Looking at stacking with the DPF-R

What tuners could I stack with the Gearboxz DPF-R?

I'd love to get a spartan or mini maxx race but they're very expensive. I'm going to be deleting my EGR, DPF, and CAT so I need a tuner that can do that.

Maybe there's some other more affordable option that I don't know about? I appreciate it!

If you stack you will be spending more money on repairs then a spartan cost

I know stacking can be popular among the cummins people or a smarty, it seems like the mini max and spartan are the only way to go if you want to delete dpf and egr.

Custom tune writers for powerstrokes almost always program everything parameter in the ecm they can so there is no need for stacking! Only stacking that actually works is getting a FICM tune and a ECM tune... But that's for a 6.0

Sounds good to me, any custom tune companies that are recommended and how much do those usually run?

I'm not a 6.4 guy but I do know the H&S can change power levels on the fly and lots of guys use them... The other top competitor is Spartan, but I'd say is 2nd place to the H&S tuning... I'm just a dumb 6.0 guy
