I Want To Tune But......
I've been a PSD owner for 4 years now. My first one was a 2000 CCSB 7.3L. I bought it with 104K miles and sold it 6 weeks ago with 189K miles. I've wanted a 6.7L truck ever since they were introduced in 2010 and I finally bought one. I picked up a new 2012 CCSB 6 weeks ago and I already have 9,000 miles on it. I have not had one single problem with this truck and I couldn't be happier, except for the cruise control.
On my 7.3L, I put in a PHP 6 position chip, full 4" exhaust, and a CAI. I was very impressed with the difference it made and I badly want to do it to my new 6.7L but I'm scared to death something is going to break on the truck. I'm not scared that tuning or exhaust will cause the problem though.
I'm not one that rawhides a truck, I don't race and so far I've only pulled 16K pounds with it and I probably wont haul much more that that. I've never even floored this truck in stock form. I just like te "seat of pants" feel when you pass someone.
I will buy a tuner, probably H&S, and I will do a 4" MBRP exhaust with a muffler. I mainly want to delete the DPR & DEF but I do not want a loud exhaust.
Realistically, what are the odds of my truck having a major failure since the first 9,000 miles have been trouble free? I've noticed exhaust systems say with or without bungs, which one do I need? Should I go ahead and do the EGR delete or wait till warranty is up, so it'll be easier to return to stock if I have to carry it back in.
Any help or opinions are greatly appreciated.
