Comprehensive Tuner List

Greetings, im one of the FNG's here and am learning lots (Thanks up front)

Wondering if someone has posted a comprehensive list of tuners/programmers that have dpf/egr delete capability and their available tunes? Model numbers etc.

Perhaps pros and cons or known issues as well.

Can't find via search so if someone has a link, or perhaps we should start one?

Thanks
CHM aka FNG

Just type programmer in the search box and you will come up with 10 pages minimum

Thats pretty much what Ive been doing and the reason why Im asking.

My ultimate goal is not really HP gains but just better milage and better health of my new (to me) 1 ton. So I just want a programmer that is cheap and can do the EGR and DPF deletes. No need for gauges, screens, tune on the fly...all the fancy bells and whistles.

If you really want to know the health of your motor IMO gauges are a must. I would recommend the h&s minimaxx although they are hard to find.

I just want to know the motor is healthy and not having to struggle to breathe. From what I've read everything about the emissions control equipment makes them ticking time bombs. Getting rid of them to me = healthy.

Just like I dont need to constantly watch a heart monitor to know my heart is healthy.

But I suppose thats off topic.

Thanks guys

The higher hp tunes are going to yield the best fuel mileage. These trucks are extremely picky having a good monitor to watch your coolent, oil tranny and fuel rail pressure is a big step to preventing any costly repairs. Like stated above its your truck, but I would own a 6.4 and not monitor it.

Comprehensive Tuner List

I have a sct 3015R so I can't monitor with that obviously. What is a good device to get just to monitor.

There are three programmers that I would only recommend, and I am sure you came across them already if you did use the search option. Spartan, H&S, or SCT.

Spartan only has the dashdaq which is all you need. Best monitor of them all, great tuning, allows for removal of dpf and egr. Has multiple tunes to choose from all of which are good and have great customer service.

H&S has the XRT Pro Race and Minimax Race. The xrt pro is a handheld tuner which means no monitoring display which you arent concerned with. Has nice tunes, H&S has great customer service. The minimax is a nice little unit, for a little more money you get a display which is fairly nice, not near the monitoring capabilities of the dashdaq, but all in all a good unit, and you can also get the MCC software on it if you decide you want custom tunes.

SCT, all the displays suck really. You have the 3015R, 3025OR, and the 9625OR that you can get custom tuned from IDP,Gearhead, KEM, RCD, TSD, and on and on.

You can buy a dashdaq from DrewTech or you can buy a used spartan locked or unlocked. You can also get a Edge Insight CS or CTS, idk why if you look at the list of parameters on the 6.4 it is small compared to other trucks such as the 6.0 and 6.7
