I loaded mine with an EDGE CTS unit with low miles, and have had great success. Good mileage,the extra gauges on the screen help a lot. Runs smoother and Never any negative effect on the truck (codes or warranties). Mind you i don't push my rig hard often, just on program one all the time and get 13.8 L/kms,I even tow in that level. I too want to add an exhaust but nervous about cutting the DPF. This site has me thinking about adding so much........ i can see learning this stuff will cost me lots of $$$$ but fun !!!

I usually tell people to wait till after your first oil change to start modding your truck, if anything major will happen, it will usually happen in the first 5000 miles, but if you got the cash and don't care about warranty, GAME ON!!!

Made it 2 days and 230 miles before put my Edge EVOHT on. I was not going to remove DPF or get exhaust I told myself and friends. 5k miles I now have an H&S XRT Pro and AFE DPF delete. Couldn't be more happy!
