About to order tuner, deletes, etc..

I have been researching for over a month. Going to place my order with PTP in a couple days. This is what I'm thinking for my '08 F-250. I welcome any input, advice, etc.

-Mini Maxx

-MBRP 5" Down Pipe Back, DPF Delete, No Bungs, with Muffler, AL

-PTP EGR delete (with elbow)

-S&B CAI

-H&S full dash mount

-H&S TPMS module

-Sinister coolant filter setup

My goal is a dependable, daily driver that will last a very long time. Hoping for increase in fuel mileage. Will play with higher power tunes on an infrequent basis.

Looks like you have the base that pretty much starts out everyone. But why not do a turbo back exhaust and change out the CAC pipe? That helps air flow a lot.

I would also suggest doing the CCV mod. It's cheap, easy, and keeps oil from getting in your intercooler and eventually your turbos.

Turbo back? Not sure. Was thinking I want a muffler. I don't want an excessively loud truck. Suggestions on a turbo back system?

Haven't read anything about the CCV mod or the cold air charge pipe...

You can still have a muffler with turbo back. The stock down pipe is very restrictive. Take a look at my mod thread in my sig. I have pics littered throughout it. I have a 4" DP and 5" straight exhaust and it actually is very quiet. It's very hard to make these trucks real loud. I can have a conversation near my exhaust! (Albeit you have to talk kinda loud, but inside the cab while driving normal I can't tell a difference over just being stock). PTP has turbo back systems I'm pretty sure also.

The CAC pipe is also restrictive. A motor is just a glorified air pump. The easier you make it for air to get in and out the more efficient it can be.

As far as the CCV mod, just do a search there are threads about it everywhere. In my opinion it should def be done.

Leaning toward the Diamond Eye K5370S 5" turbo back system. Any thoughts?

I wouldn't see a problem with it. I went with the cheapest kit I could find (FloPro), but I don't have to worry about salt on the roads to eventually corrode the aluminum. A lot of people who live further north do the stainless.

We have been having issues getting Diamond Eye lately and fitment hasnt been the best. Truth be told, the MBRP kits fit better anyway. Flo-Pro has actually stepped up their quality as well. I suggest going with MBRP or Flo-Pro.
