New Owner, new question

Ok, I am driving an 08 F250 King Ranch with the 6.4. I was thinking the truck was stock, as the tail pipe and muffler are stock. So I was looking in to doing the DPF removal and re tune. After looking under the truck, previous owner(s) have removed the cat and DPF, and left the dual tips and muffler. So, my question is how do I go about finding out what was used for tuning? I also see the intake is AFE intake (might have the letters wrong) but the intake isn't stock either. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

sorry ... no help on what brand, but the truck should still have the "tune" in it. I don't think the truck will run with stock tuning and deleted DPF/CAT.

A friend of mine is a diesel tech at a local dealer. I was over there one day while he was running a scan on a Spartan tuned truck (truck would not run). His scan showed files labeled "Spartan"... so I assume the dealer can scan your PCM, if the tune in it is aftermarket, there is a good chance it will have the manufactures name on them.
