I would go with the Spartan first, and a DPF delete pipe. , then the the S&B, AFE, or some other intake system, and then the exhaust. It's really up to you...

I think you should do the exhaust first, Get the truck to breathe easier first, then the programmer will be more effective. Just my opinion.

I didn't know if I could change the exhaust and put the delete pipe in and drive it from the muffler shop to home and it run without installing the spartan. don't want to be stranded if everything doesn't work.

In answer to that question, YES you have to have the programmer to put the DPF delete pipe on. Wont work without it.

You must get both at the same time.

AGREED 100%! I was in the same situation, but i ended up buying the spartan Phalanx and my dpf delete pipe and it was the best choice i could have made. The power and mpg is awesome. Now im going to buy my intake and exhaust here in the near future.

Not to mention i love the look on the peoples faces as i pull up to them in what seems to be a completely "stock" truck and then dump out some black smoke like thres no tomorrow as im pulling farther and farther away from them... ahahah

I think you should be fine for a short drive with dpf on and delete tuning, then again you could pry install the tuning as the exhaust is being installed...

I loaded the tune, drove a couple miles then installed the pipe. I used some copper antisieze on the probes, just in case.
