Stacking DPF-R Delete with tuner

As the title states, I have a DPF-R+ tuner on my rig (dpf delete + 70HP). Given the recent issues with the EPA, what do you all think of me dropping the +70HP portion of my tune, keeping the delete programming, and stacking a standard tuner/monitor like edge or SCT? I have heard stacking tuners is a no-no, but if I am not stacking HP increases is it still going to cause issues?

I am not satisfied with the 70HP increase, and would like to add more. I really drool when I see folks posts regarding the 210-300+ HP tuners from H&S ans Spartan. Anyone got any advice besides "dood, get a better tuner". I would like to avoid the $1500 price tag the H&S and Spartan tuners are running.

The other mod I would really like to do is a low stall torque converter. Considering this is a daily driver/tow rig, is a low stall gonna eat my stock transmission, or even provide a noticable difference? I hate the feeling of wasted RPMs going to heat but not to the ground...If you stick your foot in it, I think you ought to accelerate, not rev to 2100-2500 RPM.

Anyway, long post. Thanks for looking and your input! I am not sure how to update my "signature" line, but I have a 2008 F250 XCLB, Cat/DPF delete pipe. GearboxZ DPF-R+

Well on diesel powers page it says the GearboxZ DPF-R+ stacks with chips and other programmers, so it would seem that it is capable of doing so. Why not just buy an H&S or Spartan with the DPF delete already inside before they are gone? Either way I'm sure you would be fine.

I would love to get one, but like I said, the $1500 price tag is a bit daunting. If I could afford that, I would have done so in the first place and not tried to save $ with the DPF-R. I am happy with the unit, it does what it says, but I realize now that it is installed, I would like a bit more zip.
