6.4: To tune or not to tune???
Guys.....I am new to this site and to diesels. I just bought a 2010 F350 with 6.4 .....truck has 11,000 miles on it. I have been doing alot of research and I see alot of 6.4 owners are doing the DPF delete. I priced out the recommended H&S MiniMaxx and was going to buy one but started getting cold feet. I am always nervous about modifying my truck and having issues or dealer void my warranty. Also....I'm not really looking for more HP, if I bought one it would really just be to delete the harmful DPF regen's. Truck is my daily driver and I dont want to put too much HP in it and create issues since it is stock.
Here are my questions for those that have done the delete and run a minimaxx tuner:
Will my exhaust be loud once I remove the DPF?
will it make the truck smoke noticable?
For the delete pipe....do I need one with the bungs and reinstall all the sensors from DPF pipe?
What is a "safe" tune to run that will increase MPG and not put too much HP on the drivetrain/motor to cause issues?
