Help with mods on 6.4

Im new to this forum and Ive been looking around for a newer truck and have found some pretty good deals on some 08 powerstroke, they were government vehicles and have all records on them. It has 110,000 miles. I would be wanting to add some mods to help with power and fuel. I know deleting the dpf would help. But would just a dpf delete pipe be good enough? What programmer should I go with. Also does it need an aftermarket air box or is stock good enough.

H&S tuner and a S&B CAI will do. The stock air box cant keep up with a tuned truck.

What about for a exhaust. Will a dpf delete pipe work help fuel mileage or do I need the down pipe back. I'm not trying to break the bank but to just help the truck out. Also I've heard some guys run 200 and up tunes on there trucks, how much can the stock tranny take?

You can find a aluminized down pipe back exhaust for a tad more than what some dpf delete pipes cost. I would do h&s mini maxx, afe or s&b intake, and 4" aluminized down pipe back. That would be your best bang for your buck. You can run the hot damn tuning and then you can switch on the fly from no power, mild, wild, and hot. Hot is the +300 tune. But u could run it on mild and as long as your waiting for it to warm up before beating on it or waiting till it cools down to shut it off you will be fine. And occasionally use the 300 for fun. I use to run the 300 daily but I feel like I'm racing every where lol so I'm running it on mild so I can get some better mileage.

Thanks for the help. Is there a certain place you have to order from to get the 300+ tune. I've only seen the mini maxx for 250hp

Spartan Phalanx, AFE stage II or S&B intake, and a 4" downpipe back exhaust would be a good option. Let me know if you have any questions!

Go with H&S mini maxx and dpf delete and cold air intake. that is the cheapest. if you have a bit of extra cash get a full exhaust. the mini maxx is great because it has built in safety defuels and shift on the fly tunes.
