Mini maxx ordered!

Just ordered a mini maxx tonight since the price was going up tomorrow and we won't be able to get dpf delete ones for long. I have a warranty right now so I don't think I'll be putting it on for a while, and if I decide down the road to sell it I know I won't lose my money. I know I'll be tempted to delete everything once I get it but I think I can resist the urge for a while haha. I've never tuned a vehicle before anyway. Anyone feel like convincing me to delete once my factory warranty is up? I'm not looking to do a power tune whatsoever, just delete to increase the longevity of the engine life. I'm well aware of blocks getting destroyed because of thrown rods and such, but with stock power will I have nothing to worry about?
I know guys are sick of all these tuner threads but I figure each thread is personal to the op, and since there are few regarding the 6.7 I figure it's not too big of a deal.

Hey atleast you can run a dpf on tune until your ready to delete fully. I don't think you'll need convincing to delete egr once you take the elbow off and look into the manifold and see all that soot that's caked on it. You'll be amazed and baffled that ford would do that to such an expensive motor. And get an oil sample kit from blackstone laboratories and send in an oil sample and you'll see how bad the insolubles are and how much diesel is in your oil- and seeing how bad the oil is diluted by that. And if your not exactly sure what long term use of running your truck with diesel diluted oil will do- just search that and you'll be more than convinced to delete the emissions shiit off that truck Immediately!

Why not install a dpf delete pipe and turn off the egr with the mini maxx? That way you can be deleted but switch it back to stock for warranty work and ect?
You may need to clean the soot off the tips before taking it in or just out an aftermarket downpipe back exhaust on and put the old exhaust back on when you go into the dealer?

That's what I do^^^^

I have a 4" dpf delete pipe, and before I deleted I had a 5" magnaflow dpf back. So I just swap them back and take it in. No big deal. And that way you don't have to worry about soot on your stock tips and having to clean them because they are a pain to clean all them fins in the exhaust

LOL this was on the card. I didn't plan on spending any money on exhausts yet, I want to at least wait until my factory warranty is up, I'm still concerned about a typical issue happening that won't be covered. I think I would most likely just do the DPF delete pipe and DPF back for now. If the extended warranty is not actually through Ford do the dealerships and techs still care about or flag exhausts and tuners?

I've often wondered this myself.
