Few questions on DPF/EGR deletes.
Hate to start a new thread on something that's been said 1000 times before, but I've got a couple quick questions.
I don't have any real experience working on a 6.4, past the preventative maintenance stuff (as I'm a 7.3 owner), but my dad's got a 2010 6.4, and he's looking at doing the deletes, mostly because he's tired of the awful fuel mileage (my truck does better than his)
As far as the hard parts go, I think I'll have him go for the Dirty Diesel EGR delete (looks like a solid kit). The DPF, I'm not too worried about brand, I just want stainless piping, so it doesn't rot out in a few years (thank you Indiana road salt).
The big question in my mind is tuning, he doesn't really want to turn the thing up fuel wise, as it's a daily driver and sees a lot of towing, so all I'd need is a tuner capable of turning off the regen process and not throw a code for a nonexistent EGR system. Question being, what do you guys recommend for tuning?
Other question being, this being a bone stock truck, it shouldn't need a wastegate when I do the EGR system, right?
As far as the wrenching goes, we're both experienced with working on diesel equipment and pickup trucks and have a full set of tools here. (It's a farm shop)
Sorry if this seems like a bunch o' stupid questions, but he's having me research the stuff and I really REALLY, don't want to screw up his truck.
