price and i have heard good things about it.

How's the mini maxx on the tranny? Is it custom or canned tunes? How hard is it to setup a pre-turbo pyrometer? Can anyone give some insight on the benefits of an egr wastegate?

I would think it is dependant on how you drive it. Beat the hell out of it & your tranny won't last. Mind you even beating the hell out of a stock truck would probably be hard on the tranny too. H&S has canned tunes I guess you would call them. Also they have 6 different tranny tunes as well. Not to sure about the pre turbo pyro. From what I understand a wastegate isn't necesssary unless you are going to be doing some major mods and high boost.
