After SEMA to buy 6.4 Programmer?

I've been crusing around a lot of other 6.4 Power Stroke site and everyone seems to think that if you haven't bought a programmer that you should wait until after SEMA to buy one b/c all the Manf. will be releasing thier new stuff right after the show?

Usually that's how it goes. I would wait until the tuners get around to making custom tunes for the SCT Livewire and also get around REGEN easily. Just my 0.02.

you dont want to get around the regen....if it doesnt regen the DPF will plug up solid and the motor will run like crap......and DPF's will not be covered under your warranty...

Sorry, I meant they are working on the tunes and testing them.

What about a "regen abort"? So if you are at the track, or somewhere you want to stop it (I.e. a field with tall dry grass which you truck is parked in)...you could abort it temporarly and the computer would try again at a later preset time or mileage.

Sorry for the , but that thought just popped in my head.

Regen delete, as well as straight piped = solved problems.

Granted, it won't be covered under warranty....

but the programming is already out there to override the regen.

I know that the regen has been figured out...but will it work with a programmer in it? I thought that was the issue.

Marc,
I know that w/out the REGEN the DPF will clog...I was hinting at those w/ 6.4L's straightpiping with the regen delete...and popping on some tunes.

Julian, how do you like that 80hp tune with the "straight pipe"? I can't wait to see what the vendors do with custom tunes!!!
