new 12 6.7

we just bought a new 6.7 f450 dumptruck. Im not looking to make this thing any louder or like a racecar or blow smoke. But what would be the best type of performance to get some power out of it?

Usually people with a dump truck would be more interested in getting more life out of it than more power. I can't believe the stock performance isn't more than adequate - what are you using the truck for?

Yah you are right, I guess what I was trying to say was what are things you can do to beef the motor to let it run better and smoother, and more efficient? This dumptrucks going to be worked and anything to help it get anything better would be great

It might not be the answer you want to hear but I wouldn't touch it. To do any deletes requires a tuner and any tuner will void your powertrain warranty. The DEF system does not use much EGR and so is much friendlier to the engine than the old EGR emission system.

U guys don't realize we have the 300hp tune lol, u guys have 400 from the factory, u lucky dogs. I have been contemplating deleting everything on mine but I have seen too many issues tuning with little sensors and stuff like that so if you don't have a mod friendly dealer then I'm not risking it. My dealer told me as long as I bring it back stock they don't mind but I don't really trust them.
