First thing is go to the dealer and get the new program, My buddy at ford informed me there is a new program for the DPF system that will benefit MPG's. We were out having a few cold ones so I did not ask any questions about it. But I am sure one of the 6.4L guys will chime in.
If not I will call him and get the entire low down for y'all.

Good Luck

As far as TUNES, I hear only good things about Matt at Spartan. But save your money and do the DPF delete Tuner along with a DPF delete exhaust system.

I have had a ton of success with Spartan's package deal. Intake, 250 tune, dpf delete pipe, and exhaust. I am averaging a solid 25 mpg highway and 18 city without a trailor, 22-23 with a 6K trailor.

You need to call Spartan and get the whole package from them. The package is second to none, and they really know their stuff!!! They are sometimes hard to get thru to- but you will not be disappointed.

Yes. Go to the dealership and have them reflash your truck if you have a job 1 build. Then to Spartan for the full package.
