DPF delete help

Hey guys! Need a little help. I've talked my buddy into deleting the DPF on his 2008 F250. Told him it would sound better help with gas mileage ect. He's a diesel newb when it comes to the aftermarket, so he doesn't know what to get. I offered to help but don't know a whole lot about the 6.4. I had a 6.0 and now have a Duramax. I was looking at Alligators site and I think we're leaking towards the H&S XRT programmer and a 4" straight pipe. What do you guys think? These are probably the only performance mods he'll do. Not looking for huge power or anything. Also, its pretty easy to install right? My 2008 Duramax you simply cut the old pipe and filters off, removed the wires, installed exhaust and programmer and went driving. Any help is appreciated!

Thanks!
Jeremy

H&S would be a great choice.

H&s mini max would be nicer because its switch on the fly tuner plus gauges. Install is simple. Unplug the sensors from the wiring harness and leaved the sensors in the dpf, remove the tail section first(dpf back) once that's out of the way, unbolt the dpf from the down pipe, your gonna need a 13mm swivel socket with 6" extension to get the top bolt at the bottom of the down pipe because its tight between the flange and the frame. Once you unbolt it, pop out the hangers and your exhaust is off. Tape up the plugs for the sensors on the truck real good to keep dirt from getting in the connectors. Start installing new exhaust from the front to the back. I suggest a down pipe back kit, install is really easy and u don't have to mess with cutting the down pipe. You also don't need bungs in the exhaust with h&s tuners. Good luck!

Mini maxx. I did the 5 inch flopro. I guess it has a bit lower note. Can't say for sure though. Easy mod too. And power is awesome i think with the mini and delete on the 6.4

h&s is the way to go, and I personally can recommend the minimaxx. 4" should be fine on the exhaust, but since you're doin that I would do the down pipe as well. Also since he's doing a tuner and exhaust, drop a little more money and upgrade the intake.

Another vote for the H&S Mini Maxx. Pair that with an MBRP or Diamond Eye exhaust and an S&B intake and you will have one hell of a package.

I would want to keep the bungs as its alot cheaper then buying a pryo kit.
