6.4 Tuning

Can someone recommend a tuner or chip for a 08 f250 6.4L that will increase both horsepower, mileage and will not smoke. A friend recommended the six gun. Are they any good? I have also heard that a chip will work just as good with better mileage for 1/2 the price.
I currently have a bully dog tuner on my truck. I am not satisfied with it. Not seeing an increase in mileage and my truck smokes with the tuner installed.

its still under warranty for another 50k miles. not sure if I want to do it at this time. Besides Nevada requires smog checks every year when I renew the tags. Would have to register in a state that doesn't require smog. Unless you know a way to get around the smog testing. it has the banks air filter and DPF back exhaust. Right now just looking for better mileage and a little more HP.

In that case then I've heard good things about the Banks dpf installed tuning. H&S and Spartan also have dpf installed tuning but I haven't heard of that many people running the dpf installed tuning for any substantial period. It seems like most people get those brands with the intention to delete.

Also forgot to mention, you probably won't see much of an increase in mileage with dpf installed tuning. You will probably see power increases though.

Why not just take the DPF off after testing and then when it comes time to test, put it back on. That's my plan anyway. I didn't pay $40,000 for a truck to die from the DPF prematurely.

I would go the route nvhunter is going chances are if you do some more read watch, then sooner or later you will delete anyways. If you plan on keeping the truck for a while I would take it off put it in the garage until smog test. It's one day a year you gotta bolt it on the take it off. The pros well out weigh the cons.
