Exclamation Good tuner for 12 F450 stake body not to much $$

So im looking to get a tuner for my dads 2012 f450 stakebody. The thing has aboslutely no power. its extremely hard to merge into traffic when theres no merge lane. So im looking to get a little more hp out of it with the dpf on. Why does ford detune the commericial 6.7 more then the normal f250 6.7?

I've been battling this myself and like you I have found it can really put you in a Dangerous Position.
Their stand on this,.. They feel that our trucks will be worked harder on average than the normal driver, therefore stressing the drivetrain more. so lowering the power will give more longevity.
Our trucks don't have the Dual Boost Turbo which is so highly pushed in the Sales DVD that encouraged us to buy this truck. Sadly there is no identifying marks to let us know this other than knowledge that the cab/chassis trucks are dfferent.
One step further is, Their attempt to give us more Longevity has backfired on them/us since our turbos have a high fail rate.
Stay watchful of any turbo noise and be sure to voice your thoughts to Ford. Hoping if enough of us handle this correctly they will eventually upgrade us to the proven engine setup, when ours fail. I am on my second turbo now.

Only tuner that I am for sure works on the cab and chassis is the h&s. I contacted them to see if we are supposed to use the same tuner because we have different turbo. One thing I didn't ask was when we put it back to stock does it put the cab and chassis tuning back or the 400/800 from the regular pickups. The turbo thing has me scared because I dont want to be paying for fords mistake of using a different turbo because as soon as I tune the truck that's when it will go. I'm on the fence still. Truck only has 2500 miles so far
