Keep'n it simple- 6.4 mod help +

New to the forum. Owned several Dodge oil-burners in the past, but decided to go with a powerstroke this time.

Just picked up a CPO '08. Without digging through 15000 threads and old/outdated info, can someone gimme a few tips on what to do with the truck?

Don't want to void warranty- something that can be removed w/o trace when servicing.
Looking for better mileage.
Potential for more power.

Anything else I should be looking for such as cold-air etc?

Future projects-

DVD for nav head unit.
HID's
Lift
Adding USB ports

Thanks in advance and I look forward to contributing.

Jeff-

Thanks

Those in bold dont really go together. You can chance it and run a dpf delete tuner with a dpf delete. Wont see that much mpg gain, you will see a substantial amount of power and with good driving habits a more reliable/healthy motor. Once back for servicing or whatever if you want to swap it back you can, me personally if I was going to take it to get serviced every 5k miles there is no way I would return to stock everytime

Thanks Woodboy,

The more I look around, it seems that it's pretty much too involved. I'm not one to run to the dealer for oil changes etc, so it's major issues that I'd be taking it in for.

Guess I'll stick with a cold-air, lift etc. Till the warranty expires.

take into consideration the EGR on youre truck is slowly destroying youre engine. running the truck 50k miles with EGR might possibly take 100k+ off the life of the engine.

just my .02.

for one any programmer u put on these trucks is going to leave a foot print in the pcm ecm tcm etc . the egr and dfp system on early 6,4s are known to be problematic . i would take it to the dealer to get a thorough look over and if all checks good get rid of the dpf and egr . the emission system on these trucks do more harm to the engine than there worth .

First call your dealership see how mod friendly they are and also with it being an 08 I'm assuming your warranty is almost up. I'm sure just about everyone on here will agree with me when I say I should have deleted way sooner and not been so concerned with warranty. You gotta do whatever makes you comfortable.
