help me pick one

Well my buddy traded his 10 f250 in today on a f150 and said I could have his almost new mini max. He still has the dpf and cat on there but had them gutted if I remember right. I tuned the truck back to stock and drove it around the dealership and no cel and didnt go into regen mode that i know of.
I have a sct livewire now and been running the highest canned tune. I have had good luck with it and getting pretty good mpg. Should I swap tuners and why?
How long does it take after taking a tuner off before it will regen? If it doesnt act up then I can keep both to play with :evil . But I cant take the risk of us selling his truck to someone and acting up because it isnt tuned. Does the edge juice with attuide have a dpf delete? I have one of them that i traded for some all weather mats that ill never use that i much rather trade then my sct.

If your buddy traded in his F250 with a gutted exhaust and without the tuner, you can bet the dealer will be contacting him before long. In my experience, with a mix of highway and street driving, I went through regen about once per tank. Driving around the dealership was may not have been enough use for the ECU to check the status of all the emissions components, but it won't be long before it does and the truck gets shut down. It may be the next time someone tries to crank the truck.
If the exhaust wasn't gutted, then tuning the truck back to stock before removal was the right move.

Last night I returned my truck 08 f250 back to stock on my livewire and loaded the highest tune on the h&s to my truck. It felt alot faster and a little better over all. The mpg seemed to be a good bit less but I also hear that the high tune on the sct makes the computer on the truck read high. I went to move his truck and it wouldnt start. I guess that anwsers that question.
I went to load my livewire on his truck and i got vehicle not supported screen and code fs0p30 and tqjf5. I think that means the sct has to be updated to work on his truck?

I think it means someone needs to put things back the way they were!

If you return it to stock without a dpf you will get one start. In order to start it again you h&s e to clear codes. It will most likely be in limp mode and not sure how long before it goes into regen but since the dpf isn't on there the readings are messed up so it will go into regen anyway to try to fix the issue.

You're really not supposed to sit around mixing and matching tuned vehicles and tuners. Are they all being returned to stock before swapping tuners?

Also, never trust your gauge for accurate MPG. It lies. Hand-calculate all MPG numbers and it'll give you the real answer.
